Low trust environmet

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It takes a lot of work to get even single things done. Work environment is modern with great facilities. Too much of bureaucracy, politics and heavily relationship driven.

Pros

Good reputation, Job Security, Employee friendly, Learning and Development

Cons

Toxic culture, silos, lack of trust/collaboration, self-centered leadership

Fun,Easy, extremely fast paced .

need to have a good attitude , dont be discouraged or demoralized easily and the job will be a breeze for you . be independent dont always rely on others and you will be fine. if u are introvert this is perfect, 0 interaction with colleagues cos u will be on the phone all day . good and bad depends on how u see it . satisfying when customer compliments or writes in to the bank to recognise your service / patience

Pros

good welfare packages

Cons

ot often but at own pace .

Good name for your CV and that’s it

Stressful and fast paced. Not much career advancement. The pay is low and will only give more bonus to senior management.Great company culture where there will be social events to take part in.Can use company’s name as a springboard for better package at other banks.

Fun colleagues but stressful due to infra

Deal with infrastructure migration. So your work challenges arises. Competing department also creates politics for the projects with similar agenda. But team mates are generally fun..

Good strategy but not executing well

Nice company policy, but depend on management preference. Nice to work proactively and hard working. Work hard is better than work smart to work here.

toxic environment

Toxic working environment, all colleagues are unfriendly, they talk behind your back. Worst working environment I have ever worked in. They have people staring at you doing work, making sure you do not exceed your toilet break timing, there are a lot of products that we need to remember, especially when they have different deals and promotions during that period of time. My first week of work was a promotion week and I almost wanted to quit. I had to smile through every call even though I feel like crying.

Worst job ever with toxic culture

- Toxic and unprofessional middle management, forever criticize, whining and gossip about colleagues and team members- Meetings always got no focus and no outcome-Instead of focusing on work, people like to poke their nose into team members personal matters and privacy- Poor leadership, often have different directions on dealing with projects, confusing the entire team- Manager often say one thing but do another thing, then blame the staff for doing it

Pros

No good reason for staying in the bank

Cons

Noisy and gossiping team leads and MD who like to talk non stop
