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

    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 for less than a 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.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Internal 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 ManagementAdvice

    More 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
