    I have been working at Union Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is in transition of systems, processes and product mix . The financial services industry is being disrupted by new innovations, technology and regulations. and the company is behind due to lack of historical investments in technology, infrastructure and processes. The last few years the parent has made a valiant effort and provided substantial resources to improve systems, there seems to be a commitment to see it through.

    Cons

    This is causing strain on existing and new employees. The new Senior Managers seem to lack the management skills needed to communicate effectively with their team. Only time will tell if the current Executive Management have the solutions to guide the Bank to become competitive with the money center institutions and the changing landscape of banking.

    Advice to Management

    Running a business isn't only data and analytics, in this changing environment - "human kindness "is more important than ever.

    I worked at Union Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was part of a new, in-house agency. The beginning was exciting, we expanded quickly, and our group was tight knit.

    Cons

    The in-house agency was dismantled entirely within 2 years. Management kept shifting and was ultimately remote. Typically corporations will experiment with using in-house talent versus external agencies and we got caught in that shift.

    Good company to work for. Amazing group of people who are in the support team. good benefits. Flexibility is there depending on what business unit you work for and if you have an understanding manager.

    Cons

    technology is outdated. process are not streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if we can also review our managers as well, not just the employees.
