The Bank makes one the Jack of All trades and gives one a vast sales exposure & experiece opportunity.

Relationship Manager (Current Employee)
Āgra, Uttar Pradesh (India)

I have been working at HDFC Bank full-time for more than 5 years

Pros>Its a very good organization to work with & to learn practical aspects of sales & tough life.
>Remuneration may be good as far as the Supervisor is not self centered personality.
>Bank Policies give enough opportunities to the staff to stay with the bank for longer time.

Cons>Work & Personal Life balance is very poor. Higher ups try to show up that they are creating a professional environment but the middle ups spoil the same, probably because of the multiple & high target design.
>The bank has probably the weakest HR in the industry.
>The bank has a good reimbursement policy but the process of claiming the official expenses is very cumbersome. The middle management somehow cuts down the genuine official expenses of the subordinates for the reasons best know to them.

Advice to Senior Management>The middle management must be compelled to show professionalism in their attitude towards subordinates & punished if found guilty.
>The supervisors must be held responsible if a staff is unable to get the claim of the genuine official expenses.
>Work & Personal Life balance must be promoted.
>Targets should be decided more judiciously so that there should not be undue pressure among the staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
