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

    Pros

    - Salaries offered are on par with other companies and in some areas better than others.
    - Work-life balance is completely dependent on department you work for.

    Cons

    - Poor senior management.
    - Managerial staff lack even basic communication skills and cant lead or motivate people.
    - Work culture degrading with every passing year.

    NOT A GREAT PLACE TO WORK ANYMORE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Its not always about making profits and cutting costs in whatever way it is possible.
    - Learn to value people and the serious efforts they make in turning things around.

    Pros

    Best financial captive organization to work for. The technology and products are truly innovative. There are several trainings provided that are technical, functional and behavioral. The appraisals are good and give you a double digit hike in most cases.

    Cons

    Leaves are lesser than other companies but on the whole its fairly balanced.

    Pros

    Just work at 1% of your overall capability and you'll get 9 to 10% hike easily. Make a trusted 'best' slave of your manager and maybe you can get 15-17% easily.

    Cons

    Many. Let me list them -
    1. No onsite for new joinees for upto 3-4 years of your joining the company. (1-2 years if you are a lady and your first and true love is your manager.)
    2. Now let's say you slogged for 3-4 years and bingo after every one from your team has visited onsite, you got this BIG Opportunity. You will only be sent for 3 or max 6 months.
    3. This is the sad part, even though you get an onsite they will pay you 20 pounds daily (bare minimum to help you survive in London!) Gone are your plans of having your own home back here in India. Stay homeless on the streets. They really don't care!
    4. Ok, you are making accusations or cribbing about the fact that "How can you make big in the company", congratulations you are fired!!!
    5. "Do something new, learn new tech!" Well management won't promote this thinking, Thinking you would leave the company!
    6. MAPS by Sapience. This is a work hours monitoring tool and I guess everybody knows what the tool might be doing. So 'They' now have a point how to not give you rating!

    Many more but I am tired now!

    Pros

    Good techies available at the onshore locations to learn new things. You can remain technical as long as you want to so long career growth is not the agenda.
    Work life balance is generally good.
    Opportunity to take permanent transfer to other group entities.
    Compensation is pretty good.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are limited as the company is not going to grow much.
    Management is not great and will spend time doing silly things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the performance management process.
    Ensure career growth for people in the technical stream.
