    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to drive change and make improvements in all directions. Some good people, but indecisive leadership who constantly re-org to dodge the tough calls.

    Cons

    Desperately needs to make significant staffing changes. Nepotism is everywhere, with no one driving an overdue correction through demonstrated terminations.

    Advice to Management

    Culture in Chennai is toxic and killing the bank

    Pros

    I enjoy great work life balance. the office location is right in the heart of the City of London. It helps a lot that we are able to work from home regularly. they offer a really competitive benefits package

    Cons

    politics and bureaucracy are worse than in a much bigger bank that I worked for. trying to implement any changes/process improvements just takes ages.
