    Current Employee - Director in Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros

    Worked in five different roles/offices in 8 years with the bank. Worked with international colleagues across Asia, Africa and Middle East. Fantastic opportunities to move into different roles and gained experiences in project management, facilitation of discussions, managing business relationship, development of influencing and communications skills. Opportunities to interact with senior business leaders and participate in decision making process once you have proven with your skills and attitudes

    Cons

    Retrenchment is unavoidable in banking industry and more so now for the past 2 years. You have to watch your back tightly and check if your job is secured from time to time. You do not want to be catch unprepared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cost management s important to the P and L of the company. However, it may be difficult to spot the real talent who really contribute positively, worth their salary and stay in the bank. management need to be more discern on who to let go rather than letting go blindly and basing the reason solely on manpower cost.

    Former Employee - Junior Manager in Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros

    Open culture and very good staff benefit. Encourages growth.

    Cons

    Nice gesture to keep those who worked for a long time around however it give the impression to the junior staff that they may not be given the opportunity due to some long timers holding on to their same position for a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the open culture and policies. Get it touch with the junior people on the ground to get a deep understanding on the morale or challenges they are facing.
