I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

Pros

Potential to get better bonus than market, but only if you perform. That's all.

Cons

Management direction is not clear enough. Poor work & personal life balance. Stressful working environment. General impression of management is that they ONLY care about revenue, revenue, revenue, and ignore employees' well being.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

ALL levels of management, not only top management, should try harder to understand employees' frustration, and DO something about it.

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    All over the world, so chance to move around .Superb Corporate & Wholesale Banking Division that is second to none, cash management is quite good too. Probably the bank that is going to huge when Africa takes off one day as they are all over the place there. Private Banking division has rosy future.

    Cons

    Anemic Retail banking division although big and powerful. No trading department, so product trades take ages esp in Wealth Management. Old fashioned managers that take forever to make decisions yet first to bail out to greener pastures when something goes wrong and let the subordinates take the blame. If you are outsourced (e.g SCOPE india )- you are screwed. Takes forever to get a PC and business card.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire smarter not dumber. Listen to the little people- they will be running the show one day.

    Was a decent company, but seems to be sliding each year.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities were great and the bank encourages you to spend time overseas so there can be a lot of travel or short/long term assignments abroad.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't seem to know what the next steps are. There has been a shakeup throughout the bank and I saw lots of good people leave on the back of it who knew the bank well.
