"Social service with a salary" just about summarises my career in State Bank of India. It is an employee friendly bank. Salaries are decided at the industry level. You can plan entire career at SBI. Good retirement benefits too.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Cons
Work life balance

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

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.
