    A public sector bank with defined policy for advancement of carrer and pay scales. Management is good and takes lot of steps to motivate employees. Good business potential for further growth of bank.

    Cons

    Employees are transferable all over India and have to face hardships. Branches in rural areas have inadequate infrastructure and manpower,which result in hardship to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Business potential everywhere is very good. Supporting branches with adequate manpower will be very much helpful to tap the business and curtailing NPAs.
