    I worked at Syndicate Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Secured Job Good job for people without high expectations and carry on with their life. Perfect for employees above 40 years of age

    Cons

    1. Transfers to remote rural bank in other states which does not speak your language or English. This hampers your communicative abilities with customers and make you rely on others even for basic communication. 2. Banks lacks basic essential facilities like, electrical generator, cash counting machines, etc 3. There is no email ID for bank staff. Only one email ID per branch, that too can be received and sent from the only from branch server. 4. Long working hours because of poor systems and no proper infrastructure.

    I have been working at Syndicate Bank full-time

    Pros

    Couldn't find anything except job security since its a govt job.

    Cons

    Highly understaffed, too much work pressure and long working hours, too much stress, worst training programme, poor infrastructure and technological issues, bad management attitude, managers put pressure to show leniency in rules and regulations, even rules and regulations are not made clear & employees have to put their own efforts, all risks are transferred to employees, employees are grilled for losses in which they have no fault. I left my private job to join this bank and now I regret my decision. I felt better, more relaxed and stress free working there, even with little job insecurity.

    I worked at Syndicate Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Job security, good working conditions, wonderful staff, home atmosphere, pension benefits loan facilities , good compensation . It is possible to have a wonderful work life balance if you are a clerk, as a junior managerial staff younger generation who are more tech savvy can breeze through the job, opportunities are high in the next few years as many people are retiring...younger generation who would like to work and to enjoy leisure should grab the opportunity...

    Cons

    understaffed, overworked, stressed, and horrible transfer policies...anywhere in rural India, very long working hours, people retiring and vacancies not being filled up fast
