It's a nice place to coast along and retire but if you are at the growth stage, please don't stay too long

I have been working at Ocbc Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good work life balance, can take quite a lot of leave

Cons

too conservative working culture with risk taking appetite sometimes veering towards "maximising safety at all costs", lack of trust among divisions and departments and hard to get things done even at the subordinate level unless management steps in, lack of transparency in certain matters relating to promotion, a high sense of "cover your own ass" culture

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ocbc Bank full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    good working location. You'll be able to survive if you don't mind playing office politics.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, dept people are not that friendly and helpful. When they need your help, they'll be nice to you. But when you need help from them, they'll tell you "all the while is like that" or act busy, not helpful at all. Long waiting time for getting access and you totally have no idea who you can contact. They'll tell you since you've fax your request over, then wait for their email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time evaluating your staff. If there is high turnover rate for certain role, it's obviously something's wrong with the dept people.

    I worked at Ocbc Bank as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was attached to a supervisor who was really approachable and always asking about my opinion on things. The workload was manageable and challenging, but not undoable.

    Cons

    There was another intern there that everyone had problems with... other than that no big issues.
