All is good. Superiors can be more hands on and more impartial when it comes to performance evaluation - based on own experience. Work environment is generally good with decent pay package.

Competitive environment

Competitive environment as a starting job. Unable to see job security or future if you join in as a contract staff. Was working there for a year + and 3/4 of the time will OT to clear backlog. Teams and people come and go quickly

Regimental culture

If you are new, most people will be unwilling to help you out and whenever you ask for help, they will be very rude towards you. Everything is trial and error, you learn by making mistakes, which I think is bad as it drastically affects job satisfaction and motivation to even go to work.

Cons

Long hours
Was this review helpful?

Stressful and competitive

Managers only care about targets and sales. They do not care if you have worked 12 hours. It is essentially culture that you have to stay till late unless you've already hit your sales targets.

Pros

Nice colleagues

Cons

Long hours, No work life balance, No life in general

Internship experience

Kinda don’t like the work culture there, manager is not friendly at all. New to the environment but their expectation on new comer is high. Don’t recommend you to work there if you can’t take stress or long working hours.

Pros

Exposure to working with other teams

Cons

long hours, bad culture

There's a lot of work need to do

Working as a contractual staff in OCBC. OCBC Bank is a fantastic place to work, you can learn a lot of things here not only on a technical basis but also on how to deal with other people.

Pros

good working environment within my department

Cons

Long working hours, insane amount of workload

Good employee benefit but staff is not valued by management

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)

Bad Managment

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

Work Oriented

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.

Learning Experience

Great learning curve in a fast paced and stressful environment. Lots of training are provided from industries experts to assist you in your daily activities.

Nice working environment

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.

Okay place

Okay place to work in. Nice people, depending who you work with. ATM conveniently located at lobby. Office is near MRT and various food choices. Recommend.

High paying but redundant work

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

Good

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.
