Third Rate Bank Trying to be First Rate--They will never make it. Avoid them
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 30, 2017
MUFG is not one company but two. Union Bank (retail bank) on the west coast of the USA and (Bank of Tokyo Commercial Bank) on the east coast merged to become MUFG a few years ago, One bank, two cultures.

The powers that be in Japan decided that worst of all benefits should be established within the bank upon the merger. Paid time off, healthcare etc. should become the least desirable upon the merger. The powers that be also believed that management of the retail bank (west coast) should take over roles of the commercial bank (east coast). Not a smart move as many of the best employees have left.

Technology is antiquated. Capable people are few. HR is a joke.
It is best to stay away until the growing pains end (if they ever do)
Pros
Good Locations on east coast (Mid Manhattan Jersey City)
Cons
Union Bank runs the show.

IT Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJJuly 31, 2017
Strong internal community of talented and motivated workers. Poor management from Managing Director level. Muddled communication regarding every changing processes. Technology teams, by rule, wear many hats and competent and communicative.

Excellent career opportunity
Manager (Current Employee) –  Tempe, ArizonaJune 25, 2017
I have worked for many top employers in my career and this is by far the very best company yet! Having been with the bank for over six years, I have found the leadership, culture, values, and opportunities to be among the best. I highly recommend MUFG.
Pros
Career opportunity, challenge, meaningful work, people, culture, values, rewards, and recognition

Poor Culture
Sr. Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZMay 12, 2017
Senior leadership in HR all came from the same place (countrywide Financial). They need new senior leadership in the HR space. Pay is good but culture is very poor.

If you have a choice, take the other choice.
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJApril 6, 2017
Worked there as an analyst. People stay here for decades with very little advancement. A lot of lifers in the company.
Everything is insanely manual(I cannot stress this point enough), and tech improvements are only promises.
A lot of micromanagement. Spent a lot of time explaining errors over penny differences. There is a report for everything and the useful ideas are overlooked.
Only positive thing was the reasonable work schedule of 9-5:30 with a 1 hour lunch, hard to find that in finance now.

Terrible Training
Account Reconciliation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZJune 23, 2016
I don't even know where to begin with all the stories this Company has told that wasn't true. First my Trainer was from CA, extremely nice and knowledgable. But, the system failures and IT reps were not helpful. You would think when hiring a new staff(small) you would have everything working on first day..OK if not first day, then maybe third day. Well, this was not the case. After all the chaos, I decided to leave. OK some say it wasn't the best choice but, it was mine. Then to find out that others left as well. That in it self should tell you something.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Lack of training

Productive environment,with Crabs in the Bucket attitudes
Former member (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAJune 9, 2016
This work environment was full of management issues, the ratio of Supervisors to employees were 3 to 1. There was no official training and regular employees are treated like temps.The overall atmosphere showed how unhappy most employees were. Time accountability was ridiculous, employees are required to E-mail a manager and 2 supervisors in and out every single break.The employees enter workplace like they are going into a dungeon
Pros
Employees are helpful
Cons
Work unorganized

Falling apart with lack of direction
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 4, 2016
The bank was doing quite well until the merger to MUFG Union Bank. Essentially Japanese management decided that a retail bank could run an investment bank which resulted in poor accountability and the for the first time a lack of job security. It's probably best to stay away from them until everything is resolved over the next few years.
Pros
Not many-work life balance
Cons
No direction, inflexibility, never equal to a Japanese worker

Unstable
executive (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CADecember 21, 2015
Company was acquired about a year ago and going through the final stages of downsizing. Alot of people leaving and no chance for advancement unless you know someone in upper management. However, with the new workday implementation. Pay increases are not minimal to keep things fair finally. Alot of favoritism. Benefits are minimal and no more pension plans. Bonus are not through out and are still being distributed to people that have not earned them while others work hard.Alot of office politics.
Pros
Gym, starbucks cafe, alot of volunteer opportunities
Cons
Office, politcs, unstable, poor pay

IRMG Audit Team - Applications
Sr Applicaitons Auditor (Former Employee) –  Monterey Park, CAMay 5, 2015
Worked for over a year and the people that I worked with were great. Great co-workers, but management was not good. The entire audit team is going through restructuring and there have been some good audit SVPs let go during this time. The managers that you interact with on a daily basis can make things frustrating and annoying at times. They never listen to you, just bark orders and accept it. Very moody and their weekly team meetings are toxic. All they do during meetings is to put you in the spotlight in front of your peers. A lot of ppl have transferred out of audit and into other positions. The Applications Audit team in general is not a good place to work in. Lots of turn over and overall not good. If you really need a job and like getting kicked in the face, then go for it. Otherwise, go somewhere else.
Pros
Peers, 9/80 schedule, onsite cafeteria, close to good restaurants
Cons
Mgmt, culture, work environment

Specialist (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJApril 2, 2015
I'm busy from the time I walk in the door until the time I clock out. I have learned so many things working for MUFG. Management is fair. There is always opportunity for learning and advancement. My co-workers are fair and have been good with training. The hardest part of my job is practicing patience and pacing myself. I like to learn and moving to someone else's pace can be challenging. The most enjoyable part of my job is the fast pace. I like to stay busy when I'm working.
Pros
Opportunity for avancement
Cons
not much vacation time given
