    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Commonwealth Bank of Australia full-time

    Pros

    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!

    Advice to Management

    As a startup finance company in india, expectations from employees are high. Please try to fix the gap.
