    Pros

    Good and safe culture for old employees in the system.

    Cons

    There are two different cultures existing in the bank. One is of people having long seasoning and another is for new. Regardless of fact that how much you are qualified and experienced, these old supervisors will treat you as freshers. Even sometimes a seasoned grade junior could create problem for new people. Definition of new continues for at least 3 years but there are few who survives for these many years.
    Daily so many times you will get threatened for job in very abusive and insulting manner. Taunting and dejection will be part of your life. Any day your boss or super boss will ask you to leave. If you have any innovative idea or you are expressive, for sure your supervisor will thrash you upto a level from where you will forget even your glorious past in previous organisations. Memos and counselling mails are frequent here. You can not start even a single day with motivation. If you will call your HR manager for help then there are 99% possibilities of finding your boss sitting with the HR personal and the entire discussion will get converted as a counselling meet for your improvement. You will feel the heat for many days and referred by them on occasions. If you are a Branch Manager and for some financial benefits if you join here then you even can't count the treatment ways. You have to work as sales officer. Your budget or annual targets are nothing. Even if you are achieving all, your boss could ask you to leave the job without any reasons. Noone will come forward to help you. They will ditch you showing you a way to bigger branch but when you join you find a newly opened branch with very few untrained team. From the day one you will start listening bad words and threatening. "A REAL graveyard of Talents".
    Cheap behaviour is common among senior people who are old in the system. They have high egos. They behave as owner of bank and push you all the times very hard. Not a single motivation. Health will go for a toss. "Shrinking mind with sinking heart is routine."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please spread a culture where none could threaten anyone for job. Uncertainty creates feeling of demoralising insecurity. Demotivated people work like a dead wood. These new experienced people have joined here after showing their bright credential leaving everything behind and if supervisors taunt and threaten them, they will not at all contribute. Few people have become don here and created their syndicate of comfort. They are playing openly with the reputation and culture of bank.
