    Former Employee - Branch Manager in New Delhi

    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.

    Pros

    Great learning experience, involvement with seniors in discussions, leadership is encouraged, some of the assignments had been very innovative.

    Cons

    No work life balance at all. For good performance reviews, it is important that your boss likes you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance needs to be paid attention to. Sitting long hours is encouraged and pressured - not good.
