    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, unit is expanding. Room for growth, a lot of opportunities for profession development. International postings and transfers available.

    Cons

    Not a lot bad to say, very busy due to regulators. Lots of cases, hours can be long. Overall very minor complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing well, FCC is growing fast and people are working hard. Management understands they have to be realistic about the workload and quality is most important.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Client oriented and flexible to needs of clients. Supportive in changing roles and geographies.

    Cons

    Very political and competitive. US is off-strategy for the bank so little chance for progression. Colleagues are very detached and not interested in friendship.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on US and provide opportunity for US employees. Cut down on vested interest and let real performers shine.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a great institution, new management is going to have a great impact. This bank will be in the top soon. Great people.

    Cons

    It is great place to work, perhaps the integration between SCB and all WS leavers from Lehman created a toxic environment.

    Pros

    good client oriented environment with deep focus on strategy and capital. understanding management that is keen to see you do well. good work-life balance

    Cons

    Americas is not part of the footprint, so operations here will remain small(ish). but place still provides many opportunities for individuals willing to work hard and move up and around (globally)

    Advice to Management

    Provide more local learning opportunities to business staff. salary review should be frequent and rewarding of superior performance should be key.
