    Pros

    - International Bank allowing flexibility for those interested in the opportunities living abroad
    - Strong employee networking groups to help grow professional development
    - Strong brand

    Cons

    - Continue to cut jobs across the Group
    - Environment not sustainable asking for double / triple the work
    - Gap exists with what is communicated by Senior / Executive Management expressing both work life balance and best place to work with Middle Management
    - Job ratings (performance reviews) really mean nothing with bell curves used as a basis for distribution of job ratings

    Advice to Management

    - Care more about the employee versus the share holder
    - Continue to be involved in the community to empower your employees to do more both in and out of work
    - Ensure middle management follows through with culture transformations


  2. mix of good and bad, too frequent management shuffles change the direction of work every few months

    Pros

    good friendly atmosphere, hierarchy doesn't come in way of putting your idea in front of others.

    Cons

    career path is like a dead end (specifically talking about HSBC GLT), they look at years and an internal exam to judge candidates for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    be consistent. Mr X leaves and so does his grand plan of things with him. Mr Y comes in and the focus is shifted to an altogether different direction.

    If top management can't be consistent, the company is surely going on the wrong path.
