I have been working at East West Bancorp full-time

Pros

Good at managing risks and bottomline.

Cons

Management lacks strategic vision. Growth is by mainly acquisitions and expense control. Focuses on the petty and short term and does not invest in the long term technology, etc. Not willing to pay for expertise and talent, resulting in mediocre employees throughout the middle management and lower ranks.

Employees (even at high levels) are not trusted to make the right decisions so they have little loyalty and high turnover. No transparency and little communication from top to bottom as well as among departments (a bunch of silos).

Customers and employees are not the company's highest priorities.

Disapproves of CEO
