    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clear focus on Asia Africa and middle east markets
    Over all product offering and capability is just as good if not better than most top tier banks
    Often compared to HSBC, much smaller bank, but better global capabilities
    Good risk management

    Cons

    Limited presence in the US
    The bank's strategy can get in the way of good business, ie the bank may turn away business that does not have an large international component
    Internal politics can be very active
    Bank has a lower profile in the US

    Was a decent company, but seems to be sliding each year.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities were great and the bank encourages you to spend time overseas so there can be a lot of travel or short/long term assignments abroad.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't seem to know what the next steps are. There has been a shakeup throughout the bank and I saw lots of good people leave on the back of it who knew the bank well.

    Pros

    SCB is focused on emerging markets while maintaining a slight aversion for risk. That configuration led the bank to do extremely well during recent financial crisis.

    Cons

    Too many processes in place. takes a long time to make decisions.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In past, bank valued employees with good banking skills. This has changed. There is an increasing rush to replace employees with others who have experience in businesses the bank does not have the competency to support.

    Cons

    Bank is undergoing a lot of change. Power base is centered in Asia and tends to be ignorant of market dynamics in US.
