I worked at HSBC Holdings as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Worked with teams across the globe and most people were friendly and although incredibly busy, were easy to get along with once you managed to get a meeting with them face to face.

Cons

Like any large bank, emails get lost and it's hard to get timely responses from people but it didn't turn me off the organisation.

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Large company, with a good name and strong international presence. Looks good at least on your resume if you want to have some large financial institution on it.

    Cons

    Management is very poor and do not care about their workers. Poorly executed strategy and constantly in a rush to do things without thorough planning. Will always be a Tier 2 bank in Canada so it is better to work for the big 5.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees, especially when you claim you have an open door policy.
