The commercial banking system dominates Bangladesh's financial sector. Bangladesh Bank is the Central Bank of Bangladesh and the chief regulatory authority in the sector. There are a total of 51 banks in Bangladesh, and this banking system is composed of four state-owned commercial banks, five specialized development banks, thirty eight private commercial Banks and nine foreign commercial banks. Hence we can easily say that the private commercial banks (PCBs) comprise for the largest portion of the banking sector.
The banking sector has attracted a lot of fresh graduates for a very long time because of their work environment and other facilities that they provide. Moreover, the work environment and culture of the private commercial banks are such that the employees are motivated to work and prove themselves to their employers. One such approach made by PCBs was to offer a higher post to the young, newly hired graduates as they believed that this would help to increase employee satisfaction. This strategy has by many means been successful as well as a little unsuccessful for the banks. The overall study shows that simply hiring employees in higher posts cannot increase their overall job satisfaction; rather, a lot of other factors also need to be considered in order to ensure the satisfaction of the employees.


The main objective of this paper is to show how much effective the attempt was made by the owners of the PCBs to increase employee satisfaction by recruiting the fresh graduates in higher posts. For this reason, we have worked with six such commercial banks and interviewed their employees to find out the present scenario.
With the vast array of PCBs that are operating in Bangladesh, it is by every means the most sought job sector by the youth in Bangladesh, but in order to attract them towards the banking sector, the…...

But when we use the term bank it generally means ‘commercial bank’ that collects the Deposit from surplus unit of the society and then lends the deposits to the deficit units of the society. From very first emergence and inception of modern civilization, Bank plays a pivotal role in case of overall financial and socioeconomic development of any modern country. The basic functions of bank are deposit extraction and credit extension. Credit is the nub of banking business. It helps this kind of organizations to earn around 80% of the total revenue. Managing credit operation, thus, is the crying need for any bank. In case of failure in credit management, a bank may face extinction. It is, therefore, necessary that a bank has a proper credit profile that guides the credit operation of the bank in an effective manner. For proper management of credit each and every bank follows the profile for smooth approval, direction, monitoring and review of lending operation. Bank’s may fall into engulfing crisis or may wind up with consumption of capital if they do not practice proper Appraisal and approval process and loan classification and provisioning system on their advance. Appraisal and approval process of a bank loan application involve a series of activities. These activities reveal a true element of banking......

The persistent default problems, the rapid increase in the level of outstanding loans, inefficient management, corruption among the bank officials and employees and the deterioration of customer services in the NCBs led the GOB to allow operations of private commercial banks in 1983. There has been mushroom growth of PCBs in Bangladesh during 1990s and there are now 30 PCBs, some of which are owned by the loan defaulters of the IDFIs and NCBs. The PCBs provide, apart from deposit taking activities and short term loans to borrowers. They also provide long term industrial loans to the borrowers but their long term lending activities are in no way as large as those of the NCBs. Regardless of their ownership in private hands and operational independence, PCBs suffer from a number of problems including high loan default which contributed to their failure to meet capital adequacy requirements. The amount of PCBs bad loan was Taka 41.47 billion in September 2003, and six PCBs have written off 90% of the total bad loans accrued until that time. It was reported that Pubali Bank written off Taka 1.63 billion , Uttara Bank Taka 3.24 billon, AB Bank Taka 1.32 billion, City Bank Taka 2.03 billion, Islami Bank Taka 1.35 billion and IFIC Bank Taka 2.98 billion.
