Mostly involved in meetings to ensure projects are developed and on track for deployment. The work environment is OK with occasional late nights. Was hired by the bank as a contractor, so don't expect the same benefits as a perm staff. Discrimination of entitlement is quite jarring and frankly demoralizing.
My jobscope was changed suddenly on my first day of work. I did not have the expertise and experience in the new role. Ex-boss was racist and only cared for his staff who had the same nationality as him. I was treated unfairly. I was involved in 24 hr work shift, doing production support. I was asked to work in the afternoon shift from 2 pm to 11 pm. I was not allowed to make transport claim after work. Then I realised that I was the only one who could not make the transport claim. My ex-colleagues who worked in the same shift as me, could claim their taxi fares. I asked my ex-boss about this discrepancy. He denied whatever he had said. This is not the only instance when I was treated unfairly. And I am a Singaporean, while he was only holding a Work Pass Permit. I am one of the 3 Singaporeans under him. The rest are all Work Permit Holders from the same country. I wanted to complain to HR but I could not as I was a contract staff.

Toxic boss and working environment
High-paying but stressful, offers longer annual leaves and fair amount of medical leave. Negative side is hard to find the balance between work and family due to amount of time-dedication.
Competitive salary, more annual leaves
Very stressful, politics and negative culture at certain departments (not all)
it depends where we are posted. if you're posted to the branches, your opportunity to grow or earn a higher than the decent amount will be robbed almost instantly. they will randomly throw new roles and duties to staff such as insurance sale or loan officer at you and you're expected to learn and push for sales asap as it will be included in your KPI. you bonus is highly dependent on your sales of insurance, not your work ethics or performance as a service staff. you can give the best service to customers but your bonus will be zero if you don't force insurance sales on customers. branch management is usually extremely poor and the managers/leaders are horribly biased and unprofessional. some managers/seniors get very personal with staff and conveniently forget to behave in a professional manner. complaining to HR just worsen the treatment in the branch as the people in the branch will not treat you kindly after knowing you burst their bubble. The working hours are longer than expected and there is no compensation for the extra time you put in. once in a while you will receive items like nuts or muffins for your hard work, not extra pay or a justified bonus. the managers are not helpful and you live with stress every minute in the job as they are just out to expose your mistakes. one mistake made will be used as leverage for them to scare you throughout the year. you will be reminded of it during your appraisal when they reveal how little bonus you're getting. colleagues are average although most of them are backstabbers or rats. it is not an enjoyable workplace, neither does - more...

Jobs at DBS Bank
People were very encouraging and the working environment is very dynamic, every day you can experience something new. The training you experience as a new hire/intern readily puts you at the best of your condition to meet the requirements in the client-facing role.
Current role allows one to learn based on experience, knowledge and engagement. Work environment is conducive. Must be able to adapt to changes and change of environment. At the same time, must be able to put in long hours, dedication and commitment to produce excellent results and prompt customer service.
Diverse learning experience
Working in DBS would give you ample opportunities to flex your brain muscles as you are faced with multiple situations in which you would have to resolve customers' issues. However, team managers are always around to assist and guide you in the right direction. Colleagues are very friendly and quick to welcome you as part of their team.
