    Former Contractor - Analyst in Singapore (Singapore)

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

    Pros

    People were great to work with, the welfare was extensive. It definitely has more work life balance compared to many of the other banks I've worked at.

    Cons

    Wouldn't really consider it as a first tier bank. Compared to other banks that I've worked at, the pace here is quite slow. I remember the turnaround times for things to get done was quite long- eg: took the IT department 1 month to set up my full access to the systems- can you believe how much time was wasted?

    product basket is limited to its clientele hence providing less while it can do better for the local market

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The bank has a very well defined strategy and differentiated market positioning (focusing on developing markets). It also seems to recognise strong talent and be willing to move it into different positions to offer attractive career prospects.

    Cons

    As an organisation with a more commercial bank heritage, working on the investment banking (markets side), could be frustrating - a lot of bureaucracy, difficult to have strong competitive positioning and with lower-than-market compensation, as far as I could tell.
