    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    The best reason I worked there is the atmosphere in the office. All staff in the office are equal, and they are very kind to each other.

    Cons

    I have to assist a lot of people and take various tasks. This means that I have to learn a lot of new things quickly, which is very challenging to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff should improve their efficiency of working.

    Pros

    Clear focus on Asia Africa and middle east markets
    Over all product offering and capability is just as good if not better than most top tier banks
    Often compared to HSBC, much smaller bank, but better global capabilities
    Good risk management

    Cons

    Limited presence in the US
    The bank's strategy can get in the way of good business, ie the bank may turn away business that does not have an large international component
    Internal politics can be very active
    Bank has a lower profile in the US
