    I worked at Bank of China full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    BUILDING IS NICE. THAT'S ABOUT IT!!

    Cons

    This is the worst place I've ever worked in the course of my career and I have had many many jobs in the past. Bank is did-organized; everything is always the LAST MINUTE. You will get an email today at 4:00pm and expect to respond back at 4:10pm or else you are considered LATE! Always the last minute. They will send out meeting invite today at 4:00pm for tomorrow's meeting at 9:00am. SO UNPROFESSIONAL! This is not the place for American or Chinese who doesn't speak Chinese. YOU NEED TO SPEAK CHINESE IN ORDER TO FIT IN. or else, u are USELESS. Hours are crazy and management never appreciate you and will work you to death! They don't appreciate anything you do, yet you are working your BUTT off. You won't get recognized! everyone is blaming everybody for whatever they do. always blaming and back stabbing one another. BE CAREFUL!!! No promotion and salary sucks!!! too much over time and no appreciation and did-organized and rude and unprofessional. Manager knows NOTHING ABOUT BUSINESS and does not like to make decisions!

    Advice to Management

    increase diversity, increase salary.
