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

    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.

      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.
