Imagine currently DTB is a tier one bank yet the staff don’t get bonuses as the Finance GM Alkarim said he doesn’t see the need despite the work that the workers put in.
In case you lose a family member the Bank doesn’t even offer any money to help their staff or even give them a vehicle to help transport staff to help one mourn.
When we lost a young lady called Brenda who was forcefully transferred to Meru branch since she refused to sleep with some senior manager and died in a road accident travelling to Meru, the bank didn’t contribute even a shilling it’s her colleagues who decided to pool and contribute to give to her parents.
It was quite sad when at the funeral the parents were begging the bank to at least take one of their other children to work in DTB.
In 2017, we lost a colleague who was the manager of Kilifi and it’s the branch managers who came together to contribute something to give to the wife yet this guy had worked with the bank for more than 15 years.
Until this year imagine the bank didn’t have compassionate leave when you lose a loved one. The CEO who doesn’t have a kid openly criticizes the ladies who get pregnant and would comment that it’s better hiring men or robots who don’t get pregnant.
Walk into any branch and ask the manager if he understands the new IFRS accounting system they will answer on the negative. This will show you that promotion is not on merit but rather who you can lick their ass.
Most of the managers don’t even know the ownership composition of the bank. They always advertise GMT positions yet if you apply you can’t get since most of those positions are awarded to directors kids or the senior managers’ children.
Sometimes we end up with GMTs that can’t do basic accounting or financial analysis but you have to train them.
The CEO ended up sacking the former head of branches like a dog.
Mr Joe Maye tried to transform the bank and even managed to change the image of the bank from the exclusive Indian bank it has been.
Even though he had his own sexual scandals but he tried to fight for the African workers.
The bank rarely gives loans to Africans even if you have banked with them for years.
