    Pros

    How successful you are here is determine by how much you put into it. In other words if you work long hours and have a "get it done" attitude then you'll do fine. They do emphasize work life balance so you are given plenty of family time. Actually, if I recall correctly you must take a mandatory one week vacation. No email or anything work related is allowed during this week. That's always a nice thing.

    Cons

    I really didn't experience anything I would consider negative working at HSBC. I was treated right and really enjoy my job. It's a shame I had to leave.
