Only concerned on numbers. Management pushes you for figures only. No work life balance. Staff welfare is undermined. Ostracised if you do not fare well, constant peer pressure to clinch the most sales.

The working environment is one of the worst I've seen, frequent last min change of road show location, working hours not taken into consideration, have worked 3 weeks straight of 12hrs shift without a single off day. after failing probation due to covid 19, retrenched without any empathy. After retrenchment, refuse to pay my commission even tho manager made a verbal promise.
Pros
transport allowance
Cons
bad management

A typical day at work comprises of clocking the KPI for all outlets and preparing powerpoint slides weekly.
Management in my department is very caring, helpful and fun. Knows when to have fun and time to get serious.
Hardest part of the job was the beginning when I do not have any banking background and the terms to understand, but gradually I managed to pick up pretty quickly.

I find my job scope pretty enjoyable as I get to learn many things and get exposed to different banking opportunities.

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.

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.

A culture where vendors are given more respect than deserved. Management are somewhat unaware of what is happening in their space. Remuneration is very repectable.

This is stressful environemt but the working level at the project team and the vendor is excellent. A lot to learn from each other in term of technology and ideas. However, the work culture is bad and lack in team leader and management leadership in handling the project.

1. The High Turnover Outfit
Red flags: Key roles pop up consistently on a company’s job site.


How bad is it: A company should not be on the hunt for the same important roles in management or leadership every six months, and if they are that means that they have fallen into a hire-and-fire cycle. This can indicate a few things. One, leadership may be very fickle; unable to land on the specific qualities they want in a candidate. Two, the company may have a bad internal culture which makes retention nearly impossible, no matter how talented the new hires may be. Three, top level goals may be as fleeting as the talent.

As a major bank in Singapore, most of the things that can be said has been said. They have great benefits, many career path and work environment.

Due to how big the institution is, there is no telling how great your immediate work environment is, it can be really good or really frustrating due to colleagues or supervisor.


People say that employees rarely leave jobs but they leave managers, I think truth can be said about myself when my department had a change of manager.
