    they should conduct some sessions to engage with employees.
    bank will always value feedback from customer as it needs to grow business.
    but employee's voice should also be heard.

    Too much work pressure at the lower levels. Inadequate growth opportunities and low compensation. Should be more transparent in all things. Overall performance should be counted not just sales.

    At lower levels employees need to be more valued, They are the core of the organization. Adequate communication measures are required.

    Pros

    Known brand name, stable organization, Dynamic CEO, opportunity to grow if delivers agressive sales numbers over and above everything else

    Cons

    Not employee friendly for new joinees specially at senior levels. Not structured and systems and processes , aggressive without process and support systems, company gives points to extremely high work output without the relevant process/ steps to reach there. employee support from HR is missing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More employee support, new joinees made to feel welcome , mentor system for 6 months across levels and more so at senior levels for proper handholding.
