Great People, Bad Mgmt

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I have been working at Bank of the West full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA lot of the employees at BOW are genuine, nice people who are lovely to work with.

ConsManagement seems to be going in a direction of pressuring their employees to get more sales all the time. They always emphasized to employees the importance of offering additional products and services, but now they are pressuring employees to pressure customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want happy employees and customers, relax the constant sales pressure. Customers don't like to be pressured, and employees don't like doing it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
