Enough said. If you have a choice stay away from GIB. Highly political. Groups by nationality create a toxic environment. The number of staff leaving is very high. The top management is very incompetent but thinks they are geniuses. Misplaced egos. Worst place to work for.

Long working hours including weekends without overtime paid. No job security as all are hired as consultants instead of permanent staff. Huge discrepancy in pay between two employees with the same job title and within same department based on nepotism. No career advancement opportunities.
Pros
Good working culture and camaraderie between employees
Cons
Nepotism, high rate of staff turnover and no career advancement programs

GIB is a nice place to work but there are many processes which creates hurdles and slows down the rate of work and make too much interdependent on different teams.

GIB is one of the best places to work with, they are following the most updated globally followed standard in information security and how to get the bank assets protected from rogue insider and from external cyber attack.

The work culture in GIB is moderate and it is just like any other place. The management is not stable and always changing. This creates a disturbance in the work flow and decisions are random and sometimes harmful. However, the people are very nice and the company always tries to promote family life style.
Pros
nice culture
Cons
poor management

I liked the way they treated employees. Transparency is something you can notice there. Collaborative work is encouraged. It's easy to communicate with any department's head since they have open offices for all employees.
