    Pros

    One of the best places I ever worked for. Great people, great environment, great career path, they support great causes especially seeing is believing..

    Cons

    Sometimes it can get very busy and long hours are required. However, the work life balance can easily be maintned if time is well managed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, the bank is shining again under the wings of Bill Winters. Keep the focus on your employees as they have proven to be the biggest asset of this bank.

    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 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company was good 5 years ago, but has since declined.

    Cons

    Poor leadership team in the Americas region; Toxic culture/environment/management; SCB does NOT promote talent, but rather promotes those individuals who feed into the leadership politics. If you do your job, you can expect to stay status quo. If you do your job REALLY well, you def will never leave your current role; the talk about Culture and Values is done because "they need to do it". There are no values with SCB.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the remaining leadership team, as those that haven't left on their own, know they wouldn't be able to find another similar role that puts up with their nonsense
