    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    HSBC is a pleasent place to work compared to other i-banks.

    Cons

    The strong sense of being a big player in commercial and retail banking...doesnt really carry over to the i-bank.

    Go big or go home. This is what Deutsche and UBS did, and it worked (UBS is failing for other reasons).
