Friendly colleagues and comfortable working environment. The company basically treat their employee equally and nice. There is re-org every year. I have learned a lot of stakeholder management and project management here.

Contractors would be treated like a work slaves. Employees are expected to work on weekends. They take it granted without concerning about developers burnt-out
Cons
Stressful work life

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...
Pros
we get red packets or new notes for festive season before the public gets them
Cons
long hours. low salary. horrible work environment.

You have to constantly put up a good front, and show your capabilities else, you might be looked down upon. People there are not the nicest although it might not be shown directly. Have to be prepared to sometimes get scolded for minor issues.

Very slow progression for the tech people.
Salary increment is a little (<200$), or even none for band 2 rating!

Managers don't really care about the subordinates.

A typical workday can be very busy to very lax depending on the time of year. Learned a lot due the exposure to explore new technologies. Management is good but felt that there is always that something lacking in terms of promoting and rewarding loyalty and skill. Challenges are the long hours put in due to rushing for timeline but made bearable with the group of colleagues working together

Legacy structure and unsupportive management. Good guidelines and systems in place with minimal allowance for change and reinvention due to rigid management.
