    Pros

    Best exposure comprising hands on experience to latest happenings in banking technologies.

    Cons

    Salary hikes are below par compared to time spent in office to keep the bank running 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the pay structure from bottom level. Define a slab for increments. 3-4% increment in CTC translates to Rs. 350/month for AM level employees.

    Pros

    Full freedom to express your ideas and thoughts

    dirty politics and lot of polishing required to grow in organisation , if you are unable to please your boss , you might end up with 4 rating and might lose your job also

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please maintain transparency and let HR give some role to play in , now they are just subordinates of business heads nodding their heads for everything
