    Great company with mostly high calibre people.

    Wealth Management (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsGood career development and training opportunities. Great management efforts on staff engagement. Generally good working culture in terms of team collaboration. Excellent company value.

    ConsToo much red tape - too many levels of approval required to drive any change. Laggard in terms of technology capabilities. Too much emphasis on front office, neglecting back office (Operations and IT) resource requirements to adequately support the business. Premium paid for external hires instead of sufficient reward to retain existing talents.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould be great if there's more focus on talent retention, giving more pay raise and promotion opportunities to existing staff who are performing well, instead of hiring consultants and externally at higher costs but less efficiencies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
