    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.
