Productive and good opportunity to learn

I worked with the bank for nearly 6 years. I started out loving my job, the clients and the people I got to work with every day, enough resources (staffing/reliable technology) to do my job effectively. Management is more interested in goals, provides its front line workers the tools needed to do their job.

Retail banking environment in a bank

Bank has fairly large loan book with majority of customers being big institutions, businesses, oil companies, government entities etc in and around Abu Dhabi. Under UAE govt's push to promote SMEs in the region, The bank has recently diversified in retail banking, opening its network to UAE residents and SMEs, by offering business loans, mortgages etc. Thats why the culture is fairly high on power distance. However, given the competitive nature of business with over 52 banks fighting for same customer base of roughly about 3 million expats and locals in Dubai, the work environment at the bank is fairly competitive.

NBAD though a good brand but tough on employees

It was a good experience working with a strong brand like NBAD but the brand faded upon merger with FGB. I was inducted at the time of merger which didn’t favor me.. but always had something good coming my way.

My first job in which I was promoted within the first year!

Professionally managed the training functions, ensuring the provision of appropriate and economic training services for all Bank staff. As the nationalization manager and Nationals mentor, I ensured the effective employment and deployment of the UAE National workforce within the Bank’s organization (with an annual budget of over AED7m/pa). I also participated in the human recourses policies and procedure manual updating as a team member.


Good experiance


Uneven distribution of responsibilities
