I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Terrific global presence, especially in Europe. The international opportunities are plentiful and their support of international management and training programs is very strong. Solid and competitive pay. Excellent Work life balance.

Cons

HSBC's recent decision to reduce their North American footprint and consolidate global business models has significantly reduced its domestic opportunities. Perhaps in a few more years, once their domestic strategy has taken shape, the US will again be a vibrent outlook for HSBC employees.

    Pros

    working from home, some ability to learn stable technologies but not enough emphasis on learning or networking with industry partners.

    Cons

    unsure of commitment to US and Midwest region, poor performance management, managers do not have time to manager their direct reports, low tolerance for risk or failure, tends to lag market in adopting technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some risks and really allow employees to control their destinies

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    HSBC had a good corporate culture overall. Employee growth was encouraged through company paid trainings, as well as, tuition assistance. There were good benefits, quarterly financial incentives, and a decent time off program.

    Cons

    Upgrades were not always communicated properly creating user issues and problems within the department that was responsible for resolving them. Favoritism within certain groups pulled down team morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting your personal dislike impact your employee's reviews.
