    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries, downtown SF location

    Cons

    Too much of a traditional banking structure. Not adapting to advances in technology, not competing with other Bay Area companies with respect to culture/work life balance/benefits, recent cost saving initiatives have led to layoffs, complete halts to business travel, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of communicating the company's objectives and trajectory to employees. Give people purpose/meaning in their roles.

    The pay and benefits are very fair and better than what is offered at most banks. Good management support. Overall it's a great company to work for.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. full-time

    Pros

    Client focused. This position allows you to grow your knowledge around ALL realms of banking. I came from another institution where you would just refer to a partner (i.e. business specialist, loan representative) for sales and loans/lines, but here, you do it all. I have learned about setting up trusts, deceased processing, business lines/loans, consumer products and you input and gather docs while also communicating to underwriter through the whole process. It allows you to expand your knowledge and grow in your profession. Gives you an upper hand if you ever decide to leave.

    Cons

    Not a lot of growth from within. They value hiring outside hiring to "build their book of business." VERY goal focused with not a lot of bonus opportunity. The base pay is decent, but for the work you feel underpaid. VERY strict lending guidelines, hard to get loans booked, but still possible.

    Advice to Management

    Allow growth within Union Bank. Dont put as much pressure on bankers, goals are too strict. Also, stop trying to push us to do little tick mark daily activities.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and raises. Salary is good. Location in jersey city is very nice. Good commute.

    Cons

    Its just like every other 9-5 job such as insurance companies or banks. Software is a bit outdated. Lack proactivity in culture.

    Lets try to move the ship faster. Everything seems to be slow.
