    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company treats its employees well and the employees were all comfortably compensated in both monetary and health benefits. The employees were always treated fairly.

    Cons

    The technology was behind its contemporaries. The technology of other banks was light-years ahead. The processes were also outdated and were due for a review.

    Pros

    Quality of people - the Bank hired good people, at least in the past.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Location is a definite plus with one office in Newark and one office in NYC. Some flexibility in schedule depending on who you work for.

    Cons

    Same greediness like every other corporation. Pile on the work but unwilling to recognize you or compensate you for it.

    Advice to Management

    At the very least give ppl the COLA annually-it's not much, at most it's 3-4% but the optics of it is much better than not giving anyone anything at all.
