Good place to work

Team is well structured with nice people to work with. There is a good amount of basic training before expectations kick in so you have ample time to learn and develop your skills.

Conducive environment with nice n helpful colleagues

Colleagues are generally nice but systems are very bad. There are lots of manual reconciliations with short deadlines. A lot of time are spent on manual stuff. Systems introduced don’t work well n we need to help system instead of the other way.People are friendly n willing to help generally. The company has very good medical benefits not only for staff but also applicable to their family.

Pros

Good medical benefits

Cons

Systems always have problems, take long time to rectify system issues. Management n relevant teams push FO to be held accountable, huge stress to be FO.

Culture is stifle. Management use a top down approach. Work life balance doesnt really exist. Shortage of staff. Some managers do not lead but just bossy.

High Stress and Political at times

Challenging work and high attention to details required. Long hours everyday but I learned a lot on how to navigate a very formal organisation. Overall a good place to learn about IT.

Very Stressful

Working at Bank of Singapore is very stressful. There is no respect of employees. Employees are taken for granted. Very long working hours and weekend working.

This is the first time the central bank has eased monetary policy since April 2016, and comes amid faltering growth in Singapore as a protracted trade war and a global tech downturn continue to weigh on the key manufacturing sector.

Toxic

Not a recommended choice. Extremely toxic culture and political cut throat exhibited from top management to bottom employees. The IT Department is managed by program managers who are slave drivers so that you worked for them 7 days a week on call including holidays and with no work life balance. There is no appreciation of your hard work and sacrifices. I came from reputable banks to join BOS and now truly regretted my decision dragging my feet to come to work everyday. This is not sustainable.

Pros

Benefit and remuneration

Cons

Ruined your career and resume

Good CIO office

Boss is good

The leaders of the MR team are really good and open to various insights and ideas. He gives you ample opportunity to prove yourself and display your capability. Encouraging and gives good feedback.

Different culture to established banks

Back office and compliance staff are all the least priority in this company, over focus on front office team as it is at the expanding stage. Couldnt maintain overall staff morale. Poor management

Pros

Work-life balance and reasonable workloads

Cons

Lack of team spirit and poor maganement

Highly overworked environment with severe manpower shortage

Management is constantly pushing for more revenues without allowing headcount to keep up. As a result, each individual is extremely overworked due to the increasing number of clients on-boarded, yet hardly new staff are recruited to share the burden of the workload.

Cons

Very manual and backward in terms of technology, many processes have to be manually tended to, too many rules and regulations.
