    Pros

    Great place to learn, work environment is good

    Cons

    poor salary, lack of knowledge in top level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salary to retain talents. Also get rid of pool of former SCB people. They are not worthy of holding such titles as VP and above. Give the hard workers from below a chance, you wont regret it.

    I worked at BRAC Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A large portion of the shares of the bank is owned BRAC, one of the largest NGO in the world. The noble values of BRAC heavily govern the values of the bank which makes the bank exceptional in many ways. The bank is also an active member of Global Alliance for Banking on Values. People, profit and planet remains in the core of guiding principle. Accordingly, the bank is pioneer in setting SME business in the country and it constantly strive to bringing the banking to the unbanked mass in a third world country like Bangladesh. Beside its leadership role in SME banking, the bank is equally competitive in all other traditional business wing. The bank is also known as one of the most tech-savvy banking in the country. The bank has a huge delivery channel through 466 touch point around the country. The work setting of the company makes the bank attractive for potential employees.

    Cons

    In the recent trend of crunch of capital adequacy bank as well struggles to low cost fund to constantly feed the asset growth of the company. Current economic condition of the country makes challenge of continual growth of asset and low cost liability harder. Change management and people management are the two areas where the organization has scope to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management may engage professionals good at dealing with people management as well as expert to steer the change management successfully.

    Low pay
    Too much politics
    Department Heads are there because of the number of years they have been with the company rather than by their quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after the people who are at the bottom level
    Increase salary to industry average at the least

    I have been working at BRAC Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good environment with a comparatively younger team.
    Management is from good backgrounds.
    A fast growing young bank. So, a lot of things to learn are around.

    Cons

    Pooooor salary structure! specially for existing employees at low-mid level.
    A little shortsighted for such a big organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have a closer & deeper look at the lower-mid level staffs (AVP & Below). These people are the wheels of this organization and they are not happy right now...the current situation will never be overcome unless something radically changes soon. And time is running out.
