      I worked at Emirates NBD full-time

      Pros

      At Emirates NBD, the organizational culture fosters good values and business ethics.

      Cons

      Downsides are few. Perhaps salary scale may not be as rewarding as with other financial institutions in Dubai's market.

      Pros

      Very light work schedule and flexibility of hours. People are generally friendly shorter hours during ramadan Get to see a lot of how the company runs

      Cons

      -Very poorly managed - Interns are not considered to be of much important - difficulty getting recommendation letter due to company policy - Interns are not valued - Average food

      Advice to Management

      Improve internal communication and beauracracy. Have a more defined recruiting process that applies to those who are just graduating. Improve communication between the different departments.

      Neutral Outlook

      I have been working at Emirates NBD full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      If you are not ambitious and content playing corporate politics just to feed your family this bank could be a great place. It is a safer bank than most peers in the UAE thanks to its size, legacy and government relationships.

      Cons

      Full of retired bankers in the senior management and suck-up players who stick to their seats in the next layer. Hard working, ambitious types who try to disrupt the game get kicked-out sooner or later once their juice is sucked out dry.

      Advice to Management

      Nothing. You are the source of the toxic culture. You tolerate and promote it. And in the uncompetitive banking landscape you don't really up your mediocre game.
