A good place to start your career

Credit Analyst (Current Employee)
Beijing, Beijing (China)

I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of trainings opportunities. The International Graduates program is good for new graduates as it offers not only comprehensive trainings but also almost unlimited job openings when you are deployed. As the bank is grounded in Asia, Africa, and Middle-East, you will have cross-country exposure such as collaborating with international colleagues and rotations in another country. It is also possible to move internally to other countries if you are capable and well-connected.

ConsThe system and procedures are ever changing, which results in unnecessary inefficiency sometimes. The working hours could be long once in a while, but is honestly very acceptable compared to many other banks.

Intern - Product Management

Intern (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Standard Chartered Bank as an intern for less than a year

ProsTeam is really great and friendly.
Focus on really fast growing Asian and African markets.
Opportunity to review progress and assess the impact in different countries.

ConsInternship program could use more structure. Some of the tech locations have a really long commute if you do not own car. Other perks such a food/housing could be more substantial.

Advice to Senior ManagementHaving more interns and better structured program might be better to get more out your interns as well help them more.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
