I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very diversified, you'll meet people from all over the world.
Committed to employee career advancement. Opportunities for promotions and growth.
Good learning experience.
Looks good on resume due to international presence.

Cons

I worked in US headquarters, and the pay was less than in US Banks for similar positions.
This is the only US Bank that doesn't observe US banking holidays (or British, for that matter)
Can require lots of overtime during deadline peaks, but management grants decent comp time in lieu.

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

    Pros

    Excellent training program for people just entering the mortgage industry. Many opportunities for increasing income, good leads and some flexibility with hours. Very into giving back to the community. Super fun sales contests.

    Cons

    Working late. Other sales people view you as someone who will take money from them. They begrudgingly help and aren't really helpful. Branch manager's are promoted because of their sales numbers, not because they have management experience or know how to motivate and train. My branch manager was cussed out by two employees and a third quit citing her micro-managerial style as the reason.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have management experience every time. An untrained manger can ruin a branch.
