Default is smbc a pro family company to work for?

Hi all, would like to find out as above? For instance, most gov agencies r pro family friendly. And some of the local banks r probably. They understand you do have family needs etc.

Tyvm!

Not too bad as far as banks go. But they are pretty regimental about working hours and time off, so if you are the kind happy happy want to go off early or come in late or run errands during lunch, then it will be frown on.

I used to work there as contractor supporting trade compliance, except for peak periods most of the time by 8pm most people will be gone.

They offer to renew for 1 more year and say likely will convert to perm after that, but I was not interested.

It's really a very dead end place with little increment and career progression. It will be good for you since you want stability and pro-family hour. For me once you are stuck there too long, no marketability at all so I had to leave while I can.

Once you join them you will understand, very stable uncle auntie kind of environment for back office, maciam like some SME. Very unlike international or even the local banks.

SMBC operations in general hardly any stress, most usually leave by 7 or 6.30pm. Increment can be quite bad but bonuses are quite decent usually at least 2 to 3.5 months. Career progression is mainly limited to rank promotions: officer - senior officer - assistant manager - deputy manager - manager - senior manager - AGM

Can transfer departments but usually only after a long time like 5 years + etc.

Overall, among the 3 Jap mega banks, SMBC has the best benefits and is the least regimental among the others. Also, their training department is in KL so if you sign up for any courses can fly to KL and stay at the Hilton for a few days

Er if due to urgent family problem can take half-day leave. Time-off etc think is limited to 2 hours max if not have to take half-day. Depends on your boss.
