    I have been working at Kotak Life full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I don't think there is any pros just writing to fill the space. Pathetic salaries, Horrible senior management, worst possible HR policies.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance, management will ensure you don't have life after work. Salaries are horrible with just 5% increase in salaries in 2013-14. Minimum 12 hours working if you are at Head Office. Senior management is full of accountants who don't know basics of management. If you are MBA dare not join this company as accountants will be more than happy to ruin your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw those accountant out of cabins and let some professionally qualified employees to lead the team.

    I worked at Kotak Life

    Pros

    The most significant pro is the money that can be made. A significant amount sold as insurance can fetch quite a sum as commission plus salary. Another great con is the relation that the employees make with the customers, which can exist even after leaving the said job.

    Cons

    Cons are basically employee politics, severe work pressure and long hours of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little lenient with the targets. and do not inflate those as the orders are passed down. Plus a little less follow up calls would make employees feel that they are a trusted by the company increasing motivation.
