    Pros

    People who work there are really nice and helpful. If you do a good job and they like you as a person, you will definitely be well compensated.

    Cons

    People who have been there a long time and complacent are being "let go" and replaced by younger people for half the price.

    I worked at Bank of China

    Pros

    One of the biggest banks in the world. Very fast paced environment and the people are really nice and easy going. The bank is state owned therefore very organized and efficient. Everybody has his or her part of the job.

    Cons

    I interned in the loan office during the summer in Chin. But as an intern you really don't get exposed to too many things other than some repeated work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome

    I cannot say all bank is a mass but at least my department had too much politics, low salary, low quality working environment, short vacation days, they treat local hired people and expatriates very differently. not much to learn.
