      Hell for Indian employs

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pros are only for Korean Employs

      Cons

      There are endless cons in this bank which is placed in Gurgaon India some of them are 1. No job security, people come here for growth prospects and Korean managment play with their emotions and any time they can ask you to leave without giving any proper reasons. If you think that giving best of your you can save your job then you are in a wrong bank because They get personal and kick you anytime. 2. Korean Management treats Indian employs like slaves they think that Indian are very poor and you can do whatever you want to do. They do not listen and most of the time they misbehave even CEO is also do the same. 3. They tells you something and they do exactly opposite and if something goes wrong then they ae ready to blame you. Koreans think that they can never be wrong. 4. On a daily basis they provided you memo every time they threat you to terminate. No one knows why they hire people when they do not like them. 5. No HR policy no work culture no growth you can ask these details with any Indian employs. There are list of issues which are exist in this bank to know more kindly do join this bank or ask any Indian employee. CEO of this branch is having some kind of evil in him. He is the worst senior management person I ever have had met in my whole career.
