Pros

HSBC is committed to work life balance, actively promoting work-from-home opportunities, encouraging employees to take care of personal issues whenever necessary and allowing time-off and ad-hoc working environments to accommodate all situations. The benefits are excellent, with HSBC paying a very high proportion of medical and dental and matching 401k contributions at a level higher than most.

Cons

Pay is not what it is at Investment Banks. Facilities are less than top-notch. The lower level worker talent is not at the level one might expect at a large bank.

Advice to Management

Upgrade your facilities in New York.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Ability to work from home / remotely. International travel. Training. Work-life balance.

    Cons

    Technology is a little dated. The migration to IBM WebSphere portal is more of a road block to application development than it is a tool.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be open to new technologies, and not be stuck with the limited offerings of vendors such as IBM as they only hold back creativity.
