    Pros

    Direct communication with senior management. They were willing to listen to my suggestions and my rationale for these recommendations.

    Cons

    IT systems were outdated and slow but management was working on updating when I left. Access to industry analysis tools was limited. Salary level during my tenure was a little below market for my actual job duties.

    I worked at Israel Discount Bank full-time

    Pros

    Very stable place to work at, if you get permanent role, you could work there all way to pension. The risk department has the best and smartest workers of the bank.

    Cons

    It hard to progress your career in such a big and old school place. The development of the career is very limited, as well as your salary.

    Advice to Management

    The management should look at each employee separately and not as part of the whole corporation. All salary raises and development is equal, no matter how you perform.

    Pros

    supportive staff, comfortable working hours, interesting job with a wide range of learning options, very good for the resume if you choose to move on to another job.

    Cons

    "bad blood" between the management and the employees , the bank considers as the less efficient in the banking system in israel due to high salaries, among the rest. new management strategy to cut human resources specialy among the senior staff by offering early retirement.

    Advice to Management

    change customers behavior in the branches. use the prime location of some branches to change the way of thinking customers have about spending time in the branch. be fair to the employees , remember that your salaries are high as well.
