I have learnt a lot in Standard Chartered, and I have managed to grow and move between department from Private Banking as Senior Manager of Royal Family portfolio accounts, to Client Coverage Manager with Commercial Banking.
My role got redundancy, at the moment I don't hold a job.
Good time spent in StanC as they call it. Learned a lot and moved cross functional, achieving flexibility and exposure to different segments and business areas. StanC takes care if it’s people and give chance for growth. I got promoted 3 times in 5 years, which was very good growth considering the market circumstances. Overall a good employer you cherish to work for.
Management somewhat self-obsessed, processes prevent action, meetings are overly frequent and overly populated. Too many micro teams means too many touch points to get projects done. Inefficiency everywhere
my immediate boss was supportive .
while top management there was discriminations .my performance was up to mark . terminate me for no professional reason.
my father diagnose cancer .can check my performance while terminated on performance . they terminated me on 30may 2017 my father passed away on 23 may 2017..my career my financial all destroyed .i owe the loans from esteemed bank for my father treatment .which are now in default .I came back to uae for job but as they come to know they process my cheq for legal .still I have offered but cant accept cause of police case ..with bank it was great to work but unfortunately ..
It was awesome place of work culture , team work innovations technology transparency everything good except for my immediate higher up turned me down when, since I was getting a promotion parallel to him .., hence he fabricated false ways and mis quoted me ..otherwise it's the best place of 38yrs of work experience in many fields and organizations ..
One of the best entities in Banking Sectors. Best environment and culture. Supportive HR and the salary scale is also very good. Managers and the rest of the staff are very much professionally supportive along with the perks provided by the company.
I would give 10/10.
Job routine is typical, I have learned a lot of admin works. Management are very considerate. The employees' comprises of mixed cultures. I don't see any hardest part of the job as I consider those as my challenges. The most enjoyable part of the job was the attitude of the people around us, my colleagues.
