    Pros

    This company offers great benefits that start on your first day of work that include health benefits, good amount of paid time off, sick & personal days, 401k, and the works.

    There is no micromanagement here with supportive managers whom are very interested in your potential and growth within the company. They are able to recognize what you are able to do and are there to help you do it. They constantly ask what they can do to help you grow, which areas/departments you would like to move to and what they can do better so you can be happier with your job. This company is a great place to gain experience and knowledge in your desired field. The managers and staff are always willing to share and teach you.

    I read the previous reviews and have a slight understanding of the work environment previously. However, I do not see any of those negative aspects of the company now. Human Resources is always easily reachable and the company as a whole are quick to recognize those that do not positively contribute to the company in any way and will make changes when necessary. This company is definitely working hard to continue in making changes in all aspects to ensure that all laws and regulations are being met. With anything, it does take time, but the outlook here is very positive.

    .

    Cons

    Due to the many changes they have implemented or want to implement, sometimes there is lack of clear and concise direction and communication among the managers to hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management do need to continue to improve communication with their staff by planning ahead and providing clear direction to ensure that duties and/or projects may be completed correctly the first time around. Although this never occurs in dire situations, it can be a bit frustrating.

    I worked at CTBC Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience to learn about the banking functions, Jump right into work. A lot of higher level tasks expected out of lower level employees so job experience is given quickly. Learn about Asian style banking. Health benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Not all Managers are definitely not properly trained by HR in proper treatment of employees. HR does not manage employees (or train them properly in harassment, fair treatment or employees) correctly thus there are definitely a lot of unethical issues being swept under the rug. HR will selectively pick out employees and some managers reign free. There is s lot of personal relationships between employees that cause a lot of politics in terms of getting work done with various people across departments. The work mentality at this company is Work is your life. There is often a sense that taking time off should only be for Family reasons only and or emergencies only. Noticed non-exempt level positions being labeled as exempt positions is really wrong and messed up. Compensation is definitely not at the standard US standards at all. If anything they are using the lowest amount as mid range. There is little to no recognition of employees who have stayed long-term with the company. Stressful work environment. No 401k matching. Full time is not a 40 hour work week here, it's actually less than that, so nonexempt employees should consider that in terms of yearly salary here.

    Advice to Management

    Running a company and the employees by these standards it is currently in in the US is very unethical. If proper compensation were given to employees, I am sure that the work quality of people would be better. A lot of issues are problems fixed after the fact. Rather, why not invest more in better training , if not live training for employees and therefore prevent a lot of issues from happening. I'm surprised the people within the bank not realize they're not matching industry's standards. I think if they dispersed better pay and work training environments to their lower masses this company could prosper
