    Pros

    Nothing.. All is not well in SBI

    Cons

    Bad transfer policy, bad management, work pressure, low number of staff @ branches, very bad working conditions for staff @ rural branches and more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am working @ SBI and was posted @ a rural branch 5 and a half years ago and I am still struck there. Undergone surgery 3 times (2010, 2012, 2014). They did not even consider temporary transfer also. I have to travel 6 hours (up & down) to reach my branch. Really feeling let down.

    I have been working at State Bank of India full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its like a family here with each branch establishing their foot in the banking industry just like an individual company but growing under one tree. People are empathetic and your bosses very much encouraging.

    Cons

    SBI have many training institutes in different parts of the country but I opine SBI doesn't train its employees on a regular basis which is very much essential for a better performance where the bank will be benefitted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training sessions in a year have to be increased and they have to be made as short as possible. To avoid travel costs, all training centers should be equipped with certain audio visual facilities where the teaching can be telecasted in a live session

    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.
