Good place to work. But be ready for transfers always. Very good of joining as clerical. Not good for officers. Work depends on the branch you work. Good luck

Self growth is possible!

I joined the Bank in 1982 and found it nice and good place to work, learn and earn.I passed my C.A.I.I.B in 1989 and got three increments and an appreciation letter from the Regional Manager.I have taken Housing loan, vehicle loan etc.which were paid promptly and there is an excitement when you get your first House, vehicle etc.and I thank Indian Overseas Bank.I left the bank in 1994 for going abroad and had done some good jobs there but still the work culture, trainings I got etc.from Indian Overseas Bank are evergreen in my mind.

Psu bank

Good bank to grow with, just that it is state run Tamil Nadu bank so can be transferred to South India any time of your life. Otherwise a secure organisation to grow.

Very unhelpful management

The work is very fast paced and stresfull. Beware of the office politics and forget about the finishing times. My experience was not good at all. Unfair maternity policies.

Best working environment

I enjoyed working there for the nearly five years. No pressure no stress I ever felt and I had the freedom to speak about my problems and issues. Getting transfer to a desired place was not so difficult. Wonderful working experience

Indian Overseas Bank is one of the Best Banks in the world. Bank is identified by personslised Good customers' service.

The founders of Indian Overseas Bank have given a strong base. The Bank is famous for its specilised customer's service. I served the Bank for 35 years.9 months. Good working culture is there. Here and there one may find some mischivous persons (including some high rank officers and executives). On the whole the staff is hard working and career oriented. Normally customer friendly. Good staff is the secreat of the tremondus growth of the Bank.
