The colleagues of SCB are very kind and outstanding, I had built up good relationship with all of them, and still keep in touch after I left SCB a few years ago, amazing! The management system is also very effective and scientic.
Retail banking perform badly. Frequent OT. Management team very short sighted and not much resources and ability to help employees to complete goals. Products are not competitive at all compare to what the market is offering.
The work experience in Standard Chartered Bank Shanghai as an Executive Assistant improved myself a lot in different ways, such as my interpersonal skills, time management, event planning skill and editing skills.
i had very busy days in the bank, back to back meetings and tons of emails, everything is very fast, but not as productive.
culture-wise, normal corporate i would describe as.
hardest part is to reach alignment. ego over results.
most enjoyable part is fighting off all sorts of obstacles and delivering good work.
I was working five days a week as a contract employer. My position in SCB is relation manager in loan department. Through two years that working there I learned more communicate skills even with customers or co-workers. I really appreciate them taught me a lot. I think the hardest part of the job was the demanding performance we need to achieve per month. Overall SCB was a good place for me to work with.
Needs to communicate with internal stakeholder globally on an efficient manner; nice partners to cooperate with. Good opportunity for you to know more knowledge
GOOD PLACE TO LEARN NEW PRODUCTS AND STRUCTURE; NEEDS TO WORK OVERTIME
During the whole internship, I found out the importance of being cooperate in a team. During that period, getting familiar with all the bank products and communicating with customers developed my confidence of taking responsibilities to work in a Bank.
