    Pros

    Very innovative problem-solving mindset by staff members and the intellectual capacity of staff also very high. Good benefits overall

    Cons

    The organisation is very silo-based and thus decisionmaking can take a long time. Consequently the bank can be seen as bureaucratic and in need of a reorganisation

    Advice to Management

    Management should give more attention to grievances and complaints from all levels of the company so as to ensure that fresh ideas get aired regularly and is onboarded

    Good place to start your career in and acquire technical skills. Good work/life balance, and opportunity to prove yourself and evolve in different departmets

    Quite siloed organisation, and poor communication of the Management vision and strategy. The atmosphere is often very "heavy" due to high Regulatory and Cost pressure.
