    Pros

    Quite good for starting your career thanks to its name value. I saw many people getting much better offer from other companies after two years.

    Cons

    As a big corporation, it lacks flexibility. You might feel there is not much room to grow.

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good place to work, probably better than the average company. Personally I found the location to be rather convenient to where I live but that would obviously vary.

    Cons

    To be honest I didn't find anything notable to list as a con. As with most companies, some people were unhappy with the company culture but I found it to be just fine.

    Pros

    International banking capability for those that need it, credit products catered to NRA clients, great bank for Chinese clients

    Cons

    Wants to compete in Wealth management banking arena, yet trying to acquire mass market clients-unrealistic sales goals, "bad" habits are overlooked as long as sales goals are met.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to what's going on at the branch level.....lots of games and "creative sales" are going on to meet unrealistic goals.
