I worked at Gulf International Bank
Pros – Small firm to work for enabling many opportunities to perform different job functions and learn about other parts of the business. Employees are supported with above average benefits and holiday time. Company is very understanding of needs of employee to take care of family and personal appointments. No problem getting a flexible schedule to deal with medical appointments or unexpected illnesses.
Work force is truly international with employees from North America, Continental Europe, Middle East, as well as UK. A good place to be if you want this exposure. Many employees fluent in 2-3 languages.
Cons – IT and support systems among the best in the busines. Management puts a priority on supporting systems.
Advice to Senior Management – Continue with the good work.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Gulf International Bank
Pros – Small wholesale and investment bank with easy access to the senior management, and good shareholder (Government of Saudi Arabia) when needed
Cons – The bank is very valnerable to the economic downcycles and political issues in the Gulf. The Bank business model is no longer competent as it rely mainly on capital market for funding.
Advice to Senior Management – The new management should listen to its employees. Woring on new strategy should be communicated to the employees and a resolve to the funding problem should be developed.
