    I worked at Syndicate Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Job security, good working conditions, wonderful staff, home atmosphere, pension benefits loan facilities , good compensation .
    It is possible to have a wonderful work life balance if you are a clerk, as a junior managerial staff younger generation who are more tech savvy can breeze through the job, opportunities are high in the next few years as many people are retiring...younger generation who would like to work and to enjoy leisure should grab the opportunity...

    Cons

    understaffed, overworked, stressed, and horrible transfer policies...anywhere in rural India, very long working hours, people retiring and vacancies not being filled up fast

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please help the junior managerial staff by employing more people to help them... give proper training to older staff who you need for their experience but who lack in technical training to meet the rapid technological changes
