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.

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.

Awful workplace. Work elsewhere.

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!

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.

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.

Toxic Environment
Enterprise Information Security (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 9, 2017
MUFG Union Bank is trying to grow rapidly with unqualified, untrained leadership, inefficient processes, and silo mentality. The result is a cesspool of toxicity and frustration that makes it a challenging place to work. Management is unrealistic on expectations - easy place to burnout quickly.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Leadership, in-fighting

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.

Diligent workers hampered by inefficient processes and quagmire like bureaucracy.
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

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.
