    Pros

    Many if you belong to their caste.

    Cons

    The worst people work here as your seniors. They feel its their family property and you are a parasite encroaching on it. People who had joined as sweepers and attenders are now Managers and Executives in this bank. No education nor manners. They will abuse new comers just so that you leave and go. If you belong to their caste only you will be treated well. They think transferring employees is the only job they have to do. You will be transferred from pillar to post every time. Semi educated and semi skilled management. They have put up branches were more animals found than humans. Only place probably employees refuse promotion, because in the name of promotion you will be transferred to a place were their same caste employees don't want to go. You loose 100 rs in your branch, they will spend one lakh rupees on air travel to come and search those 100 rs. Majority of Branch heads( the old ones) dont have manners how to behave in public. Please stay away from this bank as both as an employee as well as a customer. You have to forget your family and home if join here. Only join if your belong to their caste.

    Advice to Management

    Go learn management.

    Pros

    Can't find any other than job security

    Cons

    Well there are a lot.
    Understaffed. Even if they get enough staff top management doesn't know how to utilize man power which only results in stress and overload at employees.
    Transfer Policy- they transfer you to wherever they want at whatever time they decide.
    Most of the time there will be a technical problem.No network, server error and so on.
    Top management's attitude towards other staff-They think the bank staff are their minions.
    Very poor compensations and allowances-compared to all other PSBs this one has the least.Stingy.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't stop RULING the bank and start MANAGING it the bank is going to go down for sure.

    I have been working at Vijaya Bank full-time

    Pros

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing. It says I need to enter 5 words. Vijaya Bank isnt worth that

    Cons

    Too many. I will list a few

    1. Half the time, there is no network and you look like a fool in front of the customers
    2. Very cunning management in Regional offices
    3. Poor Human resource management. In fact the worst i have ever seen in my career
    4. Malfunctioning system. Bank credits wrong salary to its own employees, in spite of taking all certificates, they have not credited graduates salary, poor branch locations(believe me these people place branches in most useless areas), HRMS has been down for over a month now. They need to introspect their infrastructure
    5. Bad Union culture. Unions decide where a person gets posted, so if you do not know anyone in the union then be ready for scapegoat treatment

    Advice to Management

    Most of your next generation employees dont keep their money in the bank account, so think about the public. Clean up Chennai RO
