    Fine place to gain experience in working and communication.

    Executive (Current Employee) Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

    ProsBest benefits in total remuneration offered so far. Provide wide range of jobscope and opportunity to gain knowledge through experience and training.

    ConsSeniors and old-timers tend to do their own way and speak their own mind which contribute to obstacle to your own work and promotion. Too policy oriented.

    Retail Banking - RM role

    RM Role (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    Prosgood starting platform to learn the ropes if you're a fresh graduate. a lot of hands-on as a Relationship Manager. Depending the level of experience you have, you can come in as Financial executive, Wealth Manager, or Premier Wealth Manager.

    Low turnover of staff

    ConsSlow to changes and slow to respond - i get exasperated working with their "speed" at times. sometimes you feel like they do not handle things with urgency... like a very laid-back culture.
    some departments cannot be bothered about the big picture and are isolated and like to play Tai-Chi sometimes by shirking responsibility. Low turnover of staff - usually means if your boss is staying put, there is little opportunity for you to be promoted too. Also, the ex-CEO, Polly Sim, does not retrench people so people might be too comfortable and not moving or growing fast enough.

    Good for stability and poor for those who are ambitious.

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsSlack, good for retirement. A great place to relax and chill. If you just want to get a stable income without stress or doing much work, this is the best place. Be good at socialising and talking, actual talent is not required.

    ConsLimited resources, close-minded, conservative, no actions, no concrete plans, no vision, poor execution, poor productivity. Poor talent management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting the wrong people into mid management. Talk less, do more. Trust the right people. Groom people with real talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management have to learn to implement the 'Open Door Policy'.

    Close-knit environment, good performance evaluation

    Executive (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    Prosgood performance bonus, robust and unbiased performance evaluation, the staff there are generally supportive of the company and will try to use the products and services as much as possible

    Constop management may still work in archaic ways and always try to be overly-cautious. Top management may want to use their own views on certain procedures

    Advice to Senior Managementbe more willing to take risks, and be open to new ideas.

    Used to be a great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people at the working level. People was focused on delivering.
    Old timers who are comfortable and slacking give opportunity for good people to shine.
    Management can be flexible with movement within the teams/departments.
    Great benefits.

    ConsProcesses done manually are becoming too cumbersome.
    Good people are leaving.
    Too many slackers around makes the good people work harder than needed. Lopsided workload among teams.
    Management is haphazard fighting fires instead of spending more time planning and organizing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider refining internal processes that don't have anything to show to customers. You cannot build a skyscraper without good foundations.
