Positive Outlook

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

Pros

One will get a chance to understand a complete sector (if he's into Global Research/Equity Research)

Cons

No option whatsoever for offshore employees to move to front-end positions. A >5-year experienced guy would be doing the same job as a fresher, except that the experienced one will be managing a few under him/her.

Advice to Management

I suggest you stop mis-representing the facts to the prospect employees about sending employees to front-end positions, variable pay etc. A big thanks to you if you can do that.

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

    Pros

    There is very fast movement in this company if you work hard. Especially if you are younger many employees seem very settled in and content so you can really do well if you put in effort.

    Cons

    A little bit monotonous. Sometimes promotions are withheld if a dept does not want to let you go. Too many performance measure and pressure sometimes.

    Pros

    Some great people
    Building relationships with customers the best part of the job and made many friends outside of the bank

    Cons

    Their main focus is sales of overpriced current accounts with no thought of customer. A lot of misselling happens just to meet targets
