Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
SCB (HK) Ltd is my 1st job in Hong Kong. I love the bank so much coz they gave me lots of different job opportunities. When I joined the bank, I was a teller. Then I transferred to a Personal Finance Consultant in 3 yrs. Moreover, I worked as a mortgage consultant for 5 yrs and become a mortgage director for 17 yrs. SCB also provided many training for me so that I can equip myself to be a better person. I highly recommend you to work for SCB.

Nice company to work for

The company is good to work for if you are in senior position, they have different culture as in different department. if you are lucky to go to a department with nice boss. Then you will be good to go or in opposite.

Productive, friendly

Teamwork was key. Culture at the bank was great and most enjoyable was the people I met at work not only from the HK office but also from the network around the footprint. Opportunity to work with staff from other countries and able to participate in different projects.

You get what you do

It is a fair workplace and the more tasks you perform, the higher the salary you would get. It is a workplace that promotes fairness and responsibility.

Fun Workplace

Good working place, good team work. Learn a lot of banking service, manage clients flow, solve complaint cases. The hardest part of job is to fulfill the service needed by customers which the service is not provided by the bank. Under such cases, I need to seek for the other team to help the customers.

Best era for those who have worked there in the past but low pay in industry standard

SCB is famous for acquiring good talents but not keeping them for long run development after constant training provided. Good teams and excellent management that brought Global visions.

High pressure, low job security

High turnover, long hours, repetitive work, poor working atmosphere, people shouting everyday, no overtime pay even though you stay in the office over a night.


More than average pay


Long hours, poor culture
