    Avoid working at this bank in the East Coast

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat coworkers and if you're a workaholic you'll love it here

    ConsPromotions, HQ being in LA (Human Resources don't care about the people that aren't located in HQ!!! They ignore the people on the East Coast!!!)

    Advice to Senior ManagementStick to your words. If you promise something to the employee, please do it. This is why no one likes you because you go behind what you say and stop boasting yourself in front of us cause we don't care.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood coworkers, bonus if profitable, good insurance

    ConsPoor management, poor working conditions, you put 100% but there's no return. Strong Korean culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees before they start leaving. High turn over rate is due to management that does not realize what they have until its gone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
