No opinion of CEO

Pros

Work life balance, had some good leaders at one point, not afraid to spend money on good ideas and developing talent

Cons

Slow moving, negative message to all non-bank employees (i.e. finance company employees), opportunities to work internationally are published but very difficult to get.

Advice to Management

Develop and communicate a long term plan for the non-bank employees in North America - stop talking about tearing down the silos and actually do it.

    Pros

    Great product set, but selling them is a nightmare...

    Cons

    The place is a shambles, paperwork is a nightmare, management are so bad they are all looking after there own job, so no one will say yes to anything. Management are so out of touch with the sales force its a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what we have to sell, how we open accounts, what paperwork is useful.
    Most of all, learn how to create. PDF file that works.... E.g. Test the paperwork before unleashing garbage forms, again and again and again!
    Ohh and just tell us we are being sold, rather than pretend HSBC USA will be the same size in a year.
