I worked at HSBC France as a contractor (more than a year)Pros
I always had great projects to manage with wide spectrum (geographical, functionnal), great autonomy and many responsabilities.
World organisation very structured with centralized functions (global services centers) and small local operationnal teams that means frequent contacts (calls, videos, mails, chats, ...) with foreign teams including in very far locations => very interesting sharing of vision and experiences.Cons
Very structured world organisation means sometimes a little bit complex to understand or to navigate in or too administrative for simple tasks...
Management can sometimes seem a bit hard, when local activities are offshored to global service centers in foreign low costs countries : no real recognition of the work done or of the value of people ...work hard but constantly take care of your position !Advice to ManagementAdvice
A recognized and appreciated entreprise is mainly composed of humans and not only of cost centers.RecommendsPositive Outlook
