    SCB is focused on emerging markets while maintaining a slight aversion for risk. That configuration led the bank to do extremely well during recent financial crisis.

    Cons

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

    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.

    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.
