    I have been working at ICICI Bank

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    Former Employee - Branch Manager in New Delhi (India)
    Former Employee - Branch Manager in New Delhi (India)

    I worked at ICICI Bank full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary is comparable or some times even better then the industry. English medium employment (No absure in hindi like HDFC Bank)

    Cons

    Retail banking is hard manual labor. May be company is not at fault. But any way, you cannot make your mark felt without being very tough task master with your subordinates. Work pressure will make you do mis-selling, but company will not own you when you get caught by the regulators. Hence, you are like mercenaries, who cannot point back to there hirer if caught.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring some life to the people in the grind. You may be raking in most of the moolah, but at least create good working condition and some joy of the poor laboureres in the branch whom you lovingly call assistant managers and above.
