    Pros

    Great learning opportunities..! working at HDFC teaches you a lot be it the financial services area.. business perspective or growth as a mature & responsible person.

    Pay is good but only you reach at a level in the management.

    Cons

    The behaviour of management is bad.. the overall employee morals are down and HR is a puppet to management with no useful powers. If you are in branch banking you would rather prefer to work at war front.
    Also there is a 3months notice period with no pay!
    Biased pay structure
    Untimely reimbursement structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The vision to grow is understandable but it has to be inculcated within the employees and not something which is forced upon in terms of targets and no.s

    Pros

    Brand. If u can sustain hdfc pressure, everyone else will blindly take u

    Cons

    Family life gets completely destroyed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pls understand that no company can grow at 30% you for ever. And if employees keep changing frequently, especially frontline employees, customers lose faith and it will soon affect your brand and u will realise it but it may be too late by then.

    Pros

    No pros with this group. No benefits to the customers.

    Cons

    HDFC is ridiculous. I am trapped with these blood suckers. Got loan on very attractive rate at 10.25%, but slowly and gradually they increased the rate of interest to 12% without intimation. After 3 year when I visited their branch and enquired about it. They said I have to pay Rs25,000 to reset my base rate. Which I paid and my based rate and my ROI came back to 10.50%. After 6 months they again started the same trick, gradually and slowly increased the rate of interest by incrementing it by 0.25% every quarter. Again currently I am paying ROI of 11.75%, whereas I am still able to see on various websites they are claiming to give loan on 10.15% to new customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your operational efficiency and reduce some greed.

    Pros

    Being a mammoth and process-oriented bank with huge client base, I'm sure there are lot of things to learn. Just that the old hands in the bank wouldn't let you survive to learn.

    Cons

    I quit that bank after working for 3 months as a Senior Manager. Sales dept. constantly works under boiler room pressure wherein see themselves and subordinates as liability for the branch. You'll be lost for good initial days and no one will help/guide you. Then suddenly the pressure for performance will elevate out of no where. You can't disagree with your seniors, healthy debate is a big no-no for their ego. Ops dept. works like they are a part of some sarkari daftar. No accountability. Customers constantly nag about HDFC's pathetic service and even non-integrity of mis-selling employees. HR is least bothered about employee welfare. They are too busy to even ask for the resigned employee for the exit interview. And then they crib about 25% attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the top rotten management layer of the branch banking and then move down gradually. I have seen employees reluctant to smile at work because their boss doesn't like 'Indiscipline'!! If you think bottomline figure is what really matters in corporate arena, wait for best of your intellectual property to flee to other better work places.

    Pros

    You will stretch your working capacity due to extreem pressure of target....endless work..You will come to know about yourself that you can work for 12 hours.

    Cons

    No existance of HR..employee is exploited by his supervisor but there is no check by the HR. No recognition of work after serving precious years of life for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please focus on employee welfare inspite of business targets..employee is the key for the organisation's sucess.
