    Pros

    Excellent work environment, scope of exponential growth for aspirants. Flexible and employee friendly, best paymaster in the industry.

    Cons

    There is a stagnancy after 5 to 6 years down the line,

    Advice to Management

    Top line profitability is shared with country heads, Business heads. However, the grass root employees should know the business model and how their contribution counts in the success of their respective cost centers. This is lacking and should be shared by line managers.

    Pros

    No stress at work, can manage work life balance quite easily.
    Employee friendly, work becomes repetitive after a year and so once mastered, one can spend lesser time at office and ofcourse salaries increase.
    Best Pay/Work ratio
    You have a lot of time you can use it as you want
    access to every database can up your learning as much as you want about anything under the sun

    Cons

    Lesser transparency in promotions
    some undeserving, funny guys at the top - not all may be 30% are like that. 30% are good. remaining 40% have become lethargic and aren't just bothered

    Advice to Management

    resign soon

    Plethora of projects in the banking sector.

    Cons

    Not a paymaster

    Respect for peoples aspirations should be given prime importance.
