old boys (and girls) club - not welcoming to new people

HSBC is an amazing brand, and externally it is seen as an amazing place to have on your resume, unfortunately in my experience is was entirely the opposite, the worst place I have ever worked for nearly every reason imaginable. The only plus is that there are some amazing people there, skilled, talented, and professional but sadly they aren't words i'd use for any of the management staff in the HR team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove the old dead wood in your management layers, they have been there too long and are only interesting in padding their own desks and those of their mates.

    Pros

    A nice environment to work. People are nice, helpful and approachable. Makes you feel comfortable. Emphasize alot on work life balance. Have good non-monetary benefits.

    Cons

    May take quite a while to get promoted. All depends on whether there are vacancies at the top.
