    Pros

    Time pass culture, tea shops near by, no real intellectual task.

    Cons

    Managers love only girls, they hire girls, they promote girls, really dumb girls, if you want to go to onsite, be a girl, get a boyfriend, husband at onsite and just fly. Give any professional reason you are doomed. Terrible biased working culture, this is across projects not a particular one. Talk about technology, they have nothing which could give you an edge in market. Stay away from HSBC guys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They won't listen to anything, no point saying nothing.

    Pros

    work environment is good and nothing else

    Cons

    Please dont work with Middle east department. All South Indians follow racism here. your work is not identified and undue advantage is taken. All u need here is favourism and you will be screwed in name of performance for not doing something innovative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management sucks and no onsite opportunites and very less growth and increments.

    Pros

    Flexibility, work-life balance, sports and activities

    Cons

    Bad politics, favoritism, blame games

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advice, change the way the middle management is functioning. Strengthen the support to junior level workers, through HR forums or Senior management forums. Initiate a employ grievance system and find out the best solution to avoid such kind of bulling management. The reputation of GLT is getting worst day by day. The days are gone, when deserving people were appreciated for their work.

    Pros

    Fixed pay, no variable component

    Cons

    So much Bureaucracy that if you are not in the good books of your manager you can't survive
    The lowest layer of the HSBC business, work wise - leftover work comes to the company
    If you wish to learn, its certainly the worst place. No domain knowledge, work not good, nothing to learn. People don't work here, they simply pretend they are working
    Work life balance as people doesn't exist in every project..working 9-6 everyday provides no flexibility. Even if you are idle, you are supposed to sit and pretend in office..
    Work culture sucks. People are more bothered about your work than theirs.
    No onsite, Promotion on need basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the culture of the company otherwise employees will leave as fast as they join
    Provide regular promotions and better onsite opportunities

    Pros

    - I can't see any one. previously it was onsite but nowadays there are onsite but silly managers want to go first. Perks in onsite also not good, nowadays people who never visited onsite are going else everyone rejects onsite in GLT.

    Cons

    - Good for lazy people... who don't want to do anything in life
    - Lot's of un-necessary process (some time work delays, postponed even cancelled due to this)
    - Saturday n Sunday work culture. Managers count saturday and sunday also in estimation to save there ass.
    - GLT is abusing HSBC brand name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they can't improve... even after a job cut off they haven't learned. I bet none of sacked GLT managers will get a job outside...believe me and check if you know any one...
