    I have been working at UOB Kay Hian full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great for fresh graduates, learning curve and pace is slow, the mentors are patient and kind. Great stepping stone to greater heights (at other companies). Good work life balance (which may not be the case in the future, seeing how management cut headcount).

    Cons

    Poor salary progression, other companies can pay upwards of SGD700 compared to same position here. Trading representatives (TRs) are aged, self entitled, semi retired and lazy . As a backroom staff, prepare for hellish days where TRs expect you to do and follow their every whim. Expect to drop your work at a moment's notice for you to attend to them and their clients. Management also does not take a active role in... ongoing projects, however, they do know how to take an active approach to scrutinize departments, in order to reduce headcount to save cost.

    Advice to Management

    Push your sales personnel harder. Stop sheltering them. Stop pushing for new, unprofitable products (did you even scrutinize them before giving the greenlight?). If you want your company to prosper and make shareholders happy, do something about it.

    I worked at UOB Kay Hian full-time

    Pros

    Good working hours, long lunch break, not encouraged to do overtime due to company budget constraint.

    Cons

    Workload tends to be arrowed around, those who are well-versed in more areas of work get to harness more work. Safehaven for workers who are in favour of snacking.

    Advice to Management

    System automation is only possible with the right budget put into the projects. Budget constraint should not equate to more tedious work processes.
