    I have been working at ICICI Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Learning and updating knowledge.. After working here can work in any kind of pressurizing jobs. A place where you can start your career to update banking knowledge. Especially in branch banking.

    Cons

    Huge sales pressure, less salary, very less hikes. HR policy is very bad and they support management rather than employees. Ratings are completely depends on your boss. No fixed timings. Even then strict hr policies many branches closes daily by 9

    I worked at ICICI Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Only the network of branches and ATM they have

    Cons

    Generally ICICI bank is the first company to visit campuses and so ppl all over tier--2 b school sit for it. But this company process are not in place they will sledge you to death. no work life balance, no professionalism. Bosses can follow u can call at subordinates home, they can do anything.
    they actually harass their employees. No ER manage will listen nothing. this company is a waste
    to all campus jionees or aspirants pls dont get attracted by they pay because there also there is mis communication. they love to miss sell starting from advisory services to products to even recruitment
    ICICI= insurance Chahiye Insurance Chahiye Insurance

    I have been working at ICICI Bank

    Pros

    Employees are hard working but management had unreasonable expectations from them.

    Cons

    South/ karnataka seniors have created a team to spoil career of other employee. HR also supports them. They're Not open to any feedback. So this is indirect feedback to senior management /MD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pls take care of your employees. They are demotivated due to forced pms raking of 15% employees as 4.
