    I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Financially backed by large mega conglomerate in Mitsubishi UFG.

    Cons

    The bank's cost per loan is not competitive. The systems and processes in this place are currently very inefficient, and there are tons of control gaps within the Finance space. This is partly due to people having stayed with the company for a very long time, and having gotten used to do things the old school way. I'm surprised they don't still use fax machines. Raises and bonuses are very low and barely keep up with inflation. The 401K is vested annually.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in fresh minds from outside the company to rejuvenate and innovate from within.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. In the 10 years I was there we had three different CEOs and upper management changed three times as well. They hire their friends for positions they are not qualified for. And they keep laying off employees but hire senior leaders who don't know or can do any of the work. Very disorganized and hostile environment.

    Advice to Management

    Land on a direction and strategy and share it.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the people. There are a lot of good and talented employees. Decent pay and benefits for a bank.

    Cons

    No vision from the leaders. Legacy systems and processes are in place which can cause frustration. No training, so employees are afraid of asking for help in fear that they'll look incompetent. This actually leads to incompetence down the line.

    HR's hiring process is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees right, and get feedback from the people doing the work, they know what they're doing.
