    I have been working at Punjab National Bank full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The biggest reason to work for the bank it's that you have the opportunity to travel to a new location every 3 years and on each promotion. Another huge pro is the job security.

    Cons

    The working hours can be really long and challenging with the shortage of staff. Creativity at the work place is limited owing to a bureaucratic management style.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage creativity at the workplace. Move from bureaucracy to a more open working style so that change can take place overnight instead of years to implement a simple changeover

    I worked at Punjab National Bank full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    salaries and perks at the market level

    Cons

    You are not allowed to take leaves easily. Weekends are working many times without any compensation. No concept of work-life balance. Long/Extended working hours till night without any overtime/compensation. A lot of old and useless managers still in the system. Inefficient staff and procedures. Top Management has no idea what's happening on the ground. Transfer policies are the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your staff as human first. They have a personal life too.
