    Pros

    Favourable and non-toxic work environment. Manager and team members alike, everyone is always ready and willing to teach and help with your growth. You are empowered to manage your role/responsibilities and take decisions and even if you make a mistake, you are not frowned upon, instead it is used as a learning opportunity. Direct and senior management have been clear on objectives and this is very helpful in... shaping your mindset on how to integrate and how you can add value. You feel valued and are celebrated not just with big wins but the small wins also. This is the only bank on the block that still offers DBPP.

    Cons

    I don't have a con about NBC.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of shaping the company into an employee friendly/employee centric work environment by listening.
