    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Tianjin, Tianjin (China)

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy life and easy work. It's unlike the other Internet company. The amount of work per week is relatively less.

    Cons

    I leave far from the company, so it will cost much time to get to work. Also, many tech used in here is out-dated. It's actually not a good choice for learning.

    Pros

    Training for staff, best bank for staff's benefit in Indonesia, High Salary compared to another, good people & facilities to work

    Cons

    in some case, we got very high demand to work, so we have to work extra.
    the company very selective to hire full-time permanent staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the junior staff chance to take a position and opportunity to go abroad.

  8.  

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Very entreprenurial culture that allows people to take risks and puts them into various rotational assignments that help in the over all development. good compensation

    Cons

    very frequent changes in strategy and changes in org structure that can impact ones work very frequently. lower job security recently with several announcements of lay offs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a steady strategy to attract the right talent. too frequent changes in strategy and approach under the pressure from wall street will lead to a long term negative impact on the organisation

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Internship in the company provided an insight towards how a foreign bank accommodate to stay competitive in the local banking industry. The working culture, skills, networks and understandings that I have learned was truly a fruitful lifetime experience.

    Cons

    The HR or departments put little emphasis on the continuous career pathway of the interns. Instead they should consider to refer those outstanding interns to the HR as they are graduating soon.
