ICICI UK TREASURY

Dealer (Current Employee)
London, England

I have been working at ICICI Bank

ProsGreat work atmosphere with smaller teams compared to other banks. You get to know how all the desks perform. The UK office as started recently so you can be part of a team which is still budding. The company provides lot of training programs for the advancement and growth of the employee. They also give lot of responsibility in the initial phase of your career. The senior management keeps all the employees informed about the company strategy and how it is performing. This creates trust and assurance for the employees. The working hours are not very hectic and you can have a good life.

ConsThe products are not that complex, so the value add in terms of product knowledge may not be great. The staff is predominantly Indian which can be a problem for the people from other nationalities. The compensation is on the lower side of the industry average. The bank mainly concentrated in India, is smaller in other parts of the world. So it is not such a big player in UK and may not drive the market. The feedback process is not that well structured as in other international banks. It is done only on a yearly basis which is very bad.

Great place to learn

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Mumbai (India)

I have been working at ICICI Bank full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFast paced, high pressure, accountability and responsibility are the key take aways from any job at ICICI bank.
There is always much to learn and lots of work to do. Those taking initiative are always supported and appreciated by senior management.

ConsDue to the large hierarchy in the organisation, a lot of work can be stuck due to red tapesim. Co - ordination among teams is a very big challenge. Year end HR review is a black box and never discussed openly

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

It was horrendous

Trade Finance Manager (Former Employee)
New Delhi (India)

I worked at ICICI Bank full-time for more than 5 years

Prosjob profile foir every level, even a 12th pass can apply and be employed.

Consthere are no working hours , you are required to work 12 hours a day, have to attend review with your boss every day after the closing of branch for customers, HR is conveniently deaf and answers only when the issues cant be managed , same goes for the higher up management. A shambolic company i wud say , no respect for juniors , so if you are thinking of respect dont even think of joining this company, worst private company to work in.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe Pro active, have a HR which acts and not only just listens and clears there ears afterwards. Managers who has empathy and not just targets, my manager even visited my home as he was unable to handle branch clients in my absence(i was ill had viral fever) and forced me to work or else rating will be downgraded. managers name was pradeep garg. have better man managers. Give work life balance to your employees. do away with managers who themselves cant perform on par with their other branch colleagues.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
