    No much of a downside you get what you put out in the company. this being a bank you need to have a realist expectation before you come in

    It's a wonderful place to work. Staff is friendly and always trying to meet our customer's needs. Benefits are great! Definitely, Our number one priority is our Customers, Customer Service, Balancing, Policies and Procedures.

    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 a year)

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of perks for contract employee. Paid sick leave, paid vacation, benefits.

    Cons

    Unless you are a favorite of management, you probably wont' get hired on permanent.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, do not try to hire based on trying to diversify the department.

    Easy Job
    Chances to advance
    Fair work load

    Cons

    Bad Upper management
    Disorganization in campaigns sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees know when they're doing a good job more often. I really Loved this job when I was hired in 2008, over my 4 years there it changed like many banks. It was a sales job so I had no issue selling and I understood our sales goals were aggressive but my biggest issue was that we felt undervalued by the company. overall it was a good place to work with fair pay and a pretty easy job
