    I worked at Punjab National Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    salaries and perks at the market level

    Cons

    You are not allowed to take leaves easily. Weekends are working many times without any compensation. No concept of work-life balance. Long/Extended working hours till night without any overtime/compensation. A lot of old and useless managers still in the system. Inefficient staff and procedures. Top Management has no idea what's happening on the ground. Transfer policies are the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your staff as human first. They have a personal life too.
