Not sure how they determine the grade and title. Seems like everyone is AVP/VP, even though some might be inexperienced?Know of a new joiner who has never been in that role before being offered a VP. Hmm

Little career progression. Good for retirement. Low salary and bonus

Low salary, low bonus. Little career progression. Everyone in department is contented with status quo, good for retirement. Department head is bias, favoring certain individual. only yes-man will perform greatly here.

Stressful but learnt a lot

Very hierarchical but expected. Work life balance is not very good. Career advancement not as easy as other banks. Steep learning curve. Management generally is capable.

Fun workplace

I work with a team of 10 to 12 Customer Service Executives. A typical day starts of with a 15-minute briefing for the team. Assist with approval functions in system, feedbacks from customers and letter or email writing. Attend meetings and work with various departments.


Young and vibrant work environment


Long hours
