      Pros

      Salary. You will prepare harder to get out of this company.

      Cons

      I literally have nightmares of my manager calling me. Talking about work life balance, you can forget about the life part. Not even a pinch of respect for employees. Literally counts the hours of the work and asks about what i did in remaining time. Please don't apply to this company no matter how much salary they offer you.

      Don't go by the tag 'Best Company to Work For', it's murkier

      Pros

      Get to know a lot about the financial services sector, but you get to know that at any prominent bank, also they have great customer service

      Cons

      Leaders are rigid, toxic work environment, HR has no role to play and ER will not help no matter how serious your grievance. There is a culture of pleasing your boss even though he/she sets unrealistic work expectations. There is no respect of work life balance. the internal surveys conducted to guage how the employees feel about the company are a sham, as the people manager will force you to fill in good ratings.
