    I have been working at Arab National Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money they pay me is great.
    I am doing less than 25% of the work I was used to, so yes I do have a lot of free time to study new stuff on my own...

    Cons

    1. Managers are just that - managers, and not leaders! Most of them seem uneducated, and cannot be fair.
    2. Managers are like dictators - do what I say, and keep your "awesome, amazing, efficient" idea to yourself!
    3. Most of the colleagues are dull due to the dull and unmotivated environment!
    4. They hate proactiveness! really... !
    5. YoY Bonus is like peanuts! It's like giving a lollipop to a child!
    6. No chance of Career progression, unless you become besties of your manager, and do not concentrate on what you are hired for!

    I can keep on and on...

    Advice to Management

    You need leadership training - desperately!
    Stop being comfortable, and try to be visionaries!
    Motivate the team and...

    no point, you just dont care!

    I have been working at Arab National Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the top Saudi bank. Has best compensation policy, which is the ability to attract, retain, reward and motivate the talented people needed for the long term success of my bank.

    Cons

    The only draw back is that it doesn't have any office outside Saudi Arabia. Besides, the current expansion is limited to Saudi Arabia.

    Advice to Management

    Expansion outside Saudi Arabia will attract more business avenues and exposure of international experience to the bank. The bank will have global experience.
