    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great culture, collaborative, everyone takes a team approach and is respectful of one another in Talent Acquisition, America. The Head of the TA team is very supportive, patient, and realistic regarding deadlines and goals to be met. He is very hands-on and open with his lines of communication and direction. the TA group thinks like "true" business partners to the business lines we supported not HR drones kept in the dark. I give a thumbs up to working with this team.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities outside of Newark, NJ - which is a very undesirable working environment and unsafe location. The open work space concept can be very distracting which causes a disconnect due to people then searching for a quite place to work or from home.

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Work in a very dynamic environment and can always experience new things. Very exciting in the financial industry. Very organized and friendly people.

    Cons

    Sometimes you need to push more to get the job done. This is a common thing in a large company I guess. Too many people below you and above you.
