    Great people, great environment. I interned at SCB Taipei during the summer after my freshman year in college. I worked at the Group Technology and Operations department and got to meet some wonderful people.

    I did a lot of clerical work and not a lot of problem solving projects.

    Pros

    It is a great institution, new management is going to have a great impact. This bank will be in the top soon. Great people.

    Cons

    It is great place to work, perhaps the integration between SCB and all WS leavers from Lehman created a toxic environment.

    Pros

    good client oriented environment with deep focus on strategy and capital. understanding management that is keen to see you do well. good work-life balance

    Cons

    Americas is not part of the footprint, so operations here will remain small(ish). but place still provides many opportunities for individuals willing to work hard and move up and around (globally)

    Advice to Management

    Provide more local learning opportunities to business staff. salary review should be frequent and rewarding of superior performance should be key.

    Pros

    This is the best place to work. The pay and benefits are great! Your knowledge will grow, as you will be tasked with many projects. Most of all the people are great, very diversified! I miss my "work family".

    Cons

    None really. If you don't like New York city life then this is not the place for you. HQ is in the middle of Times Square.

    Pros

    SCB is focused on emerging markets while maintaining a slight aversion for risk. That configuration led the bank to do extremely well during recent financial crisis.

    Cons

    Too many processes in place. takes a long time to make decisions.
