Productive work place
Fast paced , target driven work environment with zero tolerance for errors . Aggressive management style with customer focused workplace culture. The hardest part f the job is meeting up with ever upwardly changing performance targets while the most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with and providing solutions to customers.

Nice place to work
Experienced management is lacking in few areas. Overall, there has been continuous improvement in the culture of the Bank. I enjoyed working in the Risk Directorate, specifically in the Credit Analysis & Processing Department, because i felt valued. the work was challenging but enjoyable at the same time. The hardest part of the job was closing late and getting into traffic, arriving home late veryday.

Working with first bank has opened my eyes to the reality of the modern slavery in the bank. we worked hard and got peanut as salary. when they decide to retrench us, they pay us one month salary as exit package.

Low morale
. Acceptable performance bar is 90% achievement of set targets. Anything short of this recurved alot of tongue lashing that has a way of dampening staff morale and self esteem.

A good place to gain vital experiences
It's an exciting place to work, they have a large customer base and the experience there is vital. They welfare is very good but the work-life balance for some of the department is almost none-existent

very productive place to work and learn
First Bank of Nigeria is cool yet challenging place to work. during the course of my stay there, i developed in multi tasking and learnt how to absorb pressure that came from both customers and colleagues.

The hardest part of the job was convincing customers to register for a product. But because of my good orientation on customer service, i was able to scale through.
