    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    For someone who wants to learn the nuances of sales this is a good place to work as one engages in daily B2C interactions. Work timings are flexible. Due recognition is given to the performers. Pay is also above average industry standard.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the politics and promote people based on merit!

    Pros

    Good Exposure providing industry exposure. The work -life balance depends upon the kind of job profile being handled by the employee.

    Cons

    The HR policies are very conservative from the stand point of the company. The role of HR is very dominant; hence the employee has little say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. The senior management and leadership are good. Suitable actions are taken at right intervals to ensure that company's objectives are met.

    I worked at ICICI Bank full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very few pros-
    I used to work in wholesale/corporate banking.
    1) Largest private sector Bank in India with a finger in many pies-you get to know a little about the many pies.
    2) Since the organisation is poorly run, attrition is high, the atmosphere is chaotic-it is possible for someone who is young and relatively inexperienced to handle responsibilities and gain work experience that will be valued elsewhere. Operative word is" elsewhere". Good luck getting it here

    Cons

    Where do I begin?
    Actually,every possible con you can have in an employer. It's a classic "kiss up and kick down" organisation with consequential business under performance that is camouflaged under a litany of insignificant facts, half truths, convenient representation and CEO/Chairman worship.

    1) Nothing in this organisation works. You have been recruited by HR as superman/batman/pokey man. Get used to preachy(and delusional) articles written by the high ups in HR and posted on the intranet. Btw the compensation sucks and they try to reduce it further....a minute late after 9:15 am and you lose half a day's salary. Technically, the system is designed so your boss can approve the "late-coming"..but everyone is so petrified here of "big brother HR" that it won't happen. Most people work on average considerably longer than the 5:45 pm closing time....I would estimate that in some departments a 12 hour day is average. But no-no extra salary for staying after 5:45 pm!

    2) Training-what training? Nothing that will add any value to you professionally. You are sent on HR mandated training every now and then where you get to learn how to "organise yourself better" or how to "be more effective"....you get the picture. No training which you suggest will ever be approved unless it is free. Don't think, even for a moment that I am exaggerating.

    3) Time off policies...haven't you got the picture by now? Officially, the leave allowance per annum is pretty generous. But good luck getting any of it. Also-no leave in the first year you join. ..that's right. 0 days. Since the organisation is so chaotic and disorganized( in house IT systems to save costs...cheap but don't do the job) be prepared to be bothered by phonecalls at all times. People are disturbed on weddings/funerals...it's all part of the culture of no respect for anyone unless they are high up in the hierarchy. If you are sufficiently high up enough-someone will warm your toilet seats and catch the droplets when you sneeze( lest your exalted snot be tarnished by contact with the dusty floor)

    4) Leadership: Usually lacking, although there are exceptions. In general, be prepared to be thrown under the bus if anything doesn't work out even if you were not involved in the outcome but are merely associated in some way with it. Feckless, manipulative and devious would be the best description of leadership here.

    5) Promotions and compensation: Are you an old timer...do you have "vintage"? Better still are you female? If you aren't female-prepare to see reverse discrimination when it comes to performance rating. If you haven't been around for long-you need to really think about whether it is worth sticking around for better bonuses/ratings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take responsibility for poor decisions. HR, IT, Training, ridiculous work culture and basic respect for employees and customers is YOUR responsibility!
    We need credible leaders-not celebrity CEOs who spend their time dancing with film stars, playing up the fact that they are female and giving interviews to magazines/television shows on non business fluff.
