    I worked at HDFC Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast Paced company. Opportunities for growth. Increases the skills required to get the job done. Experience gained is valuable for future endeavors.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Purely a sales oriented approach and the customers and employees are both grilled to increase the sales. Sales target oriented. No holidays. You will have to work on off days frequently. Also, on working days too you end up being in office for 10-14 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Should offer better work life balance for the employees. The management is stuffed with too many old fashioned managers. This might lead to lot of dissatisfaction in employees, poor work quality and dent to the bank image.

    Pros

    Company has good training. A good bank for customers

    Cons

    If you are a RM. Its worse. High targets and too many complex structures. High incentive slabs but very dificult to get into even basic incentive. Attrition rate is 50 i guess. If you are shrewd, like talking to people and listening to your boss only then join... Dont run behind salary. Look a better Job

    Advice to Management

    Reduce employee pressure
