      I have been working at Hong Leong Bank full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - Salary slight above average for new hire. - New management team, ambitious to excel and to achieve digital banking. - Willing to invest in training (depend to your line manager) - helping culture at lower ground level. Senior or peer will cover mistake for each and other (not sure is pros or cons?). - Paradise for those who want to retire. - Work life balance

      Cons

      - Rigid. Not encourage innovation. - Slow culture. Not recommend for fresh graduate. - Need improvement in most processes... e.g Loan, HR, etc - Poor internal procedure, process. Old working style and oculture. Most of the staffs here are senior staffs... they have been working here for more than 10 years - 30 years! - Culture here not encourage changes, they prefer work in low profile, managers find way to reduce...

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Hong Leong Bank full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      1. Salary is above average in industry 2. Low experience requirement, as long as proven sales track record. Can be young candidate ie 25 yrs old Branch Manager 3. Salary paid on time

      Cons

      1. Every month will have monthly sales meeting, ragging you on sales targets. Sometimes the top management will join in (adds on pressure). This session lasts from 9am to 6pm the least; some teams can stay up to 10pm. Depending on which sub team you belong. 2. Weekly telcon with management who segregates you into two groups, performers vs non-performers. Every manager works hard at sales numbers to avoid being in latter...

      Advice to Management

      1. Looking forward to see how management will adjust work culture to manage the growing gen Y and gen Z flooding the workforce. 2. Product like Mach to target gen y and gen z but work culture like baby boomer days (with baby boomer top managers) is real turnoff as customer. 3. I believe the right top management team can turn HLB around; look at the success of HLA, young product, aggressive, less rules, young leaders.
