    Pros

    Growing bank with good staff. Bank is eager to attract more market share.
    Lots of young people in the bank.

    Cons

    Chaotic or even absence of system. Senior management although are very competent however are not able and not allowed to take any decisions. It's a one man show, only CEO has the right to take decisions and nobody dares to even discuss his decisions. Internal system is a compete wreck, support functions are just incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in support function, IT systems and empower your employees a little bit.

    Pros

    The organisation is performance driven without any kind of internal politics and allows creativity and new ideas to generate new business and control costs.

    Cons

    Extremely demanding with constant pressure to deliver. The employee must do an out of box thinking and be creative to generate ideas which can enhance the company's value.

    Advice to Management

    To enhance direct communication with the employees about their vision. The ground level employees at times do not have a proper understanding of the management vision.

    Pros

    The company has one of the best compensation packages in the industry,

    Cons

    Corporate Banking Group needs to be revamped. Loans are recommended at the whims and fancies of the Team head. Security measures are inadequate. Relationship Managers are actually performing the role of Credit analysts and Team heads are the Relationship Managers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fool employees by calling them Relationship Managers when their job description says otherwise...

    Pros

    If you are happy to work for the next 20 years in the same place, then this is the right place for you.

    Cons

    Promotion is non existent. Employees are encouraged to take more responsibilities but wages remain very low. Bonuses average £3,000 if there is any.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your younger talents as you will just lose them to your competitors as it has happened for the past decade..
