    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Too many frequent business changes which lack logic and sense. Management is strong but senior management do not transcend their leadership or vision to the work force nor cascade communication well. People generally have a strong work ethic and business and finance acumen. 30 days annual leave for new starters.

    Cons

    Poor bonuses and pay vs industry. Too many frequent business changes which lack logic. Lack of diversity, promotions and progress is limited. Stale senior management in Europe.
