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

    Pros

    Excellent work environment.
    Department management compromises the needs of the individuals and the company.
    Flexible leave request depending on the needs of the department.

    Cons

    Lack of staffing may impact employee morale.
    The company has a lot of initiatives that make it difficult for any one project to gain significant traction.
    Department managers should be further educated on the potential risks certain initiatives may have on the overall company.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend management focus on 2 or 3 significant initiatives.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Central Pacific Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Bank provides credit training needed to excel at local financial institutions
    - Central Pacific Bank is a structured organization (clear responsibilities)
    - Convenient location, corporate offices are located in downtown Honolulu

    Cons

    - Upper-level management does not allow employees to take on added responsibilities even if candidate is willing and able
    - Poor compensation (unlivable wages); management believes in giving away titles as opposed to monetary raises (as "promotions" are free)

    Advice to Management

    Employees feel that upward mobility within Central Pacific Bank is limited. Upper-level management tends to hire external candidates instead of hiring from within.
