    Current Employee - Intern in Paris (France)

    I have been working at HSBC France as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I did an internship in the front office and it was great if you're not looking for a full time offer afterwards. I learnt a lot and got to work with very smart and nice people

    Cons

    The salary was not very good, but then I would not have expected a good one as it was only an internship. Also, they are virtually not hiring

    Current Employee - Finance Manager in Mettawa, IL

    I have been working at HSBC France full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    some departments are very flexible and promote work life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs, on the road to offshore everything to India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think through the downstream impact on offshore everything to India, cutting cost by laying off talented local employee is not the best way to stay in business.

    I have been working at HSBC France as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good training, global network, reputation in the world recognized by almost every recruiter, emerging at Asia Pacific, working with CFO who is very kind, periodic team entertainment activities which connect to people in the group

    Cons

    Job cut plan after a fine in US, only 4 graduate recruited in 2013 in commercial banking, no promising future in Europe except for UK, so many inefficient works with permanent contract which will put back the performance of the group

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the payment is relatively low compared to other French banks, benefits not for the intern

    Doesn't Recommend
