    Current Employee - Fast Track Graduate in Taipei (Taiwan)

    I have been working at Standard Chartered Bank full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good employment benefits (15 days annual leave at least, vacation expense complementary)
    No check-in and check-out, which is very different from the traditional local way.

    Cons

    The programme basically offers little on-job training and involves lots of time when you have to force sell people products. You will be doing what a salespeople do and that's the only thing you will be doing in this programme as well.

    Also, there's a lack of team spirit among colleagues; this could be due to the fact that most of the colleagues you will be working with are sales people in a branch who receive constant pressure from the branch manager and working in a team wouldn't help them in expanding their business so they are not encouraged to cooperate with one another, but rather work alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Matrix management style can cause a lot of conflicts and troubles.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
