    I worked at Ambank Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice place to work, friendly colleagues, plenty of learning opportunities + training provided. Some departments can be very laid back, some can be very stressful. Interestingly, seating arrangement can change with each year's feng shui!

    Cons

    Access to email, internet connection & passwords go haywire at times. No comment. The organization is only as good as its people & the leader.

    Advice to Management

    Areas to improve: Be punctual, respond to meeting invites, don't digress from agenda during meetings, take turns to listen and talk instead of drowning out one another
