Approves of CEO

I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Opportunities to work in other countries (secondments) - also an opportunity to meet with people from other countries, diverse working team (mainly virtual), generous bonus scheme although the mechanism is a bit unclear.

Cons

Base salary is below the curve, multiple layoff rounds that span many months, detrimental and takes the sense of security out from the employees. Lots of late night and early morning meetings due to the geographical area of the team members.

Advice to Management

If cost cutting is needed, do it in as little rounds as possible
