    Pros

    Fast Paced company. Opportunities for growth. Increases the skills required to get the job done. Experience gained is valuable for future endeavors.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Purely a sales oriented approach and the customers and employees are both grilled to increase the sales. Sales target oriented. No holidays. You will have to work on off days frequently. Also, on working days too you end up being in office for 10-14 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Should offer better work life balance for the employees. The management is stuffed with too many old fashioned managers. This might lead to lot of dissatisfaction in employees, poor work quality and dent to the bank image.
