Former Employee - Manager in Mettawa, IL

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

Pros

Global banking organization with opportunities for secondments and advancement. During my time with the organization (7+ years), the company "owned" its issues and seemed to attempt to deal with its problems.

Cons

The US operations still appears to be a group of separate businesses (with "us" and "them" attitudes) so even at a country-level it felt like working for different companies.

    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Easy going atmosphere, great fringe benefits (401K, health insurance, vacation, etc).

    No job security, Advancement is based on who you know, No raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back incentives; even though closing up mortage business in U.S. still need motivation for those of us left.
