    I have been working at Hong Leong Bank

    Pros

    Good engagement with the peers and supervisors. Consider high compensation but given high target as well. Adequate training is given upon joining the company.

    Cons

    High target is given to individual. Personal growth is limited and staff benefits such as housing loan, car loan are less attractive to other banks. Outdated and slow information system for loan processing and approval.

    Advice to Management

    Management shall consider give attractive staff benefits to retain the staff. The management shall upgrade the information system to compete with other banks and to expedite the processes.

    I have been working at Hong Leong Bank full-time

    Pros

    Great work locations, high salary, and good benefits

    Cons

    All these new tech and innovations they show in advertisements and roadshows are all a facade. The bank's infrastructure still rely on traditional computing, slow manual time consuming processes, with no plans to modernize their infrastructure. They rely on employment agencies for manpower, so they always get incompetent employees from overseas. Their developers are so incompetent with highly suspicious years of experience...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of agencies and have higher standards in hiring tech employees.
