Good place to work, technology needs updating
Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 25, 2016
Days are long due to heavy workload (Everything is priority 1)!
Management is good in head office, but current NY management is overly aggressive, which doesn't fit well with bank's measured and thoughtful approach.
Co-workers are intelligent and competent, know their jobs well.
Hardest part of the job is keeping senior US management happy, while making sure work fits with global strategy.
Pros
Really good benefits
Cons
Too chaotic

Bank changed their direction too often
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Roseville, CAMarch 29, 2016
When I first started at Rabobank it was a great place to work. By the time I left it had become a hostile work environment at times. The Executive Management Group made too many changes to the focus of the bank and what type of bank they wanted to be. They grew faster than they could handle thus creating a confusing work environment.
Pros
Rabobank in the Netherlands was built on a solid foundation with over 150 years of experience.

Vice President, Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Angels Camp, CAMay 30, 2015
Rabobank's mission to provide their customers, communities and employees the best products and services is maintained on a daily basis. Their goal of 100% accountability is held in highest priority from the CEO to branch staff.

Every day is the goal to provide the best service for the customers while maintaining the goals and integrity of the company. Management is easily accessible to discuss options and concerns and overall employee engagement is very high. The hardest part of the job is organizing staff at multiple offices and keeping employee motivation high. The best part of going to work every day it working with clients and engaging in a positive team atmosphere.
Pros
Belief in their mission.
Cons
Growing pains

Enjoyable company with an aggressive and competitive attitude.
Business Banking Officer (Current Employee) –  Anywhere in CaliforniaApril 17, 2015
Check email and confirm appointments that was set for that day and meet with clients. Contact all referrals and potentials clients. Each clients have their own obstacle financial situations. It's always nice if you are trained by your manager the way he or she likes it to be done. I have always build a strong relationship with my co-workers and make them feel that they can come to me for business and personal advice. The hardest part of the job is when clients can not provide you the information that you need to close the loan and the most enjoyable part of the job is when you can be creative to put the loan together and close it when no one else can get it done.
Pros
Work on your own time, expense allowance and commissions is unlimited.
Cons
Lot's of driving and work on weekends.

Just a job
Customer Service Rep II (Current Employee) –  Santa Maria, CAJune 27, 2014
The work atmosphere is sometimes disjointed. It's like high school where each division is there on little clique and some don't work well with others. There's a lot of pass the buck mentality and management is more likely to try and cross-train people to do various tasks but unwilling to follow through to make sure that those trained have adequate knowledge before moving them to that position.

I understand that cross-training to do multiple tasks is the wave of business but in some part management should realize that in some instances bringing staff to areas already lacking in personnel is sometimes better than trying to make few people learn more of everyone else's jobs and thus hurting morale.

Great place to work while looking for another job
Manager (Former Employee) –  Arroyo Grande, CAAugust 29, 2012
I was at RNA for almost 5 years. I was a mid level manager there during that time. RNA rules:
#1- No one from the inside gets promoted
#2- No one, no matter how well they perform, will get more than a 3% merit increase per year
#3- If you don't work in Roseville, your career is dead
#4- If an employee complains about their manager, they are as good as fired. RNA believes in "managing people out".
#5- Upper management always take credit for work their underlings perform

RNA, from a global standpoint out of Utrecht, has a great corporate culture. However, the culture at RNA in CA is toxic. Everyone is afraid to lose their jobs. Especially upper- not senior- management. As an employee you will quickly lose interest and ambition and quickly begin looking elsewhere. Its actually too bad, as the place has a lot of potential. Its a big bank thats made up of alot of small failed banks, so there are too many people in important positions that do not know how to do their jobs. They'll throw alot of money around at employees, just not the ones in the lower 90% of the tier. As a manager there, I was used to promising prospective employees big bonus potential knowing full well it would never come to fruition. Thats the RNA way. Also, HR has way too much say in the operations of the business. Their reach goes beyond just the normal day to day function of most HR departments. Its actually kind of weird.

If you can find another company, go with it. Too many unfulfilled promises at RNA. It will not advance your career.
Pros
growing company, fast paced, dynamic.
Cons
growing company, fast paced, dynamic, schizophrenic management decisions

Good place to work. Management care about their co-workers.
CSR lll (Former Employee) –  Arroyo Grande, CAApril 19, 2013
Steady flow of customers, was crossed trained in a few area's, management was involved with what was going on and really cared about her staff. Hardest part was being laid off. Most enjoyable was going to work everyday knowing I would put a smile on someones face and knowing I helped them with any issues they had and they left happy. Also working with a great staff! It's nice when we are all team players and are willing to help each other out with what ever is going on.
Pros
when we hit our goals they rewarded with a lunch, let us know how well we were doing, that they appreciated it, got to wear casual attire on fridays
Cons
not enough full time positions.
