    I worked at State Bank of India full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a banking giant and the perks are the best among all the PSBs. Growth opportunities are tremendous as a lot of people are retiring in next 3-4 years, which means faster promotions.

    Cons

    It has a branch in every nook and corner of the country and you can posted anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the human resource department.

    I have been working at State Bank of India full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent employer having unparalleled brand; job security is unmatched and therefore, you can work fearlessly. Remuneration, though not very attractive, can give a decent living.

    Cons

    There is hardly any financial incentive for the officials who are working at Top Executive Grades. No work life balance for those who work sincerely and dedicatedly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should attentively listen to the grass root employees to get the genuine feedback instead of being guided by a few sycophants located at the Corporate Centre / LHOs.

    Pros

    State Bank of India is for poor and common people and has more than 11000 branches in India and so many branches abroad in different countries. It is a govt. business specialize bank.

    Cons

    There are so many training Centers where each & every staff got training at all levels by rotation and got chances to develop leadership quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While taking promotion tests of the staff, Management should be confident about the answers and these should be displayed for all the staff, it will realize the candidates about the correct answer and knowledge for other staff.
