    I worked at ICICI Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Trainings, motivation and the support from seniors. There is no gender bias.

    Cons

    Long sitting hours were a concern. It would have been great if there were more facilities for the employees at the branches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance should be maintained. The employee should be happy. The energy and enthusiasm at ICICI is infectious. If the work life balance is maintained the turnover would reduce and the skilled employees can be retained.

    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
