    Great work life balance but not too much upward mobility.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe office culture is very friendly. Most people have been with the bank for many years and know what they are doing. The human resources department is very nice and willing to work with employees to make sure that the best possible outcome occurs. Hours are pretty standard without too much overtime.

    ConsBecause people are with the bank for a long time, there are not many positions open for career advancement. In addition, people are not too willing to try new things if the way it's always worked before has been ok.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Relaxed with a family feel

    Bank Teller (Current Employee) Brooklyn, NY

    ProsEveryone is really helpful. The work itself is pretty easy, although as a teller i cannot comment on other facets of the bank.

    ConsNot much of a ladder to climb. Almost no exit opportunities or in house growth opportunities to speak of.

    It was a good learning experience

    Operations Assistant (Former Employee) Rosemead, CA

    ProsGot a basis on how a bank works on the operation level. Got a good understanding of different programs that banks use.

    ConsIf you don't speak Chinese its hard to get promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more programs for entry level employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great learning environment and valuable experience

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsResponsibilities that have an impact on the company
    Senior management is supportive when an individual is self-driven
    Hands-on tasks give interns a lot of experience and knowledge of the banking industry

    ConsSometimes response from co-workers was slow, so an intern is not able to get their work done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuild an efficient workflow process for documentation. Develop better ways to electronically store large batches of documents (loan files).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
