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

    Pros

    The bank has a large exposure in Asia and offers career opportunity to a diversified number of regions and countries

    Cons

    For being so concentrated in Asia most part of the senior management sits there and the teams in Americas and Europa are a bit out of the decision process

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - new, state of the art office in Midtown Manhattan

    Cons

    - zero work-life balance, even in non-client facing FCC roles (management has actually instituted a "work-life INTEGRATION" program rather than a balance
    - politics and internal strife
    - senior management out of touch with day to day operations and employee morale

    Advice to Management

    Work-life integration is not something any potential or current employee desires. Treat employees fairly and they will want to succeed.
