    Spent a challenging decade at NBAD

    Operation Manager (Former Employee)
    Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsGood salary compared to other local banks.
    High quality assets
    Good place for retirement
    Policies and procedures are available for self learners
    You can grow only if you work SMART
    Promotions are awarded frequently based on performance

    ConsEmpire building leadership style
    Everyone wants to be a manger and no one gets the work done
    Working hard does not help, only smart work will make you stand
    You need to show off ANY work that you have done to be recognised
    Great differentiation in salaries among employees of the same level
    Complete lack of appreciation

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people
    Just Attend the same Leadership courses that you offer to other employees

    It was a great experience working for NBAD.

    Lead Enterprise Systems Architect (Former Employee)
    Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsA lot of opportunities to learn and improve your soft skills, very friendly environment and multi cultural.

    ConsSlow promotion process, the promotion is not always based on how good the staff is but is based on how the HR see your deserve or not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to share your challenges with your staff,
