    Pros

    competitive, great learning opportunities, well known brand name and one of the top private banks in India.

    Cons

    low work/life balance, low scope to develop innovative ideas or thinking, less flexibility in choosing desired functional areas of work and unrealistic target expectations without providing proper tools and pathway for achieving those targets.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about the concepts and theories of HRM across the organisation, try implementing it as well.

  2. Lot of pressure to preform and sometimes the hard work is not appreciated.

    Pros

    A good place to learn and develop yourself as a new graduate.

    Cons

    Politics determine raises and bonuses. If upper management likes you and you play the game, you can get very far. Sometimes the less deserving get raises and higher bonuses. Compensation and benefits need to be better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the politics and promote people based on merit!

  3. The worst financial institution in North America
