    Pros

    Mgmt has lots of socializing event with plenty of free booze frequently. Salary is on par with the average bank salary benchmark - good if you are fresher and btw 2-3 years exp. Many experienced staffs.

    Cons

    Don't function like a bank - More like a large business corporation. System is outdated. Complex manual processes and irreversible if you carry out a step wrongly. High turnover. High overtime hours. Including weekends.
