Management sucks

The whole automation team is rude and is run by dumb people. Every month 1-2 of my colleagues were leaving the team because of the bad work culture and the amount of stress. If you want to have several health issues then only join this organisation.

Pros

No pros

Cons

Long hours, rude management, stress, thankless people

Great company to work, bad work life balance and pay for outsourced employees.

FAB was a good place to learn. Teams work collaboratively towards common goals. Good management. Fast paced attitude and proactive nature will get you further in your job and you will be noticed. Work life balance is bad with people working easily 9 to 12 hours most days depending on your department. If you are outsourced expect to be paid much lower than direct employees but expected to deliver the same quality and quantity of work.

Pros

Great place to learn and network with colleagues in the banking industry

Cons

Bad work life balance and inequality of pay

Worst place to work, exploiters, cheat customers, horrible system and processes, worst management

Don’t know where to begin it’s a loan shark. All it cares about is money. People have got heart attacks, paralysis, divorces working but they don’t care. They cheat customers, take a lot of money and no one to listen to the customer. Systems are flawed. Customer don’t know they are overpaying, never get their rewards and benefits cash backs. Don’t deal with this bank in anyway.

Pros

Nothing - Don’t deal with this bank

Cons

Everything is a con. Apple polishing people will enjoy pleasing their bosses.

Worst experience with First Abu Dhabi bank

I will never recommend anyone to apply for job at First Abu Dhabi bank. They are very unpredictable . If some candidate is even joining for better opportunity, he or she will definitely regret later cause they just sack people as and when they like. Management is very partial. They don't even give any consideration or time . I will never ever work again or accept any job opportunities even if i get if I am lucky enough from or with First Abu Dhabi Bank.Very bad experience with First Abu Dhabi bank.

Bad culture

A lot of work to be done to do the changes that take them to next level They need to look at their employees and treat them well and the focus on business is not by putting pressure on sales only banking is not sales only

Terrible Company Terrible Place of Work!

The bank laid-off hundred of employees and I was one among them, they forced the employees to sign a resignation documents instead of being terminated!! For employees who refused to sign the resignation they literally threatened us of having less End Of Service Benefits and we will "regret" the decision later and we will never find a job again!! It's unbelievable how horrible the HR in this bank is. Salaries are below market standards. 5k AED for a customer facing role, you can get 7k AED by working for small companies in Musaffah (industrial area)
