    I have been working at Union Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Market pay and benefits. Overall a decent stepping stone for students coming out of college. Good coworkers. Decent cafeteria if you forget to bring lunch.

    Cons

    Cross-functional collaboration is non-existent, very much in a silo. Not an ideal place for career growth, you will not expand outside of your silo. I've seen way too many good people go because of this. Good for senior level employees just trying to slide into retirement. Questionable fraternization between managing director and junior/intern level employees. Questionable immigration practices/manipulation of immigration...

    Advice to Management

    Research integrity and try to incorporate it into your daily lives, if you work hard at it, you may even grow spines some day. Don't break the law. Don't fraternize with subordinate employees. Break down the silos to increase career enrichment and collaboration.
