    Former Employee - Wealth Advisory
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Brand Value helps in getting business easily.

                  Very good business process which helps in acquiring and
                  engaging clients for business.

    Cons

    Middle level management especially from AVP to VP level (except a
                  few)not at all competent enough to guide properly their
                  team resulting into frustration and confusion.

                  Beurocratic work culture if you dont have GOD father then
                  forget that you will grow in the bank

                  New Innovations are not welcome unless untill some strong
                  group of people working for you

                  Too much infact unrealistic pressure for sales of Life
                  Insurance

                  Technically still bank has to work a lot to compete with
                  peers.

                  Very Arrogant behavior by most of the senior members.

                  Exploitation of manpower at many areas where many
                  employees even having good performance track record never
                  get a fair chance to show there contribution just because
                  they didnt get the right opportunity with right department
                  in the bank. Many people are given or overburden by
                  useless work resulting into wasting of there time and
                  Organizations money.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your employees and those staff who are many a times
                  designed as face of the bank with respect and care

                  Please do not rely only on the feedback of middle level
                  management for anything.

                  Take actions on the negative feedbacks given by employee
                  or ex-employee if comes to you by HR or any chance try to
                  rectify the errors.

                  Dont show arrogance the lower level and middle level
                  management will learn the same and then it will be trend.
                  Many a times clients also complains of the arrogant
                  behavior by staff. Staff obviously whatever see will
                  learn.

                  Try to be a trend setter for the subordinates behave like
                  a leader and not RULER.
