Global Research Intern - Financial Markets (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 10, 2015
Good culture and very open for international peers.
However, SC's footprint is in Asia, Middle East and Africa not in US so there are not many businesses for the bank here.

The Hardest part of the job.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Boulevard de Centre CormmecialJune 2, 2015
There's a tendency when you start any new job to learn the basics of whatever software program your company uses so that you can plunge directly into your job. That's fine, if you already know said system. But if you aren't familiar with how your email (or any other communication systems) work, learn them now and learn them well. It will save you tons of time from having to go back later and figure out how you actually reserve a conference room or schedule a meeting electronically with a colleague. Plus, knowing a system -- as opposed to faking it and hoping that you don't accidentally hit the wrong key -- will actually make you feel more confident and like you belong. Which is why -- on my very first day -- I sat down and took an online tutorial in Outlook 2010. I'd used Outlook before, but it was two versions ago and a lot has changed. After a couple of days, that "recurring task" was like a piece of cake.

Not a bad place
Analyst (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 20, 2015
Pros: great work life balance
Cons: management should pass on information to the lower level employees
ability to work from home and flex time. Managers are helpful. Day is packed with many things to do so time goes by quick. the only issue is with management not able to give a better understanding of what is going on in the company

Director, Short Term Interest Rates Trader (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 29, 2015
Because the head office is in Singapore, we had very long days and little contact with the management. Co workers were very good and the atmosphere on the desk excellent.
The motivation and the excitement for the market were definitely the most exciting part.

Middle Office Consultant / KYC (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 22, 2014
Pros: training sessions in nyc office
Cons: policy and procedures have too much gray areas
While SCB is a fast paced environment it is also a very enjoyable place to work. I have to admit the training was mostly on the job with a more senior person but I was able to learn a lot from many co-workers who are all willing to help. Management is very engaged and helpful with any issues.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Fraud Detection AnalystOctober 12, 2014
To mention about the job role is pretty challenging as mainly used to engage with all the risk part of all patterns of transactions, reports, daily cash out & in, changes done for day to day information, etc…

Mainly we were taught in order to obtain a lower risk at all times when deal with day to day business.

The management used to focus and ready to back up whenever we in need of assistance of them at any time and as well our colleagues.

To highlight, one situation of a hard time is to convince a customer when ultimately if he face any problem/ embarrassment due to any restrictions which has been placed from the financial institute’s end.

It is a challenging environment to work but to be honest I’m capable of it as ‘Life is all about Challenges’
