Great colleagues, process confusion
IT Specialist (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 30, 2019
Great people, obsolete technology, process confusion. Large company with constant reorgs and CTO, CIO turnover. Respectful, fair and flexible place to work but that varies with your boss and department. You are on your own for a career path. Most staff have been here 10+ years due to stability, pay and benefits. Not a great place to start a career or pick up marketable skills.
Pros
Competitive salary, work life balance, diversity valued, flexible hours
Cons
Old technology, struggling to reorganize, management confusion

Great place
Associate VP (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 30, 2019
Great place to work. Flexible and plenty of opportunities for career growth. Still growing and expanding. As with any large company, there are silos and can be challenging to connect with the appropriate resources.

Not great but they do have some positives
Employee Relations Consultant (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZJanuary 9, 2019
Work/life balance was "preached" in meetings and such but not actioned in reality. Low morale and upper management was not approachable as they got "defensive" whenever challenged. Systems are VERY outdated. Constant lay-offs caused a lot of negative culture growth.

Compensation was very generous (including any annual merit-based incentives). Free coffee/tea. Met a lot of great partners/colleagues.
Pros
Free coffee; awesome pay
Cons
Low morale; non-supportive management

Good company for fresh graduates
Account Associate (Former Employee) –  Shenzhen, ChinaAugust 7, 2018
I was working in the Shenzhen branch of MUFG. This is a very international company and we mainly use 4 languages at work. I was in the corporate banking department. This is an excellent department to build our interpersonal relationship and expand our business. The financial statement analysis and loan business really open my world. I left only because of master's study. Great experience.

Terrible
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 30, 2018
The company is poorly run. Management is not experienced and often make poor choices in leading the organization forward.

If you come in as a contractor the company goes out their way not to include you in various Company activities. Contractors who have been working at MUFG past their contract can have it renewed however, if you apply to internal positions, it is VERY rare you will be contacted or converted to FTE. Yet, they tell each other good talent is hard to find. Perhaps if they considered the contractors that are there, on-site, doing the job successfully, they can find qualified talent.


Systems are old and antiquated. The culture is awful. Turnover is crazy high. Speaking for myself, i was told it was a new role i was interviewing for in April 2018, only to find out 3 other people were in the role in less than 1 years time.
Pros
Pay

Review Summary for MUFG
Vice President, Front Office & Risk BA (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 22, 2018
My day starts 8 AM till about 6 PM

I worked as a FO and Risk Business Analyst with a great exposure to the desk and market and counterparty risk

My boss was hands-off and gave me some latitude in driving the day to day, but provided direction when i needed it

Overall culture is similar to other Japanese banks

Hardest part of the job was slowness in getting approvals, and also systems were old and not up to scratch

Best part is work life balance
Pros
work/life balance, many projects
Cons
can be a little slow to get get approvals

No Work life Balance
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 6, 2018
NO work life balance and management doesn't care. If you have family, management doesn't care. You are a machine and they own you. They will text you all hours (even 2am). Executive leadership under Risk is horrific. Steer clear if you're management is under that umbrella. Constant shifting of leadership, directional scope, training, etc. Risk is an extremely unstable group, primary Issues Management. You could be laid off at a moments notice and not see it coming. New leadership is brutal and cares only for her reputation, not the lives of her associates.
Pros

No work life balance

Awful workplace. Work elsewhere.
Information Security Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJMay 16, 2018
Too many meetings. No program level strategy. Require strict focus on EPLC rigid process which adds months of delay to projects that lack adequate funding from the start. New managers lack managerial skills. Micromanager that manages through fear and intimidation and favoritism.
Pros
Friendly helpful colleagues
Cons
Terrible micro management. Draconian work environment. Terrible work life balance.

Horrible!
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 19, 2018
MUFG is a terrible place to work. Do not be fooled if you are from another bank. This place is deceptive and a disaster. Management is clueless and the technology is old, weak and in decline. AVOID IT!
Pros
None
Cons
Liars in management, MRA's which are not truly resolved

Bank needs improvements
Processor (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZMarch 13, 2018
The company is way behind in technology. They are trying to update the companies systems so they can compete. CBSS area, management sucks to high heaven. Lead is difficult to work with. Manager is to soft and does not make the branches fix some of the mistakes they make. People are leaving quickly. Lost five people since I have been here in one year. They left because of management. No advancement on this team. Not a good place for people of color.
Pros
Hours are good
Cons
Time off, pay sucks

Great Place but Chaotic
Manager (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZMarch 6, 2018
A great place to work - lots of good people from different backgrounds. However, lots of chaos - still trying to understand who does what and where, who has authority, and getting people to get a sense of urgency is difficult.

Not a good place for IT or InfoSec people
VP (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZMarch 1, 2018
Perfect storm of chaos, change, infighting, and poor leadership. Serious maturity issues abound. Very painful ride if you choose to board this train.

Upper management not in touch!
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAFebruary 23, 2018
Poor management. Staffing cuts, still same workload. Management has not managed branches with this new staffing model and does not have a clue as to the daily branch environment! Unrealistic goals, reviews and expectations. Hire good people and and hold them accountable for unrealistic sales goals and staff training.
Longtime employees leaving frustrated and worn out.

some nice people but bad management and low morale
Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 15, 2018
People in general are nice and easy to work with, but MUFG is essentially a bank run by a west coast regional retail bank (Union Bank) over a east coast international wholesale bank (BTMU). They don't pay bonus until mid-June.
Pros
free coffee, good benefits
Cons
too many middle management, bad decisions, old technology, low morale of employees

Horrible management
Analyst (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaFebruary 10, 2018
Development opportunities are available.
However, incompetent management creates a hostile environment which drives high turn over. Senior management lacks oversight of junior management.
