    I have been working at Arab National Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, Nice people, and stable company

    Cons

    Lack of vision, no many politics at the senior levels. HR staff are really nice, but HR system is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up clear vision, GM to set goals and directions, Department to set up their road map to achieve the goals.
    HR system to be more systematic and have clear standard toward personnel's appraisal.

    Pros

    One of the biggest financial institutions in KSA with branches all over the country and in some other countries.

    There is perception that locals and western employees are top in salary scale and Asians are way below this scale.

    Salary should commensurate the skills and experience and not because of your nationality

    Former Employee - Administrative Manager & Assistant Compliance Manager in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)

    I worked at Arab National Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are very few good aspects in this bank. The bank is good, but the people are like leech worms, expect to few.

    Cons

    It is just a like a Zoo to work there... Because, very few people have professionalism & solve the unexpected debacles. Hate Tanami Co., Bank's affiliated Co. a lot. Down alley garbage Co. And, how on the earth, they have done business with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Management thinks about only work going... but never thinks about Employees suffering & problems. Double standards are the one which is leading everyone contribute less & exit from the bank earlier. A Management is also an employee & he will also come under the Mountain 1 DAY. Advice cannot change the environment, but at least moral ethics from Islaam shall change, the rest I leave it Allaah (SWT).

    I worked at Arab National Bank

    Pros

    Hierarchy is not a constraint and good ideas are always encouraged regardless of where you are in the organization. Senior management is accessible and more often than not, are willing to listen.

    Cons

    Performance management and appraisals are a real challenge, with no real scientific manner in which the process gets completed - more often than not, its left to the sole judgement of the immediate supervisor as to how much bonus/increments should be given - not enough checks & balances in the system to root out bias.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly a lot more focus needs to be provided to keep employees motivated, wanted and challenged. Its important to be fair and perhaps more important to be completely transparent.
