I am having a pleasent experience of working in our esteem bank. I have been appreciated by my higher authority many a times. But unfortunately the incident/accident which I have come accross at the last part of my carrier as well as in my life ruined everything. I have joinrd in the bank on 18th march 1986 as a clerk ad got promoted to JM G S I in the year 2000. I was instrumental for deposit mobolisation /NPA recovery etc. I was transfered to Raipur in CG in the year 2015 and was posted me in Raipur (M) branch after rendering 12 years of continious service in Guwahati City in Assam. I was not transffered from the city only for business development.

Dislikes

After compliting my graduation in the year 1984 i have got the oppurtunity to appear for written test/intervuew for the first time and got the service . Bank of Baroda was my motger hence no question of disliking arise. I have been removed from the service by Bank management I have not left the job.

Career growth is very good currently. Promotions are quick. Good job security.

Dislikes

There is acute staff shortage in bank. You are quickly given responsibility of higher scales.which may lead to non performance. You may not get time to spend with family. Salary and perks are as good as nothing with respect to responsibility you discharge.very poor hrm, there is no guideline about skills require for specific role, anyone can be posted anywhere in any dept regardless their interest and skills.thus if you are good in the eyes of authority or you have some one inside the management you get posted wherever you want and others are posted at toughest post. And you both get same salary if in same scale regardless toughness of job.

Work

Cohesive and wholeheartedly look for the work. Though there are formal training, the actual training is imparted real-time. Job Security is there till we are loyal and faithful to the organization. During my time there was no much carrier growth. But now there are many avenues, if we are hard working and can appease higher authorities. There's authority as well as responsibility. You can work independently and take decisions.work environment is under high pressure since the expectations of higher-ups are very high. Social life as all know is not that good now for bankers. But it seems that vast changes are expected.Innovation in technology may bring in change in social life of staff as well. Working environment is under high pressure since the expectations of customers are also high as like their numbers as PSB caters all the public with out any classification.

Dislikes

Biased approach among higher authorities are there. Work done by everyone is not appropriated. For promotion this attitude is evident. Nothing else.


Work

Hectic and challenging.

Always full support of teammates. Excellent job training. Full job security. Career growth is fine. Management is always their power by harassing in yearly appraisal therefore it is suggested that promotion should be quality wise.

Dislikes

Most of higher management use their power to harass those people who are under them therefore growth should be qualitative. I have worked hard so many times in the growth of bank but could not get good yearly appraisal by the management during my tenure to work as branch head. I always got average marks in yearly appraisal. It always effects me in getting promotion.

Work

I have always worked hard in growth of bank but could not get better opportunity in getting promotion due to senior management.

Bank of Baroda is a great bank with rich heritage , committed staff and large overseas presence.Public perception of this bank is good.Up to certain level promotions are almost guaranteed.

Dislikes

Work pressure is terrific and for this no compensation is available. New technologies are introduced without any proper ground work making customer service a mess of lowest degree.St higher level financial corruption is prevalent causing rapid growth of NPA at all levels.Higher promotions I.e. promotion above Chief Manager rank is based upon recommendations and honest, loyal,deserving are deprived of higher promotions.Most of the Regional Head and Zonal Heads are indulged in financial malpractices.

Work

Lacking job satisfaction from all angles.

Bank of Baroda is a great institution to work with. It provides significant opportunities to it's sincere employees to excel and to achieve their cherished goals. It nurtures need based values and polishes knowledge through miscellaneous training schedules. It also has suitable policies for female employees. It also provides opportunity to learn and assimilate with different cultures due to its vast net work of branches in India and abroad.

Dislikes

All is fine and congenial work culture.

Work

It's exciting due it's customer centric approach. It cares for its vast clientele base through care and competence. It also equips its work-force for customers' delight through guidance and trainings.

Indubitably BOB is a premier PSB. Monetary compensation in a PSB is not very motivating as compared to other NAVRATNA companies and central government employees specially if we look at the quantum of work performed. Transferability worsens it more. Quality of life in BOB is very poor specially in the branches situated in rural areas. Target is set in mechanical manner and is same for assessment. It doesn't account for location of branch (business potential) and difficulty level. If you are in good book, you will get an easy branch and will achieve all the business targets else you may be sent to a far flung branch devoid of any major economic activity and replete with rowdy elements. BOB is a BIG bank but one of the worst employers.

Dislikes

Working hours not definite and not proportionate remuneration.

Job security is the only positive thing.

Dislikes

Transfer policy... you won't have any decision as to where you want to live. Pathetics policies which try to micro manage your life. You will need prior permission to go out of the city of your posting. You will be blackmailed by threatening to send you to a remote and far away from your family. Forget about working wife, otherwise two of you will live in different cities. Kids will suffer as well. Culture is highly sycophantic. Shoe lickers can easily get promotion. That is the only qualification you need to go higher in this organisation.

Work

Work.... They don't believe in the specialization of work. Assignments are allocated almost randomly. Though things are improving but they are still far behind the best practices.

Being a nationalised bank.. It provided job security. You get to work in variety of work profiles during ur career. Growth opportunities are getting stagnant at executive level now a days.

Dislikes

Politics at work is worse I have seen in my life. Specially when u work in treasury branch or corporate offices of BOB. Horrible bosses I encountered at Treasury branch, they have no regards to capabilities and qualifications and knowledge of juniors. Decisions are taken entirely by whims and fancies.. And it helps when u have contacts at higher levels for getting good postings.
