    I have been working at First Commercial Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Good people higher up, not a ton of talent at the bottom, but that's expected anywhere. Fair opportunity to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Only cons are part of the job itself, nothing that reflects on management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, never lose sight of the integrity.

    I worked at First Commercial Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very stable, no brain needed

    Cons

    Always follow instruction from supervisor even they are wrong. Work there for one year and wondering if I will become as stupid as they are.

    Advice to Management

    Please understand US law and regulation. Sometimes what you guys did and instruction from head office doesn't work here.

    Pros

    FCB communicates well with their employees and is fair with how things are handled.

    Cons

    It feels more like a country club than a financial institution. It tends to be more about being from Mt. Brook than hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on really making a name for the bank in the financial world. Managers need to work harder to keep the bank competitive.

    I worked at First Commercial Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn cross department functions. You can rotate through all the functions whenever a colleague resigns. The bank never fires anyone.

    Cons

    No promotion for local Singaporeans. All comfy positions reserved for Taiwanese. Low pay. Long working hours due to having to take over all the work of colleagues who resign. Management has zero knowledge on how to do anything as they leave in 1 or 2 years. No guidance. No expat wants to learn local Regulations as Singapore is just a stopover. When you do something wrong, even with Management's blessings, you get full blame. Management is faultless.

    Advice to Management

    Over conservative and overly risk averse central decision making means this bank will never be able to take any opportunities in the bond markets or the loan markets. Bank never makes any money and as such bonuses are low. Salary is pathetic. Pay stuff more.

    I worked at First Commercial Bank full-time

    Pros

    Pay is little higher than the average (in Taiwan). Stable and don't be afraid of lay-off.

    Cons

    Strict hierarchy. Little room for personal opinion. Dull and boring environment, kinda like working in public service. More and more pressure from credit card/fund/currency targets, but acceptable though. Your superior can decide your life in heaven or in hell. Many redundant paper work.

    Advice to Management

    More room for personal voice. Need improvement on product competition rather than just set the target.
