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

    Pros

    1. "Family" based; if you have worked there before, you will most definitely be considered again.
    2. Relatively competitive salary compensation
    3. Offers a lot of on-the-job training courses

    Cons

    1. Very bureaucratic. Getting anything done there takes a long time.
    2. If you are only interning, you generally don't have much access to helping out with anything besides cleaning up old Excel files
    3. Although there are on-the-job training courses, most of it is not relevant to the work you will be assigned to, if you are assigned anything at all.

    Advice to Management

    1. Should make decisions about internship application statuses quicker
    2. Should be better prepared to assign work for interns, especially during the first week


  2. Helpful (3)

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A good salary (to keep people n the job) and benefits.

    Cons

    If you've never worked anywhere else, this might seem like a great company to work for. However, if you've worked elsewhere, you'll see it for the nightmare it is! There is NO training. The systems are outdated and antiquated so there is no way to 'figure things out' -- which explains why so many work 12 hr days sometimes 6 days a week just to keep up!!! The extend of my training was to 'read the manual'. Turnover is EXTREMELY HIGH due to systems and management.

    Advice to Management

    Develop an actual training program for those you didn't hire fresh out of University/college. Hire leaders who actually inspire others to follow!!!
