they value external hires rather than their own staff
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  SingaporeSeptember 23, 2019
Culture is the worst out of my employment history.

You can join CS for the brand name but advise to find another job after a year as the yearly increment/bonus is very little/non existent. Don't waste your time slogging in CS as it is not rewarding.

Enjoyed my work here. Learnt a lot and made good relationships with professional colleagues. Good systems, processes and global reach.

Currently leadership team continues to navigate through cost pressures and innovation challenges due to weak macroeconomic outlook and headwinds faced by financial services as a whole industry.

Vice President / Team Leader (Former Employee) –  CBDNovember 22, 2018
My experience there is not typical. So I do not think it is fair to comment. Applicants should give weight to more recent reviews, if any are available.

Warning: Do your due diligence and consider carefully before accepting
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Central Business DistrictSeptember 17, 2018
Due to budget cuts, certain departments have become very lean. Many departments are top heavy. Frequent restructurings occur due to change in senior management. Most of them are politically driven. Like most organizations, internal politics are common. Job descriptions can also change if offshoring happens.
Weak company results led to low bonuses (for certain departments) and huge attrition. They would rather hire contract staffs and keep resources lean.
Internal processes are lacking or lost in transition due to staff attrition and offhsoring. Knowledge has been lost in some cases. Most of the best practices are either verbal or handed over from generation to generation without proper documentation. New joiners will not have a clear picture of certain processes and/or how things are done and handled.
As a result of the attrition and restructuring, roles were callously and quickly filled by new employees with little or no relevant experience. The poor job fit saw the hiring of leaders or managers with the inability to make effective decisions, poor leadership and ineffective management skills. This also led to mismanagement in the career of the affected employees.
Very slow career progression (below average) with almost no visible path for development.
Offshoring and Globalization of resources resulted in internal inefficiencies. Work related issues ranging from HR to IT are remotely operated offshore. E.g, a lot of time is wasted on sending screenshots and waiting for someone in another time zone to respond to your issues. Cultural and language issues have not been
  more... considered when the company decides to offshore these functions.A lot of work that has been offshored have processes that were either lost in translation or transition resulting in possibly some duplication of work or unnecessary work.  less
Pros
Health benefits and that is just about it; apart from the strong brand name and reputation.
Cons
Budget cuts and frequent restructurings, Poor Management and Weak Culture, Inefficient Management of Resources, Continuous Offshoring and Contract Hiring for years

Wonderful training opportunities
DERIVATIVES DOCUMENT ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Raffles PlaceAugust 11, 2018
The thing I love the most is their wonderful training opportunities. 50% of management are open and approachable. They have a "buddy system" for learning on the job. It is a problem when the department has office "group clicks" . When individuals get alienated this can counter office productivity. They have a steep learning curve if you just started in the industry.
Pros
Wonderful training opportunities
Cons
Steep learning curve for newbies

Thumbs Down
Vice President (Current Employee) –  SingaporeDecember 27, 2017
Overly rigid, overly hierarchical, old fashioned bank. There are no visionaries here, just politicians. This is not a place for those who seek professional development. A poorly managed institution who cloaks this by describing itself as "an entrepreneurial" organisation.

If you are a blue-eyed Swiss you will be taken care of (politically as well as job security wise).

Expect no direction from Management (MDs and Directors), as they are out to protect themselves and nothing more. The culture (as such exists) is basically a "free-for-all" where you sink or swim on your own.

The pay is good and colleagues (VP and below) are great. A good place to park for a couple of years, collect a good salary and then move on.
Pros
Good brand on your CV, good salary, great colleagues
Cons
Poor management, way too much politics, "The Swiss Way"

Intern (Former Employee) –  SingaporeNovember 20, 2017
I only worked there for a month so I do not have a great understanding of the company. As an intern I took care of tasks such as quality assurance and I could apply it in my later career.
