Pros

Company reputation, history, good diversity and opportunities for training. Company policies for employee support are also really good.

Employees are highly skilled with a lot of knowledge and expertise in their area of work. The learning experience could also be quite rich depending on the team that you work for.

Cons

Work environment is quite bureaucratic and can get highly political. Sometimes you can see personal agendas at play and the work environment could be individualistic.

Recommends

    Invest more time and funds in young and fresh talent who possess the potential to help company outclass its competitors such as HSBC...
