    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Emirates NBD full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good brand value on your resume' if you want to stay in the UAE

    Cons

    It's a sea of mediocrity and below average managers/ leader, with regards to creativity, people management and true process improvement. They've become very comfortable in doing the same old job for years and every year make very small changes and then pat their backs

    Advice to Management

    Please stop focussing on 'easy to do initiatives' (and calling them great projects) .. You'll never achieve greatness or take the leap to the 'next big thing' in your field unless you are willing to take some risk and be ok with failure - in terms of being truly creative and innovative ... even when it comes to your KPIs or your operational performance.
