I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

good friendly atmosphere, hierarchy doesn't come in way of putting your idea in front of others.

Cons

career path is like a dead end (specifically talking about HSBC GLT), they look at years and an internal exam to judge candidates for promotion.

Advice to Management

be consistent. Mr X leaves and so does his grand plan of things with him. Mr Y comes in and the focus is shifted to an altogether different direction.

If top management can't be consistent, the company is surely going on the wrong path.

    Pros

    global bank, a big name with a large presence. employees are great, the facilities are good, the technology is good as well.

    Cons

    org structure has too many layers. flattening out the company would help boost efficiency and productivity. firm has a hard time retaining talent. HR is inept.
