    Favoritism out of control

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits and some co-workers are the only things I miss.

    ConsFavortism by management and executives choosing to do nothing about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the areas where employees are choosing to leave in unusually high numbers and ask why. Then do something about it. Many highly skilled and dedicated employees are unhappy and will leave if they find the right opportunity. Some may leave for ANY opportunity. The speeches and trainings do not match the actions of some of your managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Staff Relations

    Market Analyst (Former Employee) Honolulu, HI

    ProsPersonal time off is valuable for doctor, dentist, or personal errands that cannot wait till the weekend. There are exercise classes and you can order a package of very good vegtables ahead of time and it is dropped off at work.

    ConsThere is no emploiyee cafeteria, only some vending machines with soda or snacks. The administrative and support staff are located in different building in differnt areas of Honolulu.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a central location for admistrative and support staff to provide good service to both employees and customers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The bank is relatively small compared to U.S. mainland banks, but is a great place to work.

    Summer Intern - Commercial Banking (Former Employee) Honolulu, HI

    ProsThe people. The people at this bank are hard working and are great to be around. The upper management does not see their employees as just workhorses. They make significant contributions to the bank's future.

    ConsThe closed banking system of Hawaii might not be the best start for a banker. Although if one should want to stay in Hawaii, this would not be a bad start.
