Many thing there is no rules and regulation.in practical double checking not happening. Top are sitting only because of seniority. Personal Department is the worst. So many unwanted persons are working in controlling office. In branch mostly ladies are working that...

    Pros

    Good staff benefits. But bad future.. Nothing is there to say called pros. If you are not motivated enough to work u will survive in this bank

    Cons

    Worst banking culture... No proper support for branch heads... Neither from branch staff nor from top management. Branch manager can do nothing against non performing subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a good culture and working environment.

    I worked at Syndicate Bank

    Pros

    Job security, opportunity to learn, good training programs

    Cons

    Lack of transparency in promotion and transfer processes resulting in dissatisfied employees with bad work culture and customer service, bringing bad reputation to bank.

    Advice to Management

    Many senior staff lack knowledge of many spheres of banking but are promoted due to favoritism resulting in inefficient management. Judge your own self as to what was/is your contribution before judging your subordinates on various parameters.

      I worked at Syndicate Bank full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      One of the best banking institution in India established in 1926. It has virtually trasnformed the rural economy by introducing the unique Pigmy Account where the representative of the bank goes to the doorsteps of the account holder and collects a small sum every day.

      Cons

      During last 2-3 decades the bank is lagging behind in all spheres like customer service, opening of new branches, business growth in general including profits. Shares are not growing compared to the banking sector.

      Advice to Management

      Now a days the CMD's and ED's are in office for 2-3 years and they are least bother about development of the bank. They enjoy the last phase of their career in traveling and enjoying other benefits from the bank rather than sincerely making efforts to take the institution to greater heights. These appoint ments should be atleast for a period of 5 years.

      For those who feel institution is last but individual first, it will be tough going along. You may have to work in rural interior places facing hardship, but it will be for a short period of 3 years.

      Advice to Management

      Involve grass-root level officers too in formulating work/ job charts, specifications, targets, goals etc Take feed back and advise from recognized Officers Association in all the policy matters.
