    I worked at Arab Banking

    Pros

    - Great work life balance
    - Decent compensation
    - Bahrain is a fairly comfortable and cheap place to live in.
    - The bank takes care of its employees.

    Cons

    - Leadership is extremely weak
    - Nationality bias in the selection of senior management (a heavy glass ceiling seen)
    - Originality of thinking and creativity are not encouraged much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Change the incentive and promotion structure for the bank.
    - Remove nationality and other biases in selection of senior management.
    - Senior management should not blindly follow the advice of some western consultants who take them for a ride.

    family style organization, very personal no bureaucracy, good learning curves and talented individuals in which to learn from...

    Cons

    very slow at times, boring work environment, working styles old fashioned. working hours mish smashed with 8am starts and 4pm finishes with no lunch break. people always being away within the firm on trips and holidays. cost cutting made very obvious within the firm and ridiculously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value employers who present great competence, include junior level people in the work more rather than giving very tedious tasks which do not spark any excitement and rigor.
