    We are more than numbers in the organisation. We used to stand for something. We used to be HFLR, HFP, HFG.

    Are we still living that?

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    The best reason I worked there is the atmosphere in the office. All staff in the office are equal, and they are very kind to each other.

    Cons

    I have to assist a lot of people and take various tasks. This means that I have to learn a lot of new things quickly, which is very challenging to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff should improve their efficiency of working.
