    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank (More than a year)

    Pros

    The tech outpost in SF was great under the previous leadership. But shakeups at the bank led to shakeups there, and it all changed. Now, they're focused on Asia, and putting more into the Singapore outpost.

    Cons

    The new manager was incredibly rude and unprofessional towards the employees--it was a shocking display. I left in disgust at that point.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with basic decency and respect. It goes a long way.

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

    Pros

    Working time was flexible, as long as you finished your job. Busy, but not too much pressure. The manager was great and easygoing.

    Cons

    Most of the time it was very busy. The overtime was about 10-20 hours extra per week. It was hard to request one day off.

    Advice to Management

    The overall intern experience was excellent. Given the experience I gain, the low intern salary could be accepable.
