Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

-great compensation
-really nice work environment
-countless out of work events and groups for employees
-opportunity to make a big impact (if you're in the right team etc..)

Cons

-turnover/movement within teams is high
-frequent changes to orginazational structure, they can change the carpet as much as hey like but it's still the same show.

Advice to Management

get serious with innovation and create roles and teams around improving the way things are done. A lot of money is spent on 3rd party products/processes etc.. which could really be developed in-house (and then sold outside the bank for even more money)
