    Former Employee - Assistant Vice President in Buffalo, NY

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits, comparable pay scales

    Cons

    Individual managers in Compliance are disengaged from their employees as persons. Also, when the layoffs roll around (every three months), older employees are almost exclusively those shown the door. It amazes me that there hasn’t been a lawsuit. It’s also nigh impossible for a middle aged woman to live up the ladder, even with year over year outstanding performance reviews.

    An international bank which has opportunities to meet people with different backgrounds from different countries. Opportunities are available globally. The bank provides good benefits, such as medical insurance, paid vacation days.

    The bank has been struggling with cost cutting for decades. Employees have to face budget cutting, salary freeze, hiring freeze and etc.

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Midtown office location.

    Cons

    Near constant reorganizations. Staff reductions at the lowest level. Disconnected executive management from day to day activities. Excessive reliance on under trained outsourced staff. Productivity as a result is severely affected.

    Advice to Management

    You claim to care about your employees, yet most are walking on eggshells waiting for the day they will be reorged out of a job. Cut management layers not front facing staff for real savings. Stop all the outsourcing, it is only killing productivity.
