    "Bank knows what it is doing"

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.
