Perhaps not the best place for an ambitious person to start out

I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good work - life balance and the culture wasn't excessively demanding (or at least no more so than you would expect at a 2nd tier investment bank). They were also good about getting you training when you asked for it, but you had to be the one actively seeking out opportunities for development.

Cons

The organisation was very slow at adapting to change and not very innovative. It felt like a place you come to retire rather than to start your career. Also didn't spend too much time/resources in encouraging employees' personal and professional development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to development! Especially among junior employees.
