It was a good opportunity to grow. People were generally nice, and work-life balance was pretty good. I liked the company, but a lot of the work was monotonous.

Well paid but lack of progression opportunities

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.

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.

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.


Benefit and remuneration


Ruined your career and resume

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.


Training & Learning, good medical benefits


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

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.
