    Former Employee - Marketing/Sales Officer in Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago)

    I worked at Republic Bank Limited full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth through internal advertising of vacancies, exceptional training and development, incentives for studies in banking and finance, paid vacation, profit sharing, health plan, pension, vacation savings and uniforms.

    Cons

    Salaries for a similar position within the job market tend to be higher. In addition, at the branch level, managers can have favorites which may prevent opportunities for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Republic Bank Limited as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It pays the bill, mostly

    Cons

    It's advancement protocol is non-existent, or if it exist and is practiced, then it sucks. It's generally not about who can do the job or giving everybody a chance, its about who is liked my junior and senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more proactive approach to managing. Listen to your ground staff, they more than anyone else know what's going on (good & bad) and how to improve the environment so both staff and customers have a great experience

    I worked at Republic Bank Limited full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff, easy to get information

    Cons

    management doesn't know what the staff deal with. let a manager spend a week on the customer service floor and see how it feels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your staff. They are the face of your company and if they are unhappy, the customers will know and it will reflect on management. without your staff support you will fail to achieve your goals

    I have been working at Republic Bank Limited

    Pros

    Pays the bills ....... just barely

    Cons

    Poor Salary especially for qualified staff
    Subjective performance management report
    Promotions given to "friends" of management and not necessarily on performance/qualifications
    Rigorous negotiations for minute increases for regular staff while the bank makes billions in profits and management reap the benefits
    Strict compliance to time-off which staff must beg to obtain
    These are just some of the cons ... the list is very exhaustive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at other companies from abroad where staff are treated well and remunurated well. Staff of this bank can't even afford mortgages and loans, the very products that we sell. Treat staff properly and productivity/profits will increase.

    I worked at Republic Bank Limited

    Pros

    For one thing the hours are regular: 8am to 4/5pm. So you have lots of time to live your non-work related life.

    Cons

    Promotion and professional growth seemed to be as much about loyalty, connections, as about merit. There was not an opportunity for me to use my technical quantitative skills as much as I would have liked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that management were actually pretty competent and fair. However working for multiple managers can take its toll if the managers don't have someone to coordinate work loads.
