    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Hands down experience of working in a huge setup
    - Lot of learning and travel opportunities

    Cons

    - Bureaucratic in each and every aspect. From promotions to even getting a gate pass
    - Senior management is clueless, un approachable and all they do is satisfy their massive egos.
    - HR being the weakest link. They hardly would come out and support you incase you need any help.
    - No check on promotions, same set of people get two promotions in four years, whereas there is no promotion in the team.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining talent, rather than justifying why a particular person is leaving.
    Check for signs, it is the manager people leave not the organisation
    If a manger has like 6 resignations in a years time, and still gets a promotion, he is ass kisser and nothing else.

    Pros

    Decent appraisals, Decent work environment, Good for Women

    Growth only if you know some one in mgt, Work is not a big criteria in promotions, your connections matters. Not so great environment for men, biased towards women.
