    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    - Good and stable Investment team, CIO
    - Sells like a hot cafe so people in sales dont have to struggle to hard sell
    - Ethical and Compliant Organisation
    - Brand value is good and is market leader in the sector; consistent performer in a long run

    Cons

    - Salaries in middle and lower levels are less, Jobs ambiguous and working style adhoc
    - Few divisions are bureaucratic and old/ autocratic style of leadership
    - Culture varies across divisions and location

    Its a very good organisations for few divisions however strictly avoidable for few other divisions. A division is as good as its HOD and culture and style of work is HOD specific. Hence in interview do evaluate HOD while you are being evaluated for the role, which would help one take judicious call to join or not.
    I Have been with HDFC AMC for more than 6 years now and have a decent knowledge about all divisions.Following is my division specific take based on certain parameters

    Compliance - Very good salaries, work culture is good, Team good and work life balance is good : strongly recommended
    Financial control : - good salaries, work culture reasonably good, Team - good; work life balance is good too: recommended to join depending on role
    Investment : everything fantabulous - dream Job
    Operations - Salaries - moderate, work culture reasonably good, Team - good; work life balance less, however learning is immense - can be joined into
    Sales & CS : Salaries - low to moderate, work culture - good, team - very good, work life balance - better than competitors : can be evaluated depending on individual profile
    HR, Admin: Salaries - low, Work culture - not good; team - avoidable, work life balance - non existent, learning - minimal. Strongly avoidable.
    Corp Client Services : salaries - low, work culture - good, team - friendly , work life balance - non existent, learning moderate. avoidable but can be considered depending on individual profile

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to look beyond top level and let talent prosper rather than concentrating power and benefits at TOP. There is real intellectual talent at middle level as well, however benefits and clout being limited to Top and old people, good talent is pushed out. Also culture has to be homogeneous across the functions. There are certain people at top who mistakes themselves to be the owner of the company and mistreat and mishandle talent which goes unnoticed and unaddressed. Brand value though is very good, it takes a beating on employer brand front because of these few selfish and incapable people among top management .
    - HR policies needs to be more employee friendly
    - PMS ratings shd be shared with employees and please bring in modern approach to Appraisals
    - Aggressive , innovative strategy to be adopted for sales
    - More Employee engagement activites
    - Sectoral funds can be considered
    - Few funds like ELSS hv been consistently under-performing - can be looked at

    I worked at HDFC Asset Management Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has a superb environment. The company has lot of credibility and brand value. Most people are good. The company is good for people who love working slow and stable. Managers are really supportive in this company and really take care of you.

    Cons

    The HR processes are really in the infant stage and Think twice if you are joining the HR team.

    Advice to Management

    The HR team seriously needs to be looked at. Some Senior most guys are not bothered about employees welfare and we at locations were never responded timely by HR. They give big assurance and action is zero- only talk no action. Junior and Middle level HR guys are good.
