Chief Manager (Current Employee) – Goa – November 19, 2017
SBI is now a behemoth which is line with top global Banks. This indeed is matter of pride, however what SBI lacks is proper structure esp. HR. There is no HR here, some stupid person with no background in HR or Employee engagement will sitting and troubling people. So, if the best practices of HR are put in place then this place is best to be Secondly, many people here have worked their life here and hence do not have proper exposure as in private banks and hence they think only in the SBI terms which is quite detrimental. Working in various organizations makes a person more mature and confident. Though some of the officials (Mid & Senior level) are really smart and top class, the majority lack the finish. Thirdly, a BIG FAT EGO, yes it is still run like British slavery, where the top management doesn't heed to the plight of its staff nor the ground reality and never listens, every boss here thinks he is big person. If there could a colleague rapport building training wherein each colleague respects the other colleague and cordially get the work done, then this place would be heaven. Fourthly, TRANSEFRS, yes I have seen most deserving people not taking promotions because they may have to shift eventually destabilizing their family life. Many husband wives working bank are staying in two different places, some have quit because of this too. FAMILY MATTERS and yes lastly LONG WORKING HOURS this is very annoying as the young generation as well some mid level people value work life balance and the Bank should heed to this if it wants its talent to stay. Now, the postive ones aremore... JOB SECURITY, WIDE EXPOSURE from Branch banking, operations, IT, Policy making etc. Colleagues are treated more like a family member here. And yes GOOD PERKS.less
Good perks, Wide exposure, Respect, Great colleagues
Working hours, Zero robust hr policies, Ego maniac bosses
Relationship Manager Small Enterprise (Current Employee) – Maharashtra – October 31, 2017
A lot of security and pretty fair remuneration if you are tough enough. The organisation is excellent, though your boss will define your experience. The HR policies will have you scratching your head at the best of times.
A great place to start your career.
Unlimited exposure to financial system in India and abroad
It was an productive experience as weell as nice atmosphere wprking with sbi

Assistant, Business Process Re-engineering (Former Employee) – Mumbai, Maharashtra – October 9, 2017
SBI is a global bank and the biggest lender of India. The management of the organization is highly intelligible and appreciated. They provide the motivation to their juniors for continuously improving their work.
I have joined this bank as my second career. The poor management at branches and with out proper training and work knowledge staff is forced to work and take risk and has to face people's angers and displeaser. The above facts force me to seek change my present job
Long hours and very poor management at rural branches
Working with State Bank of India is enriching since SBI is among the world's top 50 Banks.
Manager (Current Employee) – Chandigarh – October 1, 2017
Working with SBI is a diversified experience. A typical day at work beings at 09:30 hrs. dealing with variety of customers, providing banking facilities as per employee's assigned role and completing all ancillary tasks till 18:30 hrs. in the evening. A State Bank officer is a jack of all trades in Banking arena viz. , Branch Management, Retail Banking, Retail Advances, Credit Analysis of Corporate Advances, IT, Customer Services, Vigilance and Disciplinary actions, Human Resources etc.
The work culture at SBI is one of the best in India. The hardest part of the Job of an SBI officer is poor work life balance and the most enjoyable part is that being an SBI officer enables you to be more dynamic, tolerant and seasoned personality.
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) – Delhi – September 28, 2017
Worst place to work.. no work life balance.. management is so insensitive that they keep on pressuring staff for unnecessary things.. all the data given by sbi regarding their organisatin is total fraud.. if there is a chance of CAG audit this bank will bite dust.. lot of bad loans are just because of managements pressure.. there is even pressure for cross selling jst becz management gets huge commission on this.. insurance policies are done without even taking the customers consent.. poor people are being looted by this bank
While the job as an officer is enjoyable initially(i.e while you are in probation), it becomes difficult after confirmation, and its not because the job is difficult. Sure, there are challenges but what makes it unlikable is the support from management. Its a one way traffic from top. 1. Posting's are done arbitrarily( the farther you are from home the better it is seems to be the motto). No due consideration given even on family grounds. 2.Working on holidays and late sitting has become a norm. 3. IT system of the bank is average at best, with frequent glitches and down time of software's. 4. While you are supposed to finish customers work instantly, there is no time frame for finishing staff's work. A small work such as getting a bill passed can take ages. Other things such as salary and perks are decent, though not great. You can make good contacts if you are smart. And respect of working with SBI is still there in society and market.

Joined sbi in the year 1980 as clerk - typist and presently working as chief manager in local head office, patna. Sbi management is excellent and always with honest employees. Work place culture in sbi is excellent. The hardest part of the job was transfer from one place to another, particularly at the time when children were at the peak of their study.. Worked in bihar, jharkhand, andhra pradesh, karnataka and enjoyed everywhere.
