One of the best companies in the world
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Siliguri, West BengalOctober 2, 2018
The learning curve has been great in SBI since the company provides you exposure from a secluded rural village to the limelight of the metro cities. Being the largest bank in India with a hoping number of 22000+ branch network and 58000+ ATM network is proudly the banker to almost every Indian. It is the only bank in India to be featured in fortune 500 list of companies globally. The State Bank of India started its operations from Bank of Bengal dating back to 1806, followed by Imperial Bank of India and finally State Bank of India under State Bank of India Act,1955. The journey till now has been topsy and turvy as the scenario changed from branch to branch due to demopgrahics and exposure in different roles at different times. The mix of People Management along with Finance, Operations and Marketing is not an easy assignment as it requires tremendous patience and perseverance along with the fire within to achieve extra milestone every year.
Pros
Company provided Lease Accommodation, Provides petrol/diesel as per designation quota every month, provides timely salary, Provides excellent training programs.
Cons
Training before any new assignment, Work life balance is not good.

Workplace full of Politics
ASSISTANT VICE PRESIDENT (Current Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraAugust 21, 2018
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
Relationship Manager (Current Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraAugust 10, 2018
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

Good Learning place
AVP (Former Employee) –  KolkataJuly 28, 2018
SBI is a organisation which gives you ample opportunity to interact with diverse set of people which may include a big corporate or a small farmer. You learn a lot in terms of managing your stake holders and managing a large portfolio of products .

leadership is always very supportive , yet you are expected to bring tangible results. Needless to say that due diligence and Risk management is an integral part of the day to day JOB.
Pros
Learning, Outreach, Impact
Cons
Growth

Surrounded by helpful people
Assistant Auditor (Former Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraJuly 20, 2018
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.

Struggling Bank
Manager (Current Employee) –  ChandigarhJuly 19, 2018
The Bank is having lack of vision and is presently disoriented. The HR is the biggest cuplrit in this as it has not been able to make and implement best practices. Banking Industry relies heavily on human capital which is not nurtured and encouraged to experiment. Too much bureaucracy.
