I have been working at Public Bank full-time
Remuneration package among the best in the industry. Average 5 months bonus. Annual increment is very decent. Attractive staff rates for housing and car loan. Work life balance is acceptable depending on which department you work at and the boss you work for. Staff dismissal is rare and unheard of except in extreme cases. Great place to work to raise a family and retire. Company prefers to hire fresh graduates than outsiders. Career progression is steady, even predictable up to a certain level.
Conservative culture. Company is run like a school. Management rarely listens to staff feedback. Take-it-or-leave it. Obedience, flattery and hard work is the key to success in this company. Staff not encouraged to speak up. If you want exposure and stimulation, this is the last place to consider.
Advice to Management
Company culture should keep up with the times. Old methods of administration is a thing of the past.

Applied online and got a phone call from HR discussing about my application for the programme. Then an invitation for an interview. Interview with two HR personnel. However I had to wait an hour or so for my turn. It requires you to know exactly what role/department/job function you want to be put in. It doesn't allow for job rotation/diversity.
