    I worked at Oriental Bank of Commerce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It gave me a good work life balance, I never had to be there after office hours and also get my preferred location after just 13 months of joining.

    Cons

    as a nationalized bank you need to be ready for transfer if you want to take a promotion. Also every branch's working differs a bit depending on staff and manager of that branch. Hence every time I get transfer I need to adjust to the new environment
