    I worked at HSBC GLT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Best in class IT captive
    Work in a multi cultural environment
    Extensive repository of banking domain knowledge bank

    Cons

    Typical Indian work culture - Hypo critic and high nepotism
    Failure of top level management to focus on high end work resulted in more of body shopping and low end SDLC work as the focus was more on increasing head count and increase their little fiefdoms
    Frequent 'strategy' changes
    Plateau'd career for people with 15+ years of workex

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is for the expat/on-shore management - Please get rid of the flab / top-heavy structure especially delivery heads and above who are rusted and have been with GLT for more than 5 years. This is the only way to bring in a fresh perspective and have a fresh lease of life
