    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at OCBC Securities full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Casual and flexible work environment

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to carry out projects as there is absolutely no coordination, cooperation, or collaboration between departments. Firstly inter-departmental understanding is minimal, everyone keeps to themselves and dont know what others are doing, secondly they have no interest to find out more, and thirdly most staff are unwillingly to work with other departments as it means having to do more work than their... usual workload and every department is understaffed, and respective HODs themselves also have the same mentality so they also do not make their staff pick up the responsibilities so basically nothing gets done.
