The Public bank is a good bank to invest in their share, not invest your time in it. The organization is too big, so it's hard to manage the corporate culture.
If you work in a branch, sometimes the branch manager also can't even remember your name.

The salary/benefits make up for the poor work-life balance. Promotions are highly performance based which is good. Performance bonuses are attractive as well.

Top quality work is expected and if perform well, will be recognised with good pay/bonuses. Staff benefits are very good especially medical benefits. May lack work-life balance during peak periods.

working culture here is encouraging employee to work hard and work overtime instead of work life balance. There are many things you could learn here like how to deal with senior and manager, complicated working relationship.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Work Overtime without pay

During my tenure at Public Bank, I am part of Hire Purchase Credit Processing HP Centre. With team of 10 Officers, each of us need to process an average of 10 cases per day and was given 3 days to submit a decision whether the customer submission approved or rejected. It's very stressful as the pace of new case submission was very fast and It need me to go back home late everyday.

Different department has different challenges. Like Housing Loan Department are less stressful as officer part only on customer credit evaluation. The rest will be done by panel lawyer as it involves government agencies. For Frontline Counter they are facing Queue Management System (QMS) which HQ will track how many customers are waiting for their number to be call in more than 2 minutes.


But the best part in Public Bank, of course the bonus and ex-gratia. The management are good in taking care staff welfare. Medical benefit are given to staff and their families, 2 months bonus are given to all staff every year and in addition special ex-gratia based on staff performance up to 5 months and low interest rate 0% - 2% for staff housing loan.


Overall, although work environment are stressful but working in Public Bank build my personality in terms of work wise fast and accurate, customer handling and evaluation, useful experience, etc
Pros
Medical Benefits, Staff Housing Loan, Bonus/Ex-gratia
Cons
Work Loading
