    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a pleasant working environment. I learnt a lot about wholesale banking. Staffs are professional and nice. Compensation is ok.

    Cons

    Everything seems pretty good. But I only worked at there for almost a year. So I can't say I have a very thorough understanding.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    In past, bank valued employees with good banking skills. This has changed. There is an increasing rush to replace employees with others who have experience in businesses the bank does not have the competency to support.

    Cons

    Bank is undergoing a lot of change. Power base is centered in Asia and tends to be ignorant of market dynamics in US.
