Perfect Start to the Banking Industry
Business Analyst ( Apprentice) (Former Employee) –  SingaporeNovember 25, 2019
Being an MNC, you're exposed to working with different types of people from all over the world. The work may sneak up on you and may just stress you out but that's normal in back-end banking.

You have a lot of perks even when starting out and the company emphasis a good work-life balance. The only company I've worked at so far that actually states work hours as 9am-5pm on paper whereas everywhere else has 6pm.

- Management can be mixed - Some are outstanding and others are outstanding people but not leaders, all have been amazing to work with

- Keeping up with the pace is hard but also exciting
- Colleagues and clients - they make the work fun and challenging all at the same time
