    Great place to work at. The bank values employees and encourage development

    Middle Office Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSCB 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.

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

    credit analyst

    Credit Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

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

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

    Terrific place to work

    Associate Director (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat people at work and at play - numerous ocassions to interact at work as well as socialize outside of the job. Concertered effort to train and offer support when required.

    ConsInternal information technology is under staffed or not prompt to reply or to fix isses especially in the most critical time of the month when deadlines need to be met

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore of an attempt should be made to encourage/train or direct personnel who are in the middle of their careers....a lot of emphasis is on either new graduates or candidates with twenty plus years of service

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
