    Not a very good experiance

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsLooks very good on your resume and it is an internaitonally recognized brand name in the financial service industry, especially in areas like corporate banking, trade services and payments and cash management.

    ConsNo transparency, Management keeps changing and to create impact whatever the previous management did it is immediately put on hold and reassessed and a new initiative begins

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good name to have on your resume, high turnover at work

    Account Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsHSBC is a big company, the employee benefits are fair, employee discounts are good. Generally younger employees you are working with can make for easy day.

    ConsHSBC uses paper for everything, it is like being back in the 1980s with the amount of paper you have to deal with. Many manual processes, a lot of opportunity to make mistakes and be blamed for it. They will be interested in you doing work that is not on your job description. Banking will make mistakes with your personal accounts, HSBC Bank Canada is a mess.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart process of automation yesterday, eliminate manual processes and roadblocks. Develop leadership mentorship programs for front line managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This is essentially an Analyst position

    Senior Systems Technician (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat business environment that encourages interacting between departments as well as countries.

    ConsIn terms of IT, an extreme lack of regard by senior management which could be related to the Head Office being in Pacific Time but North America's business sector is based in Eastern Time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess favouritism would be great, especially in terms of our Vancouver/Toronto dynamic which I have heard from other departments outside of IT.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Merge Finance to the bank

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsIt's a way to get to working for HSBC (the bank). If you love to relocate or work anywhere in the world, this might be the place for you

    ConsFinance is a small branch of the bank and honestly it's not a good place to work. I've heard that on the other side working for HSBC Canada or US is great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFollow processes when it comes to project development.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
