    I have been working at Bank Alfalah full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bank Alfalah is a really good place for starting one's career. Overall work environment and job benefits varies from department to department; however front office employees tend to have better working environment and lucrative growth opportunities. The salaries and compensation benefits are market competitive.

    Cons

    Well, the nature of work can be also be boring and stagnant, depending upon department. Work life balance is really poor in back offices and departments having more operational tasks, tend to result in poor job satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Although Alfalah recently outsourced an employee engagement survey, but the survey failed to serve the purpose. It is suggested to have more specific survey with regards to job satisfaction etc to obtain more relative feedback from employees.
