Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good pay
Nice art throughout the London office

Cons

Everything is outsourced to India (e.g. IT, HR, Payroll) so be prepared for some of the most frustrating conversations of your life! You have been warned.
Predominantly Asian in approach/culture - it is a British bank in name ONLY
Sprwaling organisation that has too large a global footprint to know what they are doing
Very high turnover in relation to new joiners

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You know what the issues are so why not fix them..?

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is diverse, has a challenging environment. Senior management is very nice and helpful. There are a bunch of opportunities within the bank.

    Cons

    Cannot see the career path clearly. Compensation is not competitive compared to other banks. It's very hard for local people to be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to local staff

    Pros

    Freedom, Slightly better compensation, Lower power distance and a corporate atmosphere

    Cons

    Constrictive management policies mainly regarding the data management and handling within the bank which slows down work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on local workforce in terms of their motivation and satisfaction since the HR is centralized in Karachi only they tend to be ignored at times.
