    My review on Standard Chattered in Uganda

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I got the opportunity to offer financial advise to clients

    Cons

    The pressure to meet monthly deadlines was too much

    Advice to Management

    Please less pressure for the employees to sign up people for loans and instead give your employees tips on how to approach people and convince them to sign up for bank loans. Another key thing that can work is to provide incentives like prizes or cash bonus for employees who exceed or meet their monthly target as opposed to using termination as incentive.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This place offers an opportunity to achieve fair work-life balance. You will likely find people to be nicer than in other shops. They place a strong emphasis on their values and culture.

    Cons

    It is quite a bureaucratic environment. It doesn't offer ample career or growth opportunities. Pretty conservative place as well.

    Advice to Management

    we need to clean up our own backyard: to review our policies and philosophy, to be willing to change our mindset and behavior where necessary, to better listen to our own people.
