I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank

Pros

Extreme flexibility Work from Home practice in some departments (min 2 days at home). Unaudited business travels. Flexibility to consume unused business air ticket for personal trip and offset from official Travel & Expense Claim. So flexible! Know me, Focus me, Care for me, Inspire me (KFCi) - just make sure you apply this to your boss, double promo within the year would be a guaranteed! Lead by Example - do what your boss do, spot award will be yours in no time! If u can 'perform' these with clear heart to deceive your good value practice, these are the best reasons to work in SCB.

Cons

One with good virtues, believe in doing the right thing and strong believer of Here for Good, SCB culture is way to far to achieve that. There is no real Owner in such Organisation - senior management are also employees who get paid every month (I mean fat pay), directors and share holders get pay fatty fats when cost is lowered! So how many would care for the Organisation which is made up of Workers in majority? Annual pay increment only effects in April for good effort put in the previous year - what happen to Jan, Feb and Mar - who cares that builds into the revenue!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership is from the heart. Sincerity can be felt if one has a heart of a human. To the Workers money is important to sustain the family; To most of the Management money is wealth, status, superior, power and in turn can't afford to loose - so what do they do? Cause and Effect law which only those with wisdom truly understand and practice.

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    less politics
    less bureaucracy
    genuinely friendly people
    extremely culturally aware
    committed to the community and bettering the general well being of the world

    Cons

    foward planning of the most important asset - people, is often lacking for all but the few that are "fast tracked", no structured development plan or stretch despite it being emphasised as a core objective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, have a structured, specific and tailored development plan for staff at all levels with accountability and committment to staff. It will add significantly to the feeling of loyalty and value to the staff member.

    Pros

    Show flexibility in timings.Very understanding considerate towards employee personal needs.

    Cons

    Top managemnt do not communicate decisions and startey with staff.There is a clear wall between middle and senior management.Very polotical.One need to know the right person in the bank to get things done. Cannot get things done on work related issues by approaching officially or formally .No corelation between effort and rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share decisions and rationale behind them with your staff.Recognise people at the RIGHT TIME.
