    I worked at Allahabad Bank

    Pros

    Very good front desk staff and managing good customer service whole over the India. High percentage of young generation employees.

    Cons

    Full of Unionism. Errant Higher officials without any achievement . Officer employees are very much dissatisfied. Executive have no positive thinking. Spending their tenures rudderless.

    Advice to Management

    Build a secret MIS to select the actual achievers. Promote only those officers who are fruitful to the Bank. Number of senior executives from Scale IV to Scale VII to be reduced for centralization of command. Reduce the Unionism base and transfer only those who are non-achievers. Performers should be posted at their appropriate place for the benefit of the bank. Vigilance system is semi-defunct, should be energized....

    Advice to Management

    Management of this bank depends largely upon government instructions. They are helpless they have very limited authority to implement big changes CEO Mallikarjun Rao is trying hard to change things, but it is very difficult for him

    I have been working at Allahabad Bank full-time

    Pros

    Some kind of job security, better than some pvt companies at low or middle level, equal opportunities in promotion as there is no restriction, one can start from bottom level and can become CMD of the Bank.

    Cons

    Work stress and pressure from many levels like customer behavior, transfer policy to anywhere in India, target pressure, NPA and PNPA pressure, Credit pressure, risk factor as money is directly involved. At this very high level of risk, compensation/salary is on the lower side.

    Advice to Management

    More HR friendly policies should be made to decrease the stress.
