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.

Despite my efforts to like the bank, I left somewhat burnt out. I'll qualify first that the pay and bonuses were promising (though I didn't stay long enough to reap the latter), and job security is a given as long as you hit your targets.

The section I entered was filled with new hires who were given a system that suffered from an aging list of bugs and enhancement requests, with barely any handover. In addition, they lacked history with the system, and lacked guidance on how to perform basic maintenance tasks. Colleagues in other sections would try to help, but were limited due to their own workload and unfamiliarity with our system as well. The manager "parachuted" in was also bogged down with other systems of his own to oversee. I feel that the whole situation could have been managed much better.


Aside from high-level documents, documentation of persisting production issues was sparse and poor, and during my time at the bank, we resorted to taking down notes as we went along. Outsourced technical support came from an overseas team, also a fresh team who did also not know about the history of the system, compounding to our difficulties in reining the issues in.


To compensate, we would regularly work 11-hour days to fight the fires, with the overtime hours being ignored (the claims filed never got approved). During my time at the bank, it was clear that overtime was the norm, with even seasoned veterans (>20 years' experience) working beyond official working hours regularly. We were also expected to stay back to perform maintenance late at night if the system required

Would really appreciate if they could give their employees chances or opportunities for them to grow. The hardest part of the job was to face different type of people in the management with the office politics.

Good Luck, if you get the bad managers say goodbye to your happy life. And most of them are bad, acting like a boss not a leader. They will stretch out the most out of you and blame you if you dont meet the deadline. You will die working here and they wont even appreciate it. Stay away.
Pros
Near mrt green and downtown line
Cons
Very very bad management

My current role is to support the bonds custody function for premier clients in OCBC. While supporting the function, daily I will encounter queries posted by customers to our relationship managers, queries from product managers and some other internal clients. I like what I am doing now because I get to understand the needs of my internal clients and to provide guidance, and assistance when necessary.

My day at work includes tasks like data entry and income update. Basically what i did was to update customer income details whenever they change their jobs into the Silverlake system. Besides income update, I helped to key in customer's data into the bank system for record purposes. Even though the working hours are long, I still enjoyed my job as it was my ideal internship. The most enjoyable part is that I get to meet new people like temp staff and full timers. What I have learnt is good time management skills so that I can complete the given tasks on time. Initially when I first started, it was difficult as working was something totally new for me and I do not know anyone there. But over the weeks, I started to feel comfortable with working in an office environment. Therefore, I have benefited a lot from this internship.

This was my internship during polytechnic days. Was appointed into the Home Loans department where there is a number of contract staff as well as another intern who has been there for a long time. There isn't much for me to do except a data entry that is given once a week that I can do it within a day. Day to day business will be to print out certain cases of loans to write the case number and get one of the staff to sign them and pass to another department.
Basically there is nothing much for me to do there.

When this issue is raised to the heads, I was then given a "project" to do filling for the company. A shelf full of car loans hard copy and to arrange them in alphabetically order.


Over there may seems like a fast pace place where everyone seems busy, however everything I was assigned to do I have to do them slowly in order to keep myself occupied.
Pros
Friendly co-worker, no overtime required
Cons
Over manpower, lack of things to do
