      Former Employee, less than 1 year

      Good 'foot-in-the-door' opportunity for someone looking to make a career in banking but cannot be a career highlight.

      Pros

      Convenient location, close to the freeways. Small office work culture where interpersonal interactions are relaxed and informal. Plenty of 'learn on the job' experience opportunity.

      Cons

      No work-life balance. Poor pay scales. Poor documentation/standardization of business practices.

      Pros

      Good salary structure, full medical coverage, allowances cover a good amount and are tax free for you. Leased house is a great positive thing. The brand name associated with it, at least in rural and tier 2,3 cities, gives you immense respect in the society. SBI senior people are called for inaugaration at many events.

      Cons

      Work life balance. If you are good at work, be prepared to handle work of more than 2 people. Bank is run by 20% staff and balance 80% boast about their doings. Postings in rural areas can be very far flung.
