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

    Pros

    New player in the industry with good market share growth potential. Being the biggest bank in India, the sky's the limit for it's overseas operations. Especially with the growing interest in India, the company's potential is indeed unlimitless.

    Cons

    Poor leadership which would not have been tolerated in any other organizations but yet being abused in this otherwise professional & promising organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be prepared to take decisions & ownership, get your hands dirty & be agile to change strategy in reaction to different circumstances. Engage with & keep your promises made to staff!

    Pros

    Security, growth, good income as well enjoy the stream.

    Cons

    frequent Transfers away from home station. No HR implementation in real sense, there is lot left from the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bank should do away with the present promotion policy in which a few officers are never considered for promotion but they are otherwise giving the Bank good service and business. All is based on ARCs which are written by their bosses who never go in the good deeds of these officers. Further bank should think seriously about the frequent transfers in which too only few officers are time and again placed in difficult areas while others enjoy near to home postings.

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

    Pros

    nothing good as such. But since ppl believ as sbi , a brand , to work wit, I wud say I got selected , unfortunately.To cherish some, there are some good campaigns wit good incentives. U will get to know there are so many things to learn as one cn find various diversified fields in sbi. Good training will be provided to employees to equip them to latest technologies. Flexible transfer policies.

    Cons

    Huhh, I told u tat one will get good incentives but not for worthy. Money wont reach the truly desrved ones. They will equip employees wit latest technologies by giving rigorous trainings but wit no practical implementation. If u r very enthusiastic at work, thn colleagues will make u hate ur job. For eg, wit enthusiasm ull b finishing all t work, wht colleagues will do, is, they stop working, they will make u believe as if they r nt capable to do any work and wt u ll do , u ll go n help them, problem starts there , everyones burden on ur head, and you are gone,.!!! No work rotation. Seniors try to dominate( nt everywhr bt mostly) Branch managers are the most frustrated ones, they really in need of good training to be good leaders, they try least to motivate employees. there are so many things to learn, but where's t encouragement, if a youngstr, or t one who is enthusiastic to learn new things or new joinee wishes to learn, thn manager says u neednt goto training.u cn stay in ofc, finish of ur remaining work evn though u r up to date wit ur duties. forcibly flexible trfr policies , bad management , I jus hate those HRs , who doesnt pay heed to their employees concerns. I dono wht thy r concerned abt atleast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to encourage good workers. pay heed to employees problems esp. youngstrs,You need to retain the youngsters. Future is based on them else it would be an obstacle for the very existence of t organisation in the near future. make sure young enthusiastic employees are given every chance to learn, given a platform to exhibit their talent, it will b kind of support to thm to lov their organisation, respct the organisation.
