    Big universal bank, plenty of opportunities to learn every aspect of banking, opportunities to work from most corners of India.

    Cons

    Promotion process is not very objective, and connections and networking is more important than your performance at the work place.

    Objectivity in promotion process must be built if the institution has to be a world class one.

    Pros

    Training at PNB is one of the best in banks in India. You will get a good exposure if you can show that you can work in credit or forex.

    Cons

    High pressure and some times you are forced to compromise on your values. the work life balance is absolutely worst and you will spend atleast 12 hours at work if you are in credit and above scale 2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly improve the pay and benefits structure as most of us younger guys are leaving for greener pastures. Kindly improve on the work conditions and committee for reviews.
