    Initial package is the only attraction here in CBA india!

    Cons

    This review is particular about CBA india. No proper office floor, works at a client floor with very minimal facilities. No cab, no work from home option not even an ID card for employees. Login/logouts are strictly monitored. Won't even get a loan from banks since this is not listed anywhere!
