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.

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

    Pros

    Nothing apart from the faint and I mean really faint satisfaction that you work for 3rd biggest bank in the world.

    Cons

    Its baffling how the management does not value your education
    the post they provide for freshers is the same CSE you may be a 12th, b.tech or MBA or even a CFA perusing professional or even an experienced professional who worked in the same call center industry his entire professional life.
    In the end very dissatisfying.
    Join if you want to pass away your time, get some pocket money or wait for better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employes background and try to fit them with the best possible role. If they are suitable roles for the candidates then select them, other wise dont select them.
