I have been working at Cathay General Bancorp full-time

Pros

Great Culture and great office (if you work at the headquarter in El Monte).
Good place to work if you are a Chinese speaker.

Cons

Seniority tend to be overvalued. Top performers are not recognized and rewarded soon enough.
Employee evaluations are often expedited by busy supervisors and are not accurate.
Because of its aging community, coworkers are usually not open to change. Most of us still have office 2003 installed on our desktop. Training is unorganized but satisfactory.

    I have been working at Cathay General Bancorp part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not much of a ladder to climb. Almost no exit opportunities or in house growth opportunities to speak of.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in El Monte, CA

    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 ManagementAdvice

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