    Pros

    Great benefits chance to grow in your career and extensive training opportunities

    Cons

    Underwriters and Processor Associates act as if everything should be handed to them on a silver platter. The people who have been with the company for less than 5 years have a better outlook than the 20+ year-still-in-the-same-job-because-of-their-own-lack-of-motivation-and-constant-whining. That really was the worst part of working there.

    These "old timers" act as if their is a conspiracy, when management breaks their necks trying to keep people happy...which is absurd. It makes for an undesirable, high school like atmosphere that makes you dread coming to work. My advice - get rid of the complainers and start fresh with people who appreciate the fact that they have a job.

    I have never worked for a company where mangement goes overboard like this trying to keep staff happy. Gift cards, free lunches, lots of meetings and an open door policy and the funny thing is, the biggest complainers probably get the least amount of work done, yet expect the world to be handed to them.

    THAT is why morale is rotten. It is the staff not management that needs to be fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bending over backwards for staff that will complain no matter what you do. You are doing your best and realize that the associates who have not taken personal responsibility to develop their own career will never be satisfied.

    Good place to work until the last few years - HSBC wants out of North America

    Pros

    Work life balance, had some good leaders at one point, not afraid to spend money on good ideas and developing talent

    Cons

    Slow moving, negative message to all non-bank employees (i.e. finance company employees), opportunities to work internationally are published but very difficult to get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and communicate a long term plan for the non-bank employees in North America - stop talking about tearing down the silos and actually do it.
