    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.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment where hard work is recognised. It was simple to approach employees in different departments to know more about what they do on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    Experienced first hand that bureaucracy does affect the work ethics of employees. Lengthy processes that could otherwise be shortened dissuade employees to take on more responsibility.
