    Pros

    Sorry but I have no been able to figure out any.

    Cons

    Processes, Senior Middle Management-RBM, AM etc, Abusive culture, Poor Delegation of Power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegation of Power should be made available to roles which are managing profit centers. Management must do away with culture of using abusive language with employees/staff. They should not force staff to sell insurance products, which propagates institutions like COBRAPOST. New joinees should be hand holded in better way, they come with frsh idea, but all the existing staff, who thinks they are best in the industry try to impress there though process, without recognizing their views. SORRY to be working with such a company.
