IBPS PO bank preference list 2020

In this post, we are going to have the IBPS PO bank preference discussion. Your preference list for IBPS PO banks depends upon your priorities and future plans.

If you want a temporary job so that you can prepare for other exams, you should go for banks which offer a good work-life balance and a less stressful work environment. You might be able to compromise with the job location since it would be a temporary short span job posting.

However, if you are looking for a permanent job with the bank, you should choose very wisely. As this will decide where and how you are going to work for the rest of your banking career.

Points to consider while choosing the bank:

  • CTA (Salary + Allowances)
  • Number of branches and their location
  • Internal promotions opportunities
  • Revenue of the bank
