High pay, great benefits

Vice President (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPay is high and benefits are very competitive in the industry. 401k match of 6% is great. Freedom to work from home.

ConsCost cutting culture, feels like they are always announcing new restructuring and layoffs. Seem to overlook US division in favor of international operations.

Advice to Senior Managementnone

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bureaucratic

Technology Manager (Former Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I worked at HSBC Holdings

ProsHSBC has locations throughout the north east, Chicago and Vancouver. These are actually decent places to work and live. In the north east, New York and better than Jersey City.

ConsVery command and control oriented. They are trying to change things now, but overall, it is a very bureaucratic place to work. Very Matrix oriented.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to delegate more. Give more control and responsibility to the employees. Invest more in teams and be forgiving of mistakes.

HSBC Tehnology - loosing its relevance in NYC area

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at HSBC Holdings

ProsGood work life balance. Flexible hours. Easy work schedule. Low pressure job. Excellent exposre to working in a truly global environment and matrix organisation

ConsLow salary. Poor/no career growth options in NYC area. Not so recognised for jobs in Wall Street. sometimes laid back so demotivating

Advice to Senior ManagementThere has to be innovation and a strategy to lead the world from the front. Ther has to be more agility and quick decision making. That will require a culture change but will be essential for continued growth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
