    I worked at SEB AB

    Pros

    Good experience within the retail sector. Learning how retail banking works and bank products to customers. Knowing the standards programs of the company and what kind of department the company had. I would not say that the experience probably would be the same at all main retail banks in Sweden.

    Cons
