Agile approach but it means extended working hours
AVP (Current Employee) – Hong Kong – January 25, 2020
As a former channel product manager, the bank uses an agile approach in all of their product developments. The banks is catching up and as well known as the best digital bank in the bank, but it means a lot of non-office hour work. It is on record that 36 out of 52 weekends requires staff to work on channel testing and development work, that is 2/3 weekends of the year. This is the result of agile and aggressive approach to catch up to the big banks. A lot of the times it involves a fix of a new solution launch, which means the planning, testing and execution is not done thoroughly. Even compensation leaves can be taken, but the amount of work is just too much, as it will be waiting for you after your leave.
