Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Its an organization that is still trying to rediscover its old rich self amid young and energetic competition. One of the best employees training system, but the HR team are far from the employees.

Great staff, difficult members of management staff.

My line manager was a kind and understanding person. Targets weren't outrageous compared to other Banks in Nigeria but I would say pandemic really changed the work style and some line managers didn't help by making it stricter. Overall I had wonderful colleagues but honestly work morale is low.

Pros

Monthly training via E-learning platforms.

Cons

Long hours, inadequate access to work tools.

Productive

Union Bank is one that has created a very good and lasting legacy in Nigeria, but in the recent times a lot of things has evolved and it took the bank sometimes to adapt to the new technologies that has been introduced in the banking system which has impacted in their productivity in terms of business wise but lately they knew that it’s no longer business as usual and finally they embraced the new technology and also rebranding which gave their customers a new sense of beginning and gradually business starts moving to a better conclusion.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

Healthcare issues

A good place to work with great benefits

A good place to work with great benefits like education allowance paid in August. However if you are keen about your career development you need to be very alert to opportunities outside the bank early enough. There is high risk of stagnation as promotion is haphazard.

Pros

One of the best pay in the industry, education allowance paid in August

Cons

No overtime payment despite having to work long hours. High risk of stagnation.

Competitive

Working at union bank has been an eye opener, especially as a contract staff, you get to work real hard to meet up targets achieve Goals which clearly surpass your take home salary, you get to work 3 times as hard as what you earn, no benefits attached aside from salary and HMO, very competitive environment.

Excellence place to work and learn except for the unhealthy politics that tends not to favour hardworkers

A typical day starts strong, fierce with everyone mindin their business.This gradually fizzles out by noon and the atmosphere is mere relaxed. A second phase of work commences after launch and people work till late

Pros

subsidized launch

Cons

unhealthy rivalry and politics

Not bad

It’s not really a bad place to work, if there was job security. So as there is no job security you mind can’t be at rest because anything can happen and you are logged out of the system

Pros

A beautiful place with beautiful systems

Cons

Staffs are dispensable

My stay in Union Bank

I would like to use to medium to say working for organisations like banks in Nigeria can be a bit of challenging and ridiculous because you get paid less than the work you do. As an entry-level staff you get to do all the work while you supervisor does nothing and you get blamed for the work if not done properly or the supervisor get praised for the work if done properly. All in all I had my fair share of it

Union Bank is good

Union Bank is good place to work. They are average in terms of remuneration compared to their industry. They have a good culture and respect for employees. The company was in transition at the time I joined them, but still it was a nice experience working with the company.
