Pros
good working environment within my department
Cons
Long working hours, insane amount of workload

The bank has a very bad integration with supporting departments (eg, credit team is not able to provide an indicative financing amount but instead they will ask how much does client want) Poor business foresight by higher management and they do not value and groom staff (the management does not provide the necessary resources, resources are heavily skewed to a handful of people)

No foresight and is always constantly firefighting. Constantly rush to be the first in the market by only addressing the current problem without thinking about the problem that might face in the future and then rush to fight fire when a new one arises
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours

Stressful at work with colleagues that are helpful to help with your work at the same time demands you to get work done to their expectations and steep learning curve for those without experience.

I am just an intern but colleague and supervisor are really nice. They really support each other. Nice to work with them. But I don't have a lot of experiences to know each other well because the world is facing Covid 19 Pandemic and we have to work from home.

Working at a bank rewards you in temrs of the salary options but can get repetitive and dull in the long run. Not much challenging. Administrative decisions can take more time delaying the overall output of the project.
Pros
Free snacks
Cons
Long hours

It is a good workplace. As OCBC is one of the top bank, OCBC is using many different technologies. It is a very good place to learn many tools and technologies due to vast infrastructure.

The culture at OCBC is family oriented, with much emphasis placed on work-life balance. The superiors are also knowledgeable & ready to handle any issues at work.

I met OCBC as a client through an agency. The work experience in OCBC bank itself helped me get used to the industry. As a client, their requests were valid and meetings were done quickly.

This job requires shift work which include weekends. Often have to do over time and long working hours. The company will often provide training before you start work.

WLB is a myth. May be depend upon the team in which you are.
Learning is always there and job is secured but no salary standardization to the long serving loyal employees.

I was undergoing training for the first 3 months and was eventually let go due to failing role-play test which was considered critical as my role as a financial advisor.

Colleagues and managers are very helpful but like all local banks, the workload is high and depending on the department you are in, having a good work-life balance is not going to be very likely.

Habit of performing reference checks after hire. The bank is also authorised to switch your department as per business requirement without having to inform candidate.
