    I worked at OneWest Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Secure work environment. Very punctual and professional environment. Great location.

    Management is out of touch and micromanages as a result. Some managers may take away any thought of flexibility even if you've proven to be a top performer and have a team that overachieves.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to improve their relationship with their staff on all levels. Show them they are appreciated and they will work even harder. Reward them for excelling in their duties.

    Management is very knowledgeable and experienced. They do a great job of balancing leadership and employee relationships. Good enough pay, good incentive, awesome co-workers and work environment for the most part.

    Pay could be better and is better with other companies with similar jobs.
    Job security is not guaranteed.
    Bonuses could be better.

    Provide better bonuses, incentives, and compensation and there will be very little turn over. Other than that, keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Through the ruins of three failed Banks, out came a diamond in the rough. Joseph Otting and Steven Mnuchin have built a Senior Leadership team that set the tone for OneWest's Business Principles.

    OneWest is a great place to learn and grow with promotional opportunites through out the Company.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Consider expanding the Company's primary volunteer opportunities to organizations other than just Junior Achievement.
