    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work and learn, it is a university within corporate walls

    Cons

    SCB UK is not a place for black people, the diversity and inclusion is just on paper but don't walk the talk. Racism is very subtle and at times more overt. No promotions or considerations for internal jobs for people of color. I doubt the CEO is fully aware of what is on the ground.
