    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is the best place to work. The pay and benefits are great! Your knowledge will grow, as you will be tasked with many projects. Most of all the people are great, very diversified! I miss my "work family".

    Cons

    None really. If you don't like New York city life then this is not the place for you. HQ is in the middle of Times Square.

    Pros

    Everyone seems to have been there for a long time so it seems there is a good work-life balance and employees end up being really great friends.

    Cons

    The back office was a bit far from central downtown Hong Kong. As a contracted worker, there is no bonus.

    Pros

    Very good training, Learning experience, Work life balance, Facilities, Subsidised staff loan rates

    Cons

    Internal HR policies that discourage internal promotions and growth. An internal promotion will not give you the next grade and salary until almost an year has passed in the new role, whereas a externally recruited person will get the same immediately and probably with a higher salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotion based salary increments should not be restricted by policy to a maximum percentage, it should be open for industry average. Improve on the very lengthy internal HR review and screening process.
