shosy,

i also went 4d diamond bnk medicals last month. i think its a close call beteen first and diamond banks.first is undergoing changes, they are big and strong,very soon they will b paying as good as any other bnk in naija, but d pay hike seems 2b a general trend as of now(oceanic, uba etc). so i believe the others lyk diamond will b forced 2 increase soon too. diamond we all know are focused,classy and springing up fast. Of d new generation bnks diamond ranks high up,and amongst d old ones first bnk is truely d first,so its quite close 2 call.4me i'll just nick diamond cos its all about d future.relax and make ur choice.ur blessed.

Guy i wuld luv 2 suggest dat u go remain in firstbank 4 reasons which i believe u r supposed 2 know.

If u have been following international financial news updates, u wuld have known dat first bank is currently undergoing some changes which was brought abt by d bid by HSBC London inorder 2 acquire firstbank fully. The bank has currently reviewed its salary scale, and wuld do so again in d not 2 distant future after d acquisition process has been completed. This wuld be 2 put its staff on equal footing with their colleagues in the UK. What dis portends its dat in no time, firstbank wuld be d biggest name in d Nigerian banking industry.

My man dis is just my own suggestion, the decision is urs 2 make.

Don't let them fool you.  First bank is the place to be o.  They have good job security, relaxed working environment, give you good training both internally and externally.  And above all you will have a well grounded banking experience as they are the bed rock of the financial institution in Nigeria and well recognised internationally to.

Good for the bank that is truely the first!

I do agree with you Demoore, but I wouldn't want you to overlook the fact that, they pay higher as a compensation for the stress one is subjected to. Their workers are usually subjected to more stress than those of First Bank.

Well, if I were in your shoes I would definitely choose Diamond bank. Its not about just the money, its also about the working environment and job satisfaction.you would have fewer people to attend to everyday at Diamond bank plus the probability of rising is higher. i would advise you to pray on it and seek advice from bankers with more experince on the issue. good luck.
