Bandhan is Micro-finance company recently got license for General Banking.
but still main focus on the micro-finance and the Bank is only Face to showcase in the Market to get investors and capital at lowest rate to grow micro-finance business.
General Banking division has no growth roadmap hence entire core banking technology is outsourced and struggling for uptime. very thin IT team and IT leadership has no clue how to run the Bank. complete dependancy on the Vendor caused messed in the Bank operation. Almost all of division in the Bank are lead by either by Bank owner's brother or closed relatives.
No prfessionalism seen as all meetings happens in local language it is asked me to learn local language to understand the conversation so no english literacy is proved. almost all CXO positions in the Bank is to meet the RBI compliance but no power /authority to run Bank. all decisions taken by Bank-owner and his Brothers keeping out CXO leaders in decision making in any small thing. VPs and other business leads have no corner/platform in Bank to place their thoughts.
No job security as entire business technology/business logics is out sourced to vender so no need of employee is the thought of owner of bank.
all the employees are thretened by Owner of the Bank and his brothers that not to say anything against their IT vendor hence IT vendor is most powerful than Bank employee.
my humble suggetion is to keep away from such companies



Dislikes

Camera servillance for monitoring every employee movement at work place, pantry always locked except lunch time,
owners brother stand in the gate to watch late commers. only people who does the oiling to owners are in the good book
even you are dept. head you will asked to do junior levels job infront of juniors and try to kill you honour.
if you not accept owner and his brother as god till you will get harrased
everything is possible here apart from honest work.
Owner and his brothers will always showcase their Power
This is not a place to work at ALL.

The only thing i like about Bandhan Bank is it has build a strong network of branches pan india which is very beneficial for both the customers and bank staffs.

Dislikes

Compensation structure is pathetic. There is no uniformity. Moreover appraisals in Bandhan Bank are not done based on your performance. Its based completely on how good is ur relation with your supervisor. Work life balance does not prevail in Bandhan Bank. Trainin quality is too low. Most of the times trainings are arranged locally and that too the local trainers dont have any knowledge. Innovative ideas are not appreciated here. Whatever the higher authorities decide that is being imposed on staffs. Cluster Heads do nothing rather than humiliating the Bandhan Micro finance staffs and internal staffs of Bandhan Bank. Hardly they go out for any business call. People are made to. Work for stretched hours. No security arrangements in most of the branches. Huge amount of cash is handled by staffs in transit. Company is least bothered for any CMS arrangement. Matriculation pass and Higher Secondary pass guys are also working in the bank that too in Assistant Branch Head, Branch Head positions. What is the quality of work or service they will provide???? Nothing more to say. This is one of the worst organisation i have ever worked with.

Work

I used to work as a Assistant Branch Head. Used to look after the entire operations of the bank. Had sales target too.

peace of mind,can easily balance job time and family/social time, life insurance/general insurance have not been entered in industry , saving accounts products are much attractive than anyother banks, no zanzat at all to maintain balances for saving accounts in all category, debit card is totally free for an annum after opening an account, personal loan can easily done from branch head end.

Dislikes

Higher level management from HR is too poor that is beyond poor than imaginations, can not keep an expectation for help or favor at all from higher management, It is ok ok upto cluster level but beyond on cluster level you can not expect anything .. products are not an attractive, rate of interest for loans products are very much higher that can not be sold , certainity for anything is zero , anything can possible to happen regarding role change and at all as i have seen during that couple of branch heads are downgraded to assistant branch head without any certain reason, marketing allowances providing from bank is too low that can not even possible to survive for marketing / advertise, process of customer service request is too much hectic, more than 70% employees sitted on scrutiny for the said are like uneducated who even do not have proper knowledge for CSR , as they raising reasonless discrepancies.. no one is there for justification, some of HR officers are too shrud ..

Working with Bandhan bank is so far is a very good experience. I am associated with this organisation almost from the beginning.Working with a new brand is never going to be easy but Bandhan Bank has grown up very speedily.Every one is very much satisfied be it bank employees or be it bank customers.Work atmosphere is very good.I have met a lot new people here who comes from different work backgrounds.Working with them has given me a very good experience,I have learnt that how to manage different kind of people who comes from a different work background.At the beginning it was quite challenging but now it's going very smoothly.New challenges had been thrown on me and I have learned that how to deal with it.

Dislikes

Every coins has two sides.Same applies here but when we compare good vs bad then good will win here.

Work

If u wanna learn something new then it's a very good platform.Overall personality will be changed in a good manner.

They will teach you things in a good and simple manner

Dislikes

Upper Managrment will treat you as you are their slaves, upper Management is fully filled by bengalis, no learning opportunities, you can stick to same post for many post if you're not good in boot licking, Opportunities only for them who are a good boot licker. My experience was terrible there because they hired me by not disclosing full facts and figures, they kept me in dark, low growth opportunities there, no work life balance, they make you to work many times 12 hours and on sunday also, never expect them any extra incentive for any extra work

Work

My work was related to kyc, they doesn't have same and simple procedures for kyc, Procedures change daily leading to confusion and frustration

I did not like working with the bank at all.The working process is not systematic. The job profile given to me was teller but I was forced to do sales and marketing for bank.I was forced to come on sunday also to create the sales pressure.
The resignation process is also very painful.HR is pathetic, they do not even confirm the resignation and exploit the employees by changing their job profile.This was the reason of my seperation from Bandhan Bank.

Dislikes

Everything..the seniors, their behavior was horrible, they force the employees who were placed for Operation work for sales and used to pressurise them to leave if are unable to fulfill their targets.

Dislikes

There is no proper HR administration. Your Boss can behave as he likes. You can't even contact HR whose role here is useless. Internal politics are more dirtier than anyone can imagine. Appraisal and promotions aren't for hard working people. Working hours are like hell, branch starts by 9 am but employee should be at office by 8.45 am and branch closes in between 8 and 8.30 pm. Management recently asked employees to work on sundays too. That's a shock for life. Job security is a joke. Better have a proper enquiry before getting into any organisation which we haven't done and regretting now.

Flexibility and the ability to use your ideas for business growth.. Any good thing that you do is unique and gets recognized.. Opportunity to show ur good deeds to the top management as it's a relatively flat hierarchy as of now

Dislikes

No promotion structure in place.. Lack of Training.. Corporate culture yet not visible..

Work

I have enjoyed my work fully.. Some people feel that they aren't able to perform citing reasons of a new bank..
However, I disagree&feel that being new is the opportunity that one has got to make new Relationships without any negativity about the brand..

It's not an MFI only, it's a bank now and starting take unimaginable leaps with a huge loyal customer base and lots & lots of capital; starting IPO soon. Competitors beware now.
Excellent culture within the bank, just no excesses, to the point is everything, nothing is short anywhere still. Just happy to be here with Bandhan.

Dislikes

Travel policy can be improved, seems miserly. Monthly incentives for loan department people not available. Yearly increments can be better.
