Diversity in business leads to overall development.

The overall experience was good at SBI. You get to explore extreme locations while working. The HR policies are good on paper but it needs to be strongly implemented at ground level to give better work life balance

Not satisfactory

SBI may not be the best place to work for people with an analytical bent of mind looking for analytically challenging jobs. Department heads usually don't promote analytical thinking related work.

Good compensation but heavy work ...

Have to deal with many customers of the Bank. Learned dealing with varied customer needs. Excellent Management. Workplace culture is average. Dealing with difficult customers is the hardest part of the job.

Slightly better that how govt. offices in India work

very slow, too many rudimentary processes and lots can be changed, but a huge Bank that still manages somehow to work with certain amount of efficiency. Slow in - terms of adoption of latest technology

Workplace full of Politics

Timings are rigid. HR is not supportive and rude. Management make you feel inferior. Power Politics in full swing. Big Brand with Small Value for employees. Not Recommended. Think twice before joining.

Work culture is highly hierarchical and lacks openness

Positives : Well established organisation that has a deep history and enduring process flow. Brand image is reputed and penetration in market is absolute. The level of knowledge of its HR is a benchmark as per industry norms and it has been integrating its work force to new generation technological challenges. Negatives : Though the organisation is one of the most leading banks in India, it lacks drive to instigate a cultural and behavioural change that would translate the organisation to be one of the leading banks on global arena. The centre driven organisation has too many bottlenecks that hinder growth and create an environment of cognitive criticism. Over standardisation of process flow makes the place dull to work in.

Pros

Good Salary, perks and other benefits.

Cons

Extended working hours due to over standardised and delicacy of work flow

Surrounded by helpful people

Had my own cabin, the best part of that work. Got to learn the workings of a bank and had access to all the documents they possess. Interaction with clients and staff was the daily requirement. The most enjoyment I had to work with them was when there was a party for someone new joining in or someone getting a promotion.

Good exposures

The job gives you a great learning curve but you have to ready for immense work pressure. Usually there is long working hours with occasional cancelled holidays. But the bank hosts the brightest brains in Credit and forex, so you may have a great opportunity to learn stuff

Pros

Exposure, Benefits and remuneration

Cons

Work life balance

Productive work place

Good place to learn. Organisation provided me with wide ranging opportunities to work in varied fields of banking apart from class room and on the job trainings. Provided opportunities to work at different places as well including overseas posting which helped in widening of my horizon. The responsibilities are highly demanding as the bank has been making efforts to compete with best peers in the industry.

Pros

Job Security and good Status

Cons

Very poor compensation package not in commensurate with the responsibilities

A progressive place to be

You get a chance to learn the basics but you have to be proactive about almost everything. Much better than what you would expect at a government organization.
