    I have been working at Bank of Baroda full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) A Government Job, just for namesake.
    2) The job somehow keeps you busy unlike construction jobs where you get paid for just standing or some IT consultant where you get for making excel files and remaining time just for gossips.
    3) Better perks than other PSBs.

    Cons

    1) Worst management I any organization I have ever worked.
    2) Higher management forces a single officer branch officer to engage in just marketting of TPP, else you are not allowed to go home.
    3) Long working hours.
    4) Frequent transfers. They knowingly ask your preferential place of posting so that they can throw you from the farthest branch from that place. Hence, there is NO PERSONAL LIFE.
    5) The most unsafe and insecure job, as due to fraudulent activities of miscreants, only staffs are forced to pay the loss to the bank.
    6) Completely employee-UNFRIENDLY.
    7) Promotions are a trap, but you ll be made to fall into the trap anyway, even if you fail in promotion tests or even remain absent.
    8) No leaves, once you become a Branch Manager.
    9) Overseas postings are very biased.
    10) No laws against protection from unruly customers. The staff is suspended till that unruly customer gives a satisfaction letter in writing. Hence public thrashing staff by misusing the freedom Bank has given to public.
    11) Staff forced to enter into weird absurd campaigns where higher management wants staff to do some QR code transaction forcibly from their smartphones, even if customer is not interested.
    12) No such employee harassment protection cell, as HR is also the one who is there to harass you to an extent you have never even imagined.
    13) Higher management wants officers at branch to beg to the public so that the bank can meet PM Modi's expectations, just to show in paper and real development is zero. Thats how IMF showcases high GDP for India by seeing just papers.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into the matter, as your immediate juniors who are sitting like BABUs (not just the RM, but the team) are harassing the hard-working staffs working at the branches. They themselves are doing no work other than dialing buttons of branch phone numbers.
    This is doing no benefit but tarnishing the image of such a prestigious, the second largest PSB of India.
    Recommending you to post these specialist officers, even HR, to work in all kind of branches(from rural to metro) during their probation period so that they atleast get to know the real situation of branches.

    I have been working at Bank of Baroda part-time

    Pros

    Humans can usually only write by hand comfortably 50–60 WPM; Typing with some training can be easily accomplished at 80–120 WPM

    Cons

    On that same note, typing has become second nature for many of us and we find ourselves mindlessly typing as we listen in class, without actually engaging. When we find ourselves guilty of this, we walk out of class having next to no idea of the lesson at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to understand the business in which you are operating.

    Develop time-management skills.

    Practice active listening skills.

    Know how to motivate and lead employees.

    Continue your own training and development.

    Don't stay isolated in the office.

    Don't pretend you know all the answers.

    Don't take all the credit.

    Don't expect employees to be perfect.

    Learn to delegate effectively
