    I have been working at Bank of China - New York full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Depending on the department, you'll have a good work life balance. There is also a lot of job security, so it's the perfect place to coast until retirement. Benefits are pretty decent as you get fully compensated for public transit and low out of pocket costs for health insurance.

    Cons

    There is a failure to take ownership of problems and there is an attempt to push them to others. This ranges from an individual to individual basis to a department to department basis. There is a lack of growth at this bank. Promotions seem to be, for the most part, based on leverage and connections, not merit. A lot of senior managers have been at the bank for many years, and some of them are extremely resistant to change for the better.

    I have been working at Bank of China - New York full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefit package is OK. My team is nice and my boss is one of the best department head in this company(maybe because she's local employee)..Free dinner after 7 PM. Can learn a lot from my current position..

    Cons

    Second lines don't want to take any responsibility. HR act like the king...most department heads that assigned from China just want to do their times and get promoted here and go back to China..BTW, one of the best deputy department head's daily job is to watering flowers and grass in the building... HE IS THE BEST..

    No. Like a hell. Benefit is fair. The building is nice

    Cons

    Culture, work people to death. HRD didn’t do their work. Old school. People hate each other and stab others at their back. Departments blame each other rather than corporate. Violate laws and regulations. Very risky.
