Working at a local bank is pretty straightforward regardless of position/department/function. There is a tacit understanding of job stability but with a trade-off of lower renumeration relative to industry peers in other companies.

Vice President (Former Employee) - Singapore
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 ?
Pros

VP (Former Employee) - Raffles Place
A good place for fresh graduates keen to join the banking industry. Staff benefits are pretty competitive compared to market with 23 days annual leave starting this year.
