      Pros

      1.Its PSB so you have job security. 2.You get to work in various profiles. 3.Opportunity to work at foreign locations.

      Cons

      1.Transferable job, transfers can happen at very remote locations all over India . 2.Future promotions will get slow now onwards due to lac of vacancies at higher scales and also due to mass recruitments and promotions happened in last 5 to 7 years. It will be a bottleneck kind of situation. 3.Nepotism is rampant at all levels and specially at corporate offices. 4.Talent is not always valued by higher ups. Your bosses are also public sector employees then don't care if talented people are under-utilised or not utilised at all. 5.Salary will increase once every 5 years by process of Bipartite settlement. The process which starts in every 5 years takes at least 3 years to complete, so you get new salary after 8 years.In between these 8 years if you are not promoted , then only rise you get is by way of dearness allowance which is like increase of around 2 or 3 k in salary after every quarter.Sometimes Bank also reduces DA so instead of rise your salary gets reduced for no fault of yours. 6.Salary of all employees in same scale will remain same irrespective of job they are doing, Eg.If you are a dealer in treasury and earning crores of rupees of profit for bank you will still get salary as that of person working in rural branch whose work is to only pass the daily transactions if that person's and your scale is same.

      Pros

      It's a nationalised bank, you get many responsibilities and different roles at a time. You 30 days paid leaves, 30 sick leave, 12 days Casual Leaves.

      Cons

      Being loaded by n number of responsibilities reduces your efficiency. No. Of customers per employee are quite high compared to pvt sector banks. Hence too much of work load and pressure to achieve the targets of govt schemes.

      Pros

      Getting salary on 26th of every month

      Cons

      No proper training provided. Employee are dragged into a sea of huge unpleasant wave without even training. No proper IT infrastructure. Connectivity issue persist in most of the branches. Sometimes there is a horrible situation in the branches flooded with the customers. We are left in a sea of sharks with no weapon. Sharks that are in a form of customers with personal expectations and other one are management which gives you targets every day. You either live with it or when you try to oppose you will be going to ruin yourself only. The problem with the ruling government in developing countries is that they want all their social responsibilities fulfilled through their PSB units. Cons are many which we witness daily in our working . But still for bread and butter we have no other option.
