    I worked at Allied Bank Pakistan (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Allied Bank is the 5th largest bank in Pakistan. In 2004, the bank was acquired by a business group which helped turn around its fortunes.

    It is a great place to work because:
    - Embraces diversity
    - Has a strong corporate culture, based on values such as ethics, teamwork, sustainability,
    - Provides market competitive remuneration
    - Offers cross functional training to employees to propel their careers

    Cons

    The bank has become very conservative in its decision making and operations which may compromise its growth. It has also adopted a very centralized decision making style which reduces its response time to market events.
