SEB Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (Swedish pronunciation: [skandɪˈnɑ̌ːvɪska ˈêːnˌɧɪlːda ˈbǎŋːkɛn], "Scandinavian Individual Bank"), abbreviated SEB, is a Swedish financial group for corporate customers, institutions and private individuals with headquarters in Stockholm. Its activities comprise mainly banking services, but SEB also carries out significant life insurance operations and also owns Eurocard. The bank was founded and is controlled by the Swedish Wallenberg family through their investment company Investor AB.

A current unhappy employee says, "SEB is a scared organisation. There is no mutual respect from senior management. No honest credit to hard working staff. Great variation in leadership skills. HR comes across as very biased in favor for the employer."

Another current employee says, "Poor local management [at SEB] in operations (treasury/Corp action/Settlement) who put their own objectives in front of what is good for the company. The managers bring in their own people with questionable backgrounds and knowledge. They look after each other but the company and organisation really suffers from inefficiencies and skewed work load with a few selected doing nothing and delegating everything away. Push back culture, minimum effort approach to what is needed. Sadly the rest of the company has no idea what's going on."


Tell the world why SEB sucks!

I certify that this review is based on my own experiece and is my opinion of this person or business. I have not been offered any incentive or payment to write this review.

"Managers and Superviors should work togther with the dept to maker sure they all get along. And appreciate the hard-working employee dept.And knowledge the employees been there for several years and what they have provided for the. company. HR your open door policy need to work better especially with senior employee within the company. You work so hard through raise percentage base on SALE for year economy."


"Negative culture, rule by fear and intimidation."

Current Employee - Vice President Sales says

"Leadership is non existent. Treat people terribly with no respect. Constant pressure to make a monthly number at the expense of any cohesive strategy or regard for the customer."

Former Employee - Chief Executive Officer says

"Too much to mention, cooperate"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"High turnover Blame culture Senior Team willing to dictate but not to listen"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Slow to operate Enthusiasm and passion for work varies from one employee to another Very paternalist environment and lots of politics Lots of duplicated work Management changes directive point of view every 6 months Very French-oriented, difficulty to adapt products, brands and processes to foreign markets"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Leadership is lacking and in dictator form, not a good environment to be creative and produce results. Unfortunately, only the lucky few were developed with training at HQ. Turnover is extremely high, both voluntary and by Company decision (job elimination). The environment is not positive and morale continues to deteriorate. Although there is some flexibility you pay for that as the job demands excessive hours and workload due to job cuts. Corporate just keeps ignoring the situation the US, which continues to decline. Company values are on paper, not in practice."

Manager says

"In a word - French. This is a VERY French company with all the cultural nightmares that go along with it. Corporate managment in France has little to no interest in what the US thinks about how to grow the business and basically wants everything that's done in France done in the US. Arrogance is not a cliche, it is real...French managers who visit the US once or twice a year think they know everything based on their knowledge of France. Getting decisions from French headquarters is the most laborious process possible. The French culture places great importance on examining all aspects of a problem before taking any decisions (the famous French preference for diplomacy), which may work in France but it is killing the business in the US, which requires speed and flexibility. The company has recently changed and two American presidents have left the company in the US and were replaced by French imports, so it is now all French all the time. One facility in Boston has been closed with all positions moving to West Orange, NJ or Cannonsburg, PA at the All-Clad facility. There is no respect for the US team by the French, who clearly look down on the US as a weak and inferior market. The French insist on doing everything the French way and then place all the blame on the US team when it doesn't work. Morale used to be fairly good when the two American presidents were in place but now people are just putting in their time and hoping to keep their jobs."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"1) HR leads with what’s in their own personal interest or what reflects good on them, not for the company or the people working there 2) No clear strategy is put into place 3) Some decisions are undertaken to satisfy directors and International team in France, not aligned with the market and the consumers’ habits 4) Turnover and/or dissatisfaction is high because people are overworked and the environment isn’t healthy (there is no trust between directors and their teams) 5) Some departments are a complete mess, like marketing because of lack of market understanding and basic human rights with severe micromanagement tendencies (expectations are that everyone is connected to work 24/7, results should be immediate, decisions are enforced on colleagues even if that’s not the correct path to take) 6) The only reason a person could join is to understand how not to operate 7) Promises are made when the company is sending the final offer to entice people but these compensation promises don’t pan out"

Former Employee - Junior Product Manager says
