I have been working at DBS Bank full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Safe local bank to work.
- good work life balance.

Cons

- compensation is not good compared to other MNCs.
- For new joiners its a struggle to learn as no documents are available or not shared by seniors.
- No training given to new joiners and is expected to learn everything themselves.
- Processes are not properly defined which makes things very difficult to achieve. Takes a very long time chasing/following up people to deliver the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Please define the processes clearly for everyone. Performance management is not made clear to employees.
- Compensation can be better.

    Budget needed for System Enhancement

    I have been working at DBS Bank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Family-like culture.
    - Friendly environment.
    - Financially stable and strong.
    - Employee shares scheme.

    Cons

    - Needs to allocation more budget for system enhancement. Staff are doing many work-a-around manually due to system limitations. We were told our department budget for system enhancement in 2013 is $0.00. So demoralized and lost motivation to enhance anymore manual processes..
    - Many staff (including both lower ranking staff and senior managers) are seasoned employees, hence might be too comfortable to challenge status quo processes.
    - Too many layers of bosses to clear when it comes to reporting figures or decision making, when bosses have different direction, decisions made at lower level will be overwritten without being considered much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please put in effort to enhance your system. Manual processes are prone to human error and is time-consuming (a waste of resources)
