    Pros

    International purpose and expertise in the worlds growth engines. Excellent and seasoned banker brought in to reposition the group in 2015, and a lot of positive changes implemented. The results from Q4 2016 and into 2017 will start to show the hard work.

    Too internally focused, but a lot of focus is being placed on improving the client experience.

    Advice to Management

    a lot of layoffs have staff quite distracted and worried, targeted retention through clear career paths and visibility would be key.

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time

    Pros

    If you like Emerging Markets, this is the bank given it's history and focus in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

    New York feels like satellite office. Senior leadership and major decisions come from Singapore or London.

    Leadership in NY should have more daily interactions with employees to really get a sense of what is happening on the ground.
