    I have been working at UMB Financial Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I started out entry level and have been fortunate enough to take on positions that have advanced my career. My leader has been my biggest advocate and has supported my development and challenged me to think different and take risks. I never thought I'd be here after 15 years, but this is my home and I'm thrilled to work for such a fun but family filled environment.

    Cons

    No cons that I have about UMB.

    Advice to Management

    Mariner is amazing and we are lucky to have such an outstanding CEO.

    Pros

    A weekly paycheck and good insurance.

    Cons

    No room for advancement if your supervisor/manager does not approve. Personal feelings are not a great way to make a decision on the growth of others.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Consider the reasons why there are changes in behaviors. Also, do not make them seem "less than" others depending on the job title.

    I have been working at UMB Financial Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I don't have any Pros any longer. I was very excited to work with this company when I started and had a great time at the start. But now have a manager and team from hell.

    Cons

    Inconstancy between how one is treated by managers
    Weak upper managers controlled by lower managers
    Very poor training, if you can't figure it out yourself be prepared to be forced out of your job
    Many employees leaving to work for their competitor, I may leaving to work for them soon.
    Backstabbers on teams
    Workplace gossip runs rampant

    Advice to Management

    Start paying more attention to what's happening to your lower level employees. Moral
