    Pros

    Goof place if you are interested in an international opportunity as the bank has a lot of offices all around the world. It is very difficult to find a secondment though and only the most networked employees with tons of patience can find something.

    Cons

    No career prospects in Salinas. Very limited training available to employees and all learning has to be due to self-initiative. The culture of the bank is very much driven by "don't ask too many questions in senior management meetings" or you are considered to be disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    To be a good leader, it is not only about managing up - every single senior employee at every level is trying to do just that. Please take real interest in developing your employees.

    Pros

    At the time I worked their HSBC paid people well for a job well done. I also thought that the recent focus on employee engagement was the approach, and focused efforts not only production but also on the welfare of employees, which are the most important asset. There was also a great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    The new performance management system focuses on attaining a normative distribution and the focus is more on meeting the numbers of the distribution curve than the actual performance of the employee. It also seems that the real focus on on taking away the great bonuses and merit increases. It is called pay for performance but it seems to be don't pay for good performance.

    Advice to Management

    continue to focus on the people. This is what will make you a world class organization.
