    Lots of long time employees because they used to offer a pension.

    Outdated computer programs. No support for growth.

    Train the management on how to work with people. Many of them are lifetime employees that are rude and old fashioned.

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

    Pros

    Great staff/immediate managers.
    Great money/bonuses.
    O.K. work-life balance, but room for improvement--they need to invest more in "automation" mind-set to get rid of manual processes that just suck the time and life out of its I.T. people. They are getting there.

    Cons

    This is probably just the way it is now for any large corporation, but up the ranks, you're nothing but a number. There is no sense of loyalty no matter how long you've been with the company. One false move/screw up and you're out. They have plenty of off-shore temps available on a moment's notice anyway. And if your peer gets the ax, don't expect your peer to be replaced anytime soon--you'll just pick up the slack. Very morale stifling.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the core values from the past management. This used to be a great place to work. EVERYONE wonders what happened to the soul of this once great company. Train from within--allow lateral movement. We're all dissatisfied with the role we've been pidgeon-holed year-after-year--little to no room for growth. Why is this company notorious for NOT training. Always empty promises for a training budget.

    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.
