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.

Family environment
Working in UOB makes me feel welcomed and enjoyable. I like it that the colleagues feel like family. They care for you and makes you feel at ease.
Sometimes you are required to work long hours but at least you get paid overtime.


I enjoy the culture as it is not the typical office workplace and you can chat/laugh with your colleagues.

Not so ideal for people looking for work life balance
It is a sales oriented culture and long working hours, not ideal for people looking for work life balance. Colleagues and bosses wasn't too helpful, even HR people were grumpy too.

Renumeration/Stability Trade-off
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.
Pros
Job stability
Cons
Poor compensation and benefits

Your standard banking workplace
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.
