    The current environment is an absolute nightmare, especially with the current Saudi management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsProbably the pay but that really doesn't help for more than a year
    Good for people who can be blind to whatever is happening to them or around them, and people who do not work and wants to join only for money....of course you never know when you will be kicked out

    ConsExtreme Mismanagement, Serious decision issues from Top management,

    Used to be a good bank to work for

    Senior Portfolio Manager (Current Employee) Manama (Bahrain)

    ProsSmall wholesale and investment bank with easy access to the senior management, and good shareholder (Government of Saudi Arabia) when needed

    ConsThe 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 ManagementThe 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.

    A solid place to work.

    Analyst (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsSmall 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.

    ConsIT and support systems among the best in the busines. Management puts a priority on supporting systems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
