    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn about wholesale lending Small office allows for interaction with upper management as well as colleagues Standard 9-5 working hours

    Cons

    Due to OCBC's small presence in the U.S, Career advancement is limited Sometimes there isn't much to do as an intern. Would definitely need to stay longer to get a better grasp in the whole lending cycle

    Advice to Management

    Monthly luncheons are great, but try to make them more interactive. Definitely need own HR and IT department in the U.S. As an intern, had many IT issues.

    Pros

    Easier to get business as the bank is still expanding in their wealth sales team. Lesser competition than other local banks. Achievable targets.

    Cons

    The amount of paper work that has to be done is simply too much. Sometimes we are asked to do jobs that's not in our jobscope because we are short handed.
