Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
stressful when it comes to delivery. long hours work. management help is less. weekends work will be in place and you cant expect to learn anything other than project. self learning ZERO bcoz you wont get time. as weekdays are tiring, you will try to rest on weekends where you can find refreshment?

Pros

learning.. only learning nothing else

Cons

long hours, no work life balance, you wont learn anything other than your project bcoz you wont get time.

Great company, management and culture

Great company to work at. People are generally and genuinely helpful and collaborative. Senior management is well-respected in the industry and listens to employee feedback. Only thing is some departments are siloed, yet there are many job overlaps between teams. Also, career progression is slow, and increments are minimal.

Pros

Good benefits, collaborative culture, good management

Cons

Slow career progression, hierarchical, complex org structures

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Stable environment that empowers you, opportunities to grow and learn. Patient supervisors.

Had a good experience because I worked in a small team that collaborated cross-functionally with internal and external stakeholders. Hence, I managed to receive good exposure in a short amount of time.

Pros

Relatively competitive salary, interesting and meaningful projects, great colleagues with good work ethics, pleasant environment to work in.

Cons

Workflows can be a bit messy because the bank is so big, approvals for projects take very long, approval processes are complicated and involve many parties.

Good place to work

Good place to work. People work hard. Expectations are high, however, the worklife balance seems to be ok. Salary is ok, can be competitive. Bonus seems to be optimistic.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

can be stressful at times.

Biased, inhuman but well paid

DBS IBGT at CBP was a nightmare. People are ready to walk all over you at the slightest opportunity. you name the type of discrimination and this place is a breeding ground for it. Racial, language, age, gender. Meetings are full of inappropriate jokes.

Pros

Salary and bonus i guess

Cons

If you want to be alive, get out

Learning ground for fresh grads

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.

Benefits too common

Benefits are too common, other competitors have it as well. Would appreciate it if benefits are differentiable and unique. Competitive pay and good workplace culture.

Pros

Good and Competitive Pay

Cons

Benefits not outstanding

High-paying but stressful

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.

Pros

Competitive salary, more annual leaves

Cons

Very stressful, politics and negative culture at certain departments (not all)

poor management and limited growth

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 - 

Pros

we get red packets or new notes for festive season before the public gets them

Cons

long hours. low salary. horrible work environment.

Fast-paced but has good benefits and culture

I was only an intern at DBS so am unable to provide a very accurate view of working in the company, but the company culture is great, and has great benefits for its employees, especially those of higher ranks.

Senior management focus on their KPI

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.

Stable Bank

Staff benefits are good. Depending on which department you are in, work life balance can be good and bad Very distinct culture of Asian pride when you join the bank

No benefits/bonus

As a first customer touch based, we were never offered to be converted to perm. No salary benefits and career advancement either. More OT is expected and micro managing.
