    I worked at Bank Hapoalim full-time (Less than a year)

    Very Good Work Life Balance

    Cons

    No strong management support to employees.
    Employees are sometimes belittled
    No clear directions from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to properly train staff members in areas that require special attention. More support and understanding and respect. Employees are treated as expendable. Management also tends to talk down on employees, sets a very bad tone in the work environment

    Pros

    Office location - not sure there is anything else

    Cons

    Low pay, nasty co-workers, management needs to go, outdated technology, benefits

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth and upgrade the Bank's systems. Turnover is high at this Bank for a reason. Management needs to step down.

    I worked at Bank Hapoalim (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great atmosphere for the employee in search of a regular paycheck minus any meaningful or thought-provoking work.
    - Tons of mind-numbing downtime.

    Cons

    Extremely outdated systems & overall mindset. Not the place for millennials in search of furthering their career, as you will quickly be labeled a newbie/secretary/intern due to being at the lower end of the age spectrum - even if your title contains the word 'Executive' in it's labeling. Former role was completely misrepresented, then frowned upon once dissatisfaction with the lesser intensity of the actual role was voiced - citing my training period as the opportunity I had to better understand the role. Training/learning takes up much more time than what the actual day to day break down of tasks eventually became - no way of being able to predict a complete disappearance of challenge once job skills finally mastered. Was completely written off after sharing full transparency of dissatisfaction, instead of working towards an actual intensification of the role or admitting to me being extremely over-qualified for their mindless expectations.

    Overall population in a middle-aged, stuck-in-their-ways, comfort zone bubble of non-negotiables. Not worth any wasted time unless you enjoy time wasted.

    Advice to Management

    It's 2016 - wake up.

    Pros

    Small bank feel, some people nice. Relatively stable and low stress, benefits were decent. Good stepping stone to further a career or stay if you are comfortable with your position.

    Cons

    People should focus on their own jobs rather than complain about others. Some employees think they can get ahead by getting others in trouble like children.

    Pros

    staff care about their work and everyone works together

    Cons

    small firm and not much opportunity to grow

    Pros

    Very good benefits, some competitive products, community involvement and a genuine concern that employees and clients are taken care of.

    Cons

    Difficult to see the long term success of the company in the USA given the lack of a unique strategy for the US market

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management in Tel Aviv should get closer to the staff and the needs of potential clients in the USA and develop a plan for continued success that includes their perspective and input.

    Pros

    I had a great experience at the bank. I started the internship with limited knowledge of finance and they were more than accommodating.

    The S&T Department is not as large as it once was

    Pros

    Good experience, many different aspects of systems that support business lines and products. High level of pressure and timing line.

    Cons

    Nice and friendly environment. Unfortunately management doesn't always follow policy and rules of the bank. No rules for equal professional appreciation and promotion.
