    I have been working at Hanmi Financial full-time

    Pros

    Striving to be better, the company has been through a lot of changes. Still need to improve, specially customer service.

    Cons

    Too much politics, no recognition, abusive, inconsistent, micromanaging. You need to "know" somebody in order to advance to higher position.

    Advice to Management

    Please promote employees base on performance and knowledge, not because of who you like. Respect your employees, they are human and have feeling too.

    Pros

    People are really good people

    Always short staffed i.e. not a stable rotation of coming & going so you end up having to take on more work to cover the difference

    I have been working at Hanmi Financial full-time

    Pros

    Health benefits are really good.

    Cons

    No increase on pay. Poor Management. Pay is lower than other banks. Not professional when deciding on times to work.

    Advice to Management

    Do not promote people based on time at the bank. Please focus on how much experience the person has on the related job.

    I have been working at Hanmi Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get the whole experience of handling the entire process of C&I and CRE lending process

    Cons

    People get promoted based on number of years worked rather than performance based. Also, many people don't know how to work "as a team," instead it is all about how I can look superior than others. Furthermore, benefits seem to be getting worse and worse every year.

    I have been working at Hanmi Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have a paid job and vacation days. Some employees are still committed to making this place work. No further pros.

    Cons

    Royally lacking any values, organization, equality, work-life balance, standards, real HR, work perks, happiness, or care for even employees' mental wellness, applies negative reinforcements

    Advice to Management

    Invest, show return in your workforce. While Chiefs and Managers are demanding production, micromanaging and hiring staff who lack experience, are provided newer phones and faster computers, comfortable workspaces, provided better tools upon request, the working employees are denied any of these useful tools, yet pressured to produce more work in fraction of time, short staffed, SOME forced to wear multiple hats, constantly challenged by unequal treatment between genders, age, and race, but afraid to voice opinions because of job stability -- Management is the police and don't ask don't tell is rule of thumb here.
