I worked at Standard Chartered Bank as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Good exposure to wholesale banking projects. Colleagues are willing to share knowledge and each of us bring our previous project experience to make things work better. Good work life balance. Bosses do not mico manage

Cons

However, there are certain departments that have more members of certain race. Thus, there will be some minority that will be outcast. And appraisals are done by only one manager and not 360 degree by peers or other managers. Thus, the review could be skewd or not as fair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To have real cultural diversity in each and every team, not just overall as a bank. Performance appraial to be fair, probably via 360 degree feedback.

    Pros

    This is a place when there are no limits for learnings, cultural exposures and career advancements when you put your mind towards performance.

    Cons

    Autocracy in the workplace leading to rise of office politics. The challenge of working around this situation drains the drive people have for work. Of course, this may not be the scenario right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to empower employees and minimise autocratic department heads
