      "Do not work here"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at National Bank of Abu Dhabi

        Pros

        Tax free. Some decent managers. Bank offers generous discounts to staff.

        Cons

        Too many managers completely focused on politics and empire building. The bank does not follow its own HR policies, and managers can get away with ridiculous self-serving decisions, and often do. HR is constantly looking for ways to pay you less also by stripping benefits from staff.

        Advice to Management

        Senior management need to be on the lookout for teams with high turnover, and investigate the causes rather than blindly believing managers who have form for bad behaviour.
