    I have been working at HDFC Bank full-time

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities..! working at HDFC teaches you a lot be it the financial services area.. business perspective or growth as a mature & responsible person.

    Pay is good but only you reach at a level in the management.

    Cons

    The behaviour of management is bad.. the overall employee morals are down and HR is a puppet to management with no useful powers. If you are in branch banking you would rather prefer to work at war front.
    Also there is a 3months notice period with no pay!
    Biased pay structure
    Untimely reimbursement structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The vision to grow is understandable but it has to be inculcated within the employees and not something which is forced upon in terms of targets and no.s

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
