    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Global presence, focused heavily on Asian markets.

    Cons

    Not the strongest of presences in the U.S. Nothing special in terms of facilities in the NY. Very basic in terms of benefits. Worse of all, it is simply not a very happy place to work at. Just run of the mill, basically.

    Advice to Management

    Commit or leave.


  2. "Very large financial services company, network your way to the top and be noticed!"

    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Lots of Departments, Lines of Business and Regions to move to
    -Not high stressed or super fast paced
    -Never worked long hours
    -Fun group activities depending on your dept
    -Very diverse in culture

    Cons

    -All employee is a number
    -Lots of propaganda with no follow through from leaders
    -Managers aren't very attentive to your career
    -Sink or Swim environment

    Advice to Management

    Follow through and don't just have speeches, most of your dreamy plans does not trickle through. Hiring consultants to put in place organizational standards does not make it a happier place to work.
