    Pros

    The onboarding process of PMO interns is very hands-on from all levels of management. I enjoyed how welcoming and collaborative the entire PMO office was and liked that management routinely provided performance feedback.

    Cons

    Work load fluctuates as a PMO intern so there were a handful of times where I didn't have anything to work on.

    "Fraud Investigator"

    I worked at Bank of Hawaii full-time

    Pros

    The parking was cheaper than most jobs in town

    Cons

    Huge turn over rate in the department, had more than 8 hours of work everyday that had to be done before you could leave. They pay salary so that you don’t collect on over time. Most days were 9 hours or more.

    I worked at Bank of Hawaii full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The cons have overshadowed the pros.

    Cons

    Since the CIO started, IT has gone downhill. Multiple resignations due to the hostile work environment. Their answer? Make us take a class on how to communicate. Did it work for the CIO? No, she just avoids everyone until of course she decides to berate you publicly for something she assumes you did wrong. Obviously either she didn’t take the class or she wasn’t paying attention.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone knows what/who the problem is, and until that is fixed, people will continue to leave. It also feels like HR either doesn’t want to do anything or can’t do anything.

    I worked at Bank of Hawaii part-time

    Pros

    Great learning experience for a young adult

    Cons

    Easy to see the reasons why everyone who works at BOH is so miserable...low salary, no appreciation for long time employees, office politics heavily affect individuals opportunities (all about who you are and who you know), pretentious management attitudes diluting every inch of the bank, no fun...

    Advice to Management

    Employees are key to success, so better start paying attention to employee needs and moral.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, potential to grow. Company is bigger then just being isolated at a branch.

    Cons

    Management needs to lead by example. In every aspect.

    Advice to Management

    If the entire team is unhappy, look to the leadership. Something is wrong there.
