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

    Pros

    Relatively good job stability, pay, and benefits. Was a good place to work years ago.

    Cons

    The company is ridiculously bureaucratic. People say they are busy, but most of what is happening is meeting after meeting with very little or no action. The idea that HSBC can implement systems on a global scale and have decision making for 80+ countries in a few people's hands has created a culture that is slow to move, blames others, and is hyper-political. It is a frustrating place to work if you want to learn and have a sense of accomplishment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to regional decision making, especially in regards to IT systems for lines of business that are not naturally global.
