I have been working at East West Bancorp full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Solid financial profile and performance for shareholders, lacks many layers of management , China - US bridge banking a mission that sets bank apart from others
.

Cons

Senior leadership lacks caring for employees, little teamwork, much favoritism, and traditional top down way of management. Lack of training programs. Leadership team does not promote positive feedback or communication. Lack of enforcing performance reviews. Cutthroat and pressure on meeting short-term goals. Management makes promises they do not keep to attract employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on improving corporate culture so communication is valued. Engage in seminars so management does not harass employees. Make executives focus less on their profit center. Do 360 reviews of managers. Make good teamwork among regions and product teams a core goal. Study and implement best work practices of American companies.

    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.
