Bank Audi Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Bank Audi is a Lebanon-based universal bank and financial services company headquartered in Beirut. It is the largest bank in Lebanon by total assets and offers financial products and services in personal banking, business banking, private banking and Treasury and Capital Markets segments.

"Not a good place to work" says a Bank Audi former employee on Glassdoor on December 20, 2015:

"Pros

You should only work at Bank Audi if you're homeless. If you have any place to sleep and any source of food and water supplies you should never think about it

Cons

People are mentally sick and in bad need of serious psychological treatment. You'll to listen daily to illogical requests and irrational way of work and abide. I can't say that there's professionality or communication issues as there's absolutely nothing of those stuff and people knows nothing about the terms. Head quarter in Lebanon is leading projects they know nothing about and are launching new projects with absolutely zero planning. Really can't evaluate management as that would be like evaluating the IQ of a just born child. Leaving the bank is the worst thing you can face ever in your life as you have to get in touch with HR who are embracing a very new and bizarre attitude. HR department knows nothing about how to communicate with colleagues . Too offensive for sure as everbody else. Don't want to get into details of money deducted due to incomplete notice period and exit interview which are hilarious. Sorry, forgot to tell that you're blamed all the time for not doing the unscheduled, nonsense tasks that wasn't even requested from you and that you've got to work every weekend without any logical reason and get for sure no money for overtime. Roles are not defined and responsibilities are not known. The whole scene is just like a wrecked Syrian boat heading to Greece."

HR-Recruitment and Selection- Internship (Former Employee) says

Intern (Former Employee) says

"I was in the Correspondent banking & Group FI department where I prepared BIR's. Overall the experience was ok, it was not great, but it was better than most other internships one could get in Lebanon."

Sales Person, Internship (Former Employee) says

"My previous experience at Bank Audi gave me an insight about sales and convincing skills and taught me how to be flexible and confident about my sales skills."

Intern in Commercial Banking and Operations (Former Employee) says

"...The third step of my career plan is actually the transformation of the youth, energy and exuberance that I stated above into saturated maturity, stability and wisdom. What I hope I could do in that step is to contribute all what I have acquired during my career to the improvement of my home country and to its financial and economical conditions. This aspiration not only stems from my belief that the financial sector is the most fertile force for improvement, but also because I have actually been inspired by several university professors and a big number of financial figures and I know how efficient and positive the impact of a good role model could be on the person inspired.--"

Brand Communication officer (Current Employee) says

"Bank Audi is my second home! Everyday, after i wake up, i prepare my breakfast and head immediately to Bank Audi which is located 5 mins away from home. My day starts with reviewing all the emails sent by our agency at the end of the previous day (since of course agencies spend most of their times at the office, but in our case we leave earlier) while responding with the related material to every relevant stakeholder. At bank Audi, i am the agency since we do not only deal with one stakeholder but with many each responsible for its own products and services. For example, we have our retail cards team, retail loan and accounts team, ADC team responsible mainly for the technological advancements such as the mobile app and many other clients. What is interesting here is that we deal with different people, different characters and we have different projects each time. So we are the agency at the clients side. So after i finish reviewing what was sent, i start working on the different strategies we need to work on for the upcoming campaigns we already got the briefs on. Meetings before the lunch and after the lunch happen on a daily basis in order to follow up on the campaign, along with calls with the agency to finish every deliverable needed by each stakeholder. My afternoon coffee is complemented by small talks with my colleagues at the office who add a sweet perspective on the culture at the office. And once done, i head to our gym where we exercise with different groups. I learn each day a lot from bank audi whether on a professional or personal level. And what is the most"

Group Head of Solution Delivery (Current Employee) says

"Having lived 22+ years in the US and all my years of experience have been in the US, I learned a lot about the work place, people at work, and how to conduct business the Lebanese way. Employees are remarkably hard workers and fully dedicated to the Bank and its aggressive growth strategy. Management comes in many different flavors. Most noticably is the large number of Lebanese with US and western experience whom been recruited and hand picked to provide the Bank with a different perspectives on all fronts.Excellent Corporate Social Responsibility initiativesLittle time for fun"

Head teller (Current Employee) says

"A typical day at work would be a day where stress is in its normal level and where time passes by without noticing it. In my previous job I have learned discipline, communication with clients, solving conflicts. I also learned how to respect the hierarchy of the work place and follow rules and make my own decisions. The hardest part is the pressure in achieving daily tasks especially when working with more than two clients at the same time. But, I most enjoy making new work relations with existing and new clients in other word be their personal banker."

Internship (Former Employee) says

"; I learned about the counter operations and I also worked in the Customer Service Department so I learned everything there is to know about banks and how they operate daily. Treasury, Head Office Plaza, Bank Audi; I also continued my Bank Audi internship in the head office where I spent it in the Treasury department and learned a lot about the Lebanese stock market, foreign exchange market, and all international financial markets where the trading occurs.i got to rotate and see several departments in the bankcould not have real tasks since i was only an intern"

Section Head Administration & Procurement Manager (Former Employee) says

"Day to day lists of problems and remedial actions accordingly.Planning and organizing all needed enhancements and renovations.I have learned to work under stress and manage resources to progressively tackle problems and solve them.Marvelleous team work atmosphere.The hardest part in the job is trying to set guidelines and system work while having huge number of complains and problems. In this regards, I would assume that it was also the enjoyable part of the job."
