    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank

    Pros

    Strong Brand within APAC. Strength lies within Corporate /Institutional Banking

    Cons

    Poor Talent Management. Poor Culture, In fighting between Sales, Credit and Collections. Political. No real strategy to dominate in the market. Leadership cocooned within UK rather than the emerging markets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is a challenge in India. Most leaders come with a 2 year horizon so the vision for the bank is reset every 2 years and hence has no real strategic value

    I worked at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, great people with lots of years with the bank

    Cons

    Salaries are not at all based on performance but based on your level in the organization. Awards make up for salary. Business units goals are not aligned with management goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees happy and tell them your vision as a bank. People are just working towards monthly targets.

    Pros

    1. Great brand
    2. Community Service
    3. Excellent Relationship Management

    Cons

    1. Weak and unskilled HR (HR has never been robust ).
    2. "Here for people" is fast disintegrating.
    3. Potential resources are being side-lined . Line Managers and their henchmen rule the Bank.
    4. "Grievance Cell" is non-functional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Please identify ( an independent judgement ), recognize and retain potential resources. And, be fair and just to all.

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    No pros actually. It was a good bank during the good times I.e till the financial crisis hit the Asian economies.
    There is a pretence of being a big bank but it is actually pretty small globally even if compared to its MNC peers & other indian banks

    Cons

    Bad politics
    Lack of growth
    Vintage in the company is a curse
    Lack of consistent & transparent HR policies
    Inconsistent & flawed vision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change course towards your employees & the way you are treating them. The times will get better but if you walk ahead on this path, you may end up with no employees or customers.
    And soon turn into "here for no good"
