      "Bank knows what it is doing"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at DBS Bank full-time

        Pros

        A CEO that knows what he is talking about, passionate to deliver and making banking joyful. Streamlining the customer experience is important.

        Cons

        Process driven and at times archaic with overthrowing some of the past bureaucracies. But good effort is spent not only at identifying problems but also at ways to solve them.

        "Good place to start out as fresh graduate"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at DBS Bank

          Pros

          Had very good staff benefits that are generous and comprehensive. Very transparent in terms of appraisal and the office at MBFC has scenic view.

          Cons

          Very stiff competition among colleagues. Too much emphasis on those who got in through graduate programme that makes the rest feel unappreciated.

          Advice to Management

          Promotion should be based on performance and not point of entry.

          I have been working at DBS Bank full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          DBS invest in some of the most cutting edge technologies, enabling its employee to work digitally. The iFlex benefit and iTime policy also enables us to take full control of our benefit and working schedule.

          Cons

          As all transforming companies, people need to catch up with the technology being introduced and need to learn to work with technology - sadly not everyone is catching up fast enough!

          Advice to Management

          After transforming your core, don't forget to transform your people too.

          - Investments in modern tech stack and upskilling employees - Initiatives to make DBS a ‘workplace of choice’ - leadership and HR easily accessible, always open for feedback

          Cons

          Company growing at a rapid pace. One needs to be patient to get around operational complexity of large organizations

          I have been working at DBS Bank full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          Benefits are quite good. Number of leaves given in a year is a lot compared to other companies.

          Cons

          Overworked and underpaid. KPI has been increased by a lot while pay has not been increased by much. Management don’t really see the work environment at branches as a “show” is put up when they do visit.

          Advice to Management

          Do put yourself in the shoes of employees before deciding any changes.
