    Pros

    There are some very talented and skilled employees. Bank very clearly sets goals and achieves those. Numbers dictate success - meet your numbers, be rewarded. Many long-term employees very loyal and have benefitted from previous years of stock rewards.

    Cons

    CEO has a talented leadership team but prefers pitting one group against another. This leads to siloing of the oprganization and lack of cross divisional cooperation. Benefits are just okay and salaries for all but the top ranks are not very competitive. Motivation from several managers is done with fear not rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Numbers are vital in banking but don't forget that the work is done by people not numbers.

    Pros

    You may be able to learn a lot of you make an effort to do so. There is a lot of different things to do and not very many qualified persons.

    Cons

    In the long term, unless you have very strong connections with the company, the advancement is extremely limited at best.

    Advice to Management

    The attrition of UCB employees is only one testament of how welcoming EWBC feels for ANY employee. Typical Asian ways of managing people in a ethnically diverse environment is proven to be unsuccessful. This mentality is preventing EWBC from attracting and/or retaining top talent, which in the end leads to mediocre performance of the entire company.
