I worked at Cathay General Bancorp full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The bank provides a nice worklife balance, and I genuinely liked the people that I worked with. A lot of them are motivated, sharp, and down to earth.

Cons

Conflict management is an issue and it makes it difficult to get things done. Middle management and tenured employees will often say what yo uwant to hear but stick with the status quo. There needs to be more healthy conflict to spur change.

Advice to Management

Management needs to have more of a presence and lend its weight to important issues. Stand behind some causes and be more visible.
