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.

Nil

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.

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.

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

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.

My 7 years and 2 Months

BOS is a bank I'm very proud of, because it represents "Singapore". Being a local private bank, yet with a global outreach. Most nights I was very busy and overwhelmed because of too many customers, which, I think speaks for itself, that's BOS! Our diverse customer base indeed contributed to my learning and understanding of clients' investment needs. As such, management has always been trying to fulfill those needs through upgrading the bank's capabilities. The hardest part during my time with BOS was always the grave-yard shift, serving the US markets for seven long years. As a result I missed out in terms of people interaction and activities at the bank level. However, the most gratifying moment were those who worked so closely with me, they were dynamic, resourceful and open-minded young people.

Pros

Training & Learning, good medical benefits

Cons

Night shift hours of 7pm - 5am. Affected my bio-clock

Productive workplace.

Perform compliance monitoring. I was also tasked to compile monthly compliance reports to my team head to submit to higher management. I learnt a lot about bank compliance, and also discovered that it was something I could do well.
