    I worked at State Bank of India full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn different aspects of banks but only if you are placed at corporate center.
    Good workplace for Women

    Cons

    Highly Bureaucratic i.e all depends who is your boss... Management at Circle Levels is very unfriendly with B-School Grads.
    Corrupt Officials
    No Career Path : You will rarely have a subordinates at circle level.
    Comparatively Low Salary for B-School Grads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make Appraisal more transparent and objective at Circle Level. Narrow Minded Functionaries & Anti MTs are interpreting appraisal according their own tastes.
    Don't let it be a revenge mechanism or a tool to get work done from contractual employee especially in Wholesale Banking.

    Should be a lot more concerned about new entrants.

    Pros

    Job security... Nothing else !!!

    Cons

    Don't be over enthusiast.. Top Management is there to curb it all !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We don't want nightmare of a chairman like Mr. Pratip C. Chaudhari ever again to lead an organization like SBI. Top management must learn the art of appreciating junior employees. Also in tough times, junior management is taken to task while top management always remains shielded. Get away from bureaucratic setup.. Sooner the better !!!
