    Management only interested in stock price, not employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsAn employee can learn a lot. If you accept a position, learn what you can, then get out.

    ConsConstant hiring of upper management. Constant lay-offs of existing employees. As a result, employees rarely feel secure in their jobs. Little room for growth for existing employees. Executive management out of touch with general dissatisfaction of employees or don't care. Stressful environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Limited Ability to Realize Full Potential

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsDue to smaller size of company work environment is not as formal as larger corporations.
    Strong focus on servicing the customer which is evident at the branch level.

    ConsClose-minded culture which does not allow for internal advancement; therefore not an environment for the ambitious professional. Additional training is not offered to improve job knowledge nor sharpen skills. Regional decision making as emphasized to clients is an exaggeration; in reality decisions are heavily influenced by others beyond the local level. Employees are not valued as an asset to the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on improving the work environment as a multi-faceted arena for employees. Moral is extremely low and many employees feel stuck in a job where you just come to get a paycheck. All professional positions should be posted internally to allow equal for equal opportunity. Low payscale compared to market.

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

    A good company to work for but senior management at branch level was very out of touch and did not care about employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsUCB has a good benefits package. The paid time off was very reasonable. The perks such as employee loan rates were excellent.

    ConsWhile the benefits package was good, the health insurance was fairly expensive compared to other places I had worked. There was very little recourse at a higher level in dealing with problems with local management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at local management. There are many in those positions that do not know how to effectively deal with personnel issues and many good people have left the bank because of that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    "Return to purgatory"

    Special Assets Officer (Current Employee)

    Pros(1.) Benefits are conducive to industry standard.
    (2.) Great people to work with.
    (3.) Senior management supports regional decisions.

    Cons(1.) Negative information regarding the company is not disseminated properly. Months may go by before some are privy to negative ratings or market sentiment.
    (2.) Vacation time is based on a series of ranges with an employee receiving 10 days, if employed for 1-5 years.
    (3.) Systems are completely deficient and prehistoric.

    Advice to Senior Management(1.) Sell to a larger institution and accept retirement offers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
