      I have been working at Emirates NBD full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Great brand in the Middle East Exposure to interesting work

      Cons

      Internal processes are cumbersome and impede agility Inefficiencies Lead to no work life balance. It’s not uncommon to be at the office till 9pm daily There is a hire and fire culture People are afraid to say no so they say yes to everything and deliver nothing Everyone is always late for meetings. There is no respect for anyone’s time

      Advice to Management

      It’s pointless is you are preaching an Agile and technology transformation if you are not investing in a cultural and internal process transformation

      I worked at Emirates NBD full-time

      Pros

      1- A brand that allows you to innovate and think outside the box. 2- Great working environment. 3- Great work life balance

      Cons

      1- Lots of protocols and bureaucracy. 2- UAE nationals are preferred over expats for job promotions and benefits. Great if you're a UAE national, but you might want to explore a career in the private sector for better growth if you're an expat.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in those who want to grow.

        Pros

        There are very few friendly people

        Cons
