The learning opportunities are vast at Standard Chartered, and this is probably the best thing about working here. There is good work culture, which is also supportive to the learning process. The companies policies towards their employees are also top notch, and while you dont feel special, you dont feel used either. The work culture also allows a lot of freedom.
The career progression is rather slow, and off late job security is an issue with the current economic scenario. There is also increasing work pressure.
Fairly casual atmosphere for a large bank
“Good company to work for overall, great name on your resume”
Excelent work life balance, and a good corporate culture. A very interesting and modern working environment. Good exposure to markets from around the world. And a great set of people to work with, extremely talented and intelligent.
The working hours can be long. And the senior management is often very brash and far too short term oriented in their thinking.
Decision making process very slow for an organisation of this size of repute.
