State Bank of India

State Bank of India Employee Review

High pressure, zero work life balance

The experience of your working at SBI will vary greatly based on where and in what vertical you are posted. But mostly the work will be high pressure and challenging without an iota of work life balance. It will be difficult to manage family due to frequent transfers. The HR Dept is a joke and bosses will only be interested in how much cross selling you can do. Perks and pay are good so you have to continue for a life of security but full of misery.

Sbi is the best bank in india. Takes maximum care of employees, retirees and customers. I feel work satisfaction. As an employee I got an opportunity to serve the public.
