Fast-paced and competitive working environmanet
As a Personal Banker in UOB, it was sales driven and client-oriented. This was a fast-paced and competitive working environment. The overall culture more towards mico management as you will need to hit your KPI and keep yourself up to date to the economy.

Job Culture
Toxic and lacking in intellectual capital
Toxic working enviornment. Not where you want to be if you want to learn and grow. Most people managers there are not suitable to be managers in the first place.

A company stuck in ancient times with a Small, Medium Size company mindset.


Severely lacks intellectual capital in the company. Most staff in the company are only interested in their own interests and paycheck rather than doing what is right.


Plenty of back-stabbing politicking and boot-licking


No flexibility in working hours


No collaborative tools or spaces (Need to have private discussions in corridors!)


Ancient office infrastructure (analog phone)and technology. What is pantry space ?

Great Place To Work but Difficult Company Culture
Company is in transformational stages and there are clashes of people and cultures.

Managers tends to micro manage and over reliant on external consultants.

Job Culture
A place which wastes people's life
Do not be deceived to think that just because your colleagues are relaxed and local, they are forthcoming. This place is a place where you cannot let your boss know your aspiration as it will be used against you i.e. use it to threaten you that you will not do what you aspire rather than helping you to fulfill your dream.
Pros
Good training ground because gives you all the work
Cons
Long hours, constant re-org

A Place Where You Can Make Positive Contributions
Employee contributions are always welcome and appreciated.
There is staggered working hours to allow staff the autonomy to work at the times where they are comfortable with however, this does not apply to all roles.

Nice colleagues but no work-life balance
Have to perform Overtime almost typically everyday, sometimes even on weekends. The current FTE headcount does not meet the requirement as the income volume of work far exceeds the FTE headcount.

Very stressful long hours & weekend work
Typically everyday it was 14 hours of stressful work. You have to be available to come to office at any time on weekends. Friday evening was so stressful & frustrating in the fear of weekend work plans.

Productive and Helpful experience
During my internship there, every day was full of challenging tasks and it was one of the most meaningful experiences in my life. I learned many soft skills, related to the project management, communication, etc. within the team. My supervisor gave me lots of helpful advice which influence me over the years. Overall, they provide employers a great working environment.

Looking for better opportunities
I am very much happy with learning curves in UOB but at the same time it will be having more work load for a short period of time .
As we are contract employees from different clients we don't have enough rights to standardise the things.

9 hours working per day little work pressure will be there
Working hour is 9 hours and pressure is moderate.
