Well paid but lack of progression opportunities

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall, it is a good place to be fairly paid. But not good for career advancement. Try not to stay there for more than 5 years. Lack of work recognition.

Pros

Fairly paid

Cons

Lack of work recognition

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.

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.

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

Challenging and fun working environment

Bank of Singapore is a new and growing private bank. Along with its rapidly growing business, there are so much dynamic changes on the business structure and organization which also means dynamic changes on the kind of work and responsibility you were assigned, hence the fun and challenging part.

Pros

subsidized vending machine goodies, all for only 30 cents

Cons

our office is located far from the CBD
