    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Placed well in the strong emerging markets. A warm environment to work in. Good growth opportunities. Well respected brand.

    Cons

    Not the greatest product suite. In house systems still require a lot of integration. Not the best central team as a lot of them don't have experience of working in the markets that the bank operates in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve product suite. Integrate systems. Get more people from the markets.

    Pros

    Good exposure to overall retail banking. Managers give you a good support. Induction and graduation ceremony overseas is definitely an added perk.

    Cons

    After a few years of international graduate program, your career is pretty much set for the Bank's goal, not aligning with my personal interest.

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    People were great to work with, the welfare was extensive. It definitely has more work life balance compared to many of the other banks I've worked at.

    Cons

    Wouldn't really consider it as a first tier bank. Compared to other banks that I've worked at, the pace here is quite slow. I remember the turnaround times for things to get done was quite long- eg: took the IT department 1 month to set up my full access to the systems- can you believe how much time was wasted?

    The people, they're really good to work with and I've learned a lot from the experience

    The HR department is a pain to deal with, I got paid a couple of weeks after leaving the job.

    Hire more people, everyone seems to work over time and have too much on their plate
