    Pros

    Work life balance, office culture are all good. People are good. Lot of learining opportunities involved.

    Cons

    Salary hike should be based on performance appraisal, also incentives should be given based on how critical client is the employee handling.

    More transparency should be brought in to judge all these factors.

    Advice to Management

    Should not be more objective.

    Pros

    Compensation, work-life balance

    Compensation by general standards is really high. The sad bit is that it doesn't compare much to the front office. Being a back office, the office is slightly shielded from cycles in the economy.

    Cons

    Exit opportunities are limited. Attrition rate is really high. Little scope of movement to front office jobs within DB. Management does not seem very investment in their juniors.

    Advice to Management

    Take an active interest in the human capital invested here. That would go a long way forward in ensuring that people are equipped to handle responsibilities and assume leadership roles.

    Pros

    Type of work varies and career depends a lot on the desk you work for. Senior management bothers much about compliance these days.

    Cons

    Switching roles isn't straightforward. Processes are slow and time consuming. Working hard and delivering results may get unnoticed unless you highlight them.

    Pros

    If you are one of the kind, you can make through all the obstacles to a niche for itself.

    Management or boss won't care a single bit.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at the organization as an integral part of the group as a whole, not merely as an offshore service Centre.
