    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is the best place to work. The pay and benefits are great! Your knowledge will grow, as you will be tasked with many projects. Most of all the people are great, very diversified! I miss my "work family".

    Cons

    None really. If you don't like New York city life then this is not the place for you. HQ is in the middle of Times Square.

    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 worked at Standard Chartered Bank as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's a pleasant working environment. I learnt a lot about wholesale banking. Staffs are professional and nice. Compensation is ok.

    Cons

    Everything seems pretty good. But I only worked at there for almost a year. So I can't say I have a very thorough understanding.
