Right place, right time - perfect opportunity. Life is good only when you can meet and exceed sales targets. Potentially working on weekends due to the retail nature of work.
Pros
Deferred stock options realised after 3 years, quarterly commissions after exceeding salary hurdle rate.
Cons
Expect to work on weekends and potentially public holidays. 12 hour days are typical in most cases.

I had a lot of fun working with the company, everyone was very friendly and helpful. My supervisor especially was involved with me and ensured to make sure I learned as much as possible every single day. He was very kind to sit with me and help me go through my reflections for each week. He really helped me a lot in my internship project as well. He was a really good mentor to me.

Accounting opening and pitching to customers about products. Workplace is competitive. Hardest part is to hit targets. Most enjoyable part is everyone works hard together.

A lot of human interaction daily, and i have learnt you have to be sincere in what you are providing in order to maintain a long term relationship. 'Stay True' is what it has been emphasizing - for us to be transparent, integrity and truthful in everything thing that we are doing. I would say interaction is the most enjoyable part of the job and i get to meet different people from different parts world.

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.
