    Pros

    UMB has a culture that inspires excellence internally. They promote community involvement, sustainability, and have great benefits like transportation, adoption and education assistance.

    Cons

    If you have any issues working at UMB, management will find a solution for you. One downfall is the formal business dress code and no non-traditional work schedules.

    Advice to Management

    It would be fantastic to drop the formal dress code for non customer facing positions. Non-traditional work schedules would help improve the work / life balance.

    Pros

    The people are great, the benefits are fantastic, and you feel like you are part of a family. The industry is fascinating and we are growing like crazy year after year.

    Cons

    Even though we have better benefits and perks than any other place I have worked, there are a handful of people that treat these perks as entitlements.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate a little better but overall doing a great job.

    I worked at UMB Financial Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Very laid back and great people to work with. Everyone is very helpful so you know you can always know someone has your back.

    Cons

    The only cons I would have is that the mid level managers should have more communictations with the rest of the employees.

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

    Pros

    Leadership starting to feel aligned at mid to senior level.
    Transparency is increasing.
    Front line associates are thought about first to ensure equality on decisions made at top of house.
    Finally wanting to listen to front line and regional management verses previously aggressive top down approach.

    Cons

    Lack true leadership/coaching development training.
    Lack strong mentoring program.
    Lack strong career development program.
    Some knee jerk reactions on operational things that cause the pendulum to swing quickly one way or another.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in longer term impact coaching/leadership training at all management levels.

    The front line wants to see you, it is welcomed to come into a banking center and say hello.

    Pros

    Good company with a strong conservative foundation that sets the stage for long-term success. Have a strong focus on technology and have always focused on diversified revenue streams through fee income products and services. Stayed true to their core geographic footprint. Good place to work if you're looking for reasonable stability (nothing is guaranteed forever), but not necessarily if you want to launch your career rapidly.

    Cons

    Smaller than bigger companies so opportunities for advancement are more difficult. Like all companies they need to make sure organizational walls don't get in the way of doing business correctly. Have always been a little cheap when it comes to rewarding employees.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees more. Make sure employees are all focused on the vision of the agency and the role that everyone can play in making it come true.
