    I worked at Syndicate Bank for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Any professional working in Syndicate Bank will come to know the end to end process of the project. Since it is a Government Organization and is looking for Upgrading the Technologies, One can see the whole process of migration activities which is really an honor to be part of the migration process.

    Cons

    There ae no mandatory Trainings and Certifications. Also, the process for getting the requests for training will take longer duration and may not be favorably considered. And at the last, the persons who were working with the organization will not be trained at the current pace where the outside technologies were progressing.

    Advice to Management

    Train the staff and improve the quality of the output by appointing the appropriate team leaders.

No work life balance 3. Branches has less infrastructure and resources. Even cash counting machines are not available in many branches. 4. No flexibility for vacation as the replacement is seldom available. 5. High risk job as anything missing...

    Advice to Management

    Management very well knows the problems of employees. Same time, also know the management cannot bring any fruitful results as this is a government bank. Hence, would not waste my time giving advice to the management.
