The post was meant to clarify a previous one.

Promotion is "guaranteed up to AVP" in local banks. They have a "culture of no firing" so you can likely cruise at AVP without getting retrenched.

Please relook into the definition of a clown, thanks.

I think if you start off as a GTP aka graduate program,
After rotation it is almost certain that you will hit avp3 unless you are super buay kan or go offend someone powerful.

After all this is a fast track program to groom future leaders.

For lateral hires definitely slower and no guarantee. That said if you cannot make it to avp in say 7-8 years I think you will leave unless you are those bank tellers kind.

Oh oops.. i thought a clown is someone who made ppl laugh.. Sry, should be “Dont be a joke pls” instead

For even believing that there could potentially be a thing such as guaranteed promotion.. Needing to clarify such statements made me laugh. Hence, you = JOKE

Original poster here. For local banks this is true to certain extent. Stay long enough and you will eventually hit AVP unless you're absolutely terrible, in which case you'll probably leave on your own anyway. They also have a culture of protecting jobs which is why you hear about people wanting to move from foreign to local bank during mid career. No pay cut during economic downturn, just lower bonuses possibly.

There are so many AVPs sitting around in MO/BO, just waiting for the lucky break where they get to move up to VP. Salary ceiling is probably around 9k a month (talking about DBS), up to 3 months bonus.

But note that this safe path can be absolutely soulless and dreadful. The hours are long, yet the work you do is quite trivial and sometimes just for show. I've a friend in DBS who said that more than half of the cohort would have left the BO graduate program by the end of two years.

If you like work-life balance, go a MO role. Salary is higher than BO, although not as high as FO, but the work life balance is great man

Thanks so much for the information

So much more helpful compared to people who come in and diss or laugh at comments that aren't funny.
