    Was a decent company, but seems to be sliding each year.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities were great and the bank encourages you to spend time overseas so there can be a lot of travel or short/long term assignments abroad.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't seem to know what the next steps are. There has been a shakeup throughout the bank and I saw lots of good people leave on the back of it who knew the bank well.

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is the best place to work. The pay and benefits are great! Your knowledge will grow, as you will be tasked with many projects. Most of all the people are great, very diversified! I miss my "work family".

    Cons

    None really. If you don't like New York city life then this is not the place for you. HQ is in the middle of Times Square.

    Pros

    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

    Too many processes in place. takes a long time to make decisions.
