  5. ADCB does not appreciate hard work, integrity, accountability and ownership, and real leadership is almost nonexistent.

    I have been working at ADCB full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a government-backed bank. A big player in the local market considered a "good name".

    Cons

    Culture does not encourage ownership of anything. Lack of or very inadequate internal processes. Awkward change management culture. Toxic culture. Expect abuse, disrespectful behavior, and deep politics. Ingrained culture that diiscourages ownership and accountability. Lack of transparency with regard to variable pay.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk, don't just fake it! So please address the toxic work culture and try to implement what is often talked about. Those who have worked only at ADCB or have landed senior management jobs at ADCB with very sparse banking industry experience must get trained in the basics of sound banking practices. Reward people who demonstrate leadership and are bold and take responsibility and genuinely look after the Bank's reputation and interests.

    Pros

    Senior management support change for the better with little 'red tape'. A good multinational workforce which seeks to achieve success for the bank as a whole. Very UAE focused, which doesn't allow for overseas distractions seen in other firms of similar size.

    Cons

    Cultural clashes occur where differing methods of how to achieve outcomes take a disproportionate influence on the course of discussions. Pay levels are mid market at best, particularly in a rising market as is occurring now.

    Advice to Management

    Communication on future strategy is not as robust as it was. It would be a welcome return to have regular messages coming out of the top.
