    Thanks for a detailed comparison. I want to understand what is your thoughts on
    1) Which exam is better when someone real aim is UPSC CSE? SSC vs SBI
    2) Does both Assistant, PO get govt. accomodation in place of posting?
    3) Is it feasible to be in SBI PO job and still study well for CSE?
    4) When you say no perks in Assistant job, and lots of perks in SBI, can you shed some more light on that?
    5) What is the hierarchical promotion structure in SBI PO job?
    6) Are SBI postings in the beginning in Rural or Urban cities?
    7) With 7th pay Comm. being enforced may be in 2013-14, what do you think in hand salary of Assistant vs SBI PO may be?
    8) Do you have any advise in terms of which books to be followed for SBI?
    9) Considering the rampant investment Fin. Ministry is seeking in banking sector in India, would it be safe to assume no. of vacancies in SBI PO see a significant increase in 2014. that is the attempt I would give.
    10) Does having a prior work experience have any weightage in either Assistant vs SBI PO job. I have nearly 3.5 yr work exp. by far.

    Thank you.
