    Pros

    Good people and company. Strong brand and big company with many projects in the pipeline. So there is plenty to be done.

    Cons

    No training and hard to feel a part of "the team" as a contractor. I've never worked as a contractor before and not having the team collaboration is tough.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the past it was a company that did what was right for their clients and their customers.

    Cons

    The Retail Management who came from Wells and BofA have brought their unreasonable sells demands to UB so it is no longer any different. Burn out the employees and sell stuff the client doesn't need.

    Advice to Management

    Employees is what has made us different and is what got and kept our customers happy

    Pros

    Great working environment. Pay with compensation is good. Management is positive which created a stress-free atmosphere. Extra perks are a cafeteria, coffee barista and gym.

    Cons

    The commute to work is absolutely horrible. That's not a negative on the company itself, just the location. Hour lunch was too long for me. Could offer just 1/2 hour lunch and leave work earlier.

    Pros

    Managerial flexibility. The leaders I have been privileged to work for at this company have been flexible in allowing me to run my team as I see fit in order to bring about a cultural shift.

    Cons

    Inconsistent process and senior leadership. At the top of the company the message is almost insignificant. Nothing ever gets pushed down far enough so that change can occur. The leaders that have been brought in to make actual improvements/change, are never actually allowed to do the job they were hired to do. It seems the Japanese leadership is quite reluctant to trust.

    Advice to Management

    Japan calls the shots. Until they allow things to be run differently by the people THEY have hired to make change, nothing will ever change.
