    Pros

    Values, Culture, work life balance, senior management

    Cons

    Politics, internal competition can be nasty

    Advice to Management

    Too many ladies in HR. Most are driven by perception and though manage well, can never take risks or appreciate risk taking in any way. Stiffling and full of favouritism. They are no leaders and will forever be followers all their lives.

    Pros

    Ok so the pro's - Very open culture, you can walk up to seniors easily and talk to them, share your ideas. Also the company wants to innovate and is very open to listening to and implementing new ideas. Depending upon the department and country that you are in, work life balance can be good or challenging.

    Cons

    Pay is not as per industry standard at least on the consumer banking side
    Changes in management in the last few years have made it very cut throat and cold! Top management especially in india was very friendly and genuinely concerned about employees. Doesn't seem to be the case now. Keep it to work and thats all they want!

    Advice to Management

    Get human again!
