Not a bad place to work for
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.
