    I have been working at HDFC Bank full-time

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities..! working at HDFC teaches you a lot be it the financial services area.. business perspective or growth as a mature & responsible person.

    Pay is good but only you reach at a level in the management.

    Cons

    The behaviour of management is bad.. the overall employee morals are down and HR is a puppet to management with no useful powers. If you are in branch banking you would rather prefer to work at war front.
    Also there is a 3months notice period with no pay!
    Biased pay structure
    Untimely reimbursement structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The vision to grow is understandable but it has to be inculcated within the employees and not something which is forced upon in terms of targets and no.s

    I have been working at HDFC Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to experience growth, volume, organization good to experience sales centric organization

    Cons

    No focus on employee growth, development and careers of employees. The organization has literally no long term focus on people development and careers of employees. Its operating on a expolitative approach and is not interesting in rotating talent or thinking about their careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long term from an organization perspective - think beyond your bank balances. learn to share success with teams.

    Could improve processes and growth opportunities. also limited scope for trying different things at the firm.
