    Pros

    Good organization to grow in. A lot of good professionals. There are the normal politics that are common in the industry.

    Cons

    Discretionary bonus. Playing the guessing game on how much you will get paid. Sometimes it doesn't reflect revenue production. All in all, it's not bad.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your top producers

    Great benefits package, great opportunity to learn through web base training. Internal growth opportunities

    There are some opportunities with delivering a message to staff from management. Senior mgmt was nice but front line managers have some opportunity.

    Pros

    I find the benefits to be good. They match on the first 4% of of salary that you put into your 401k. And they match 50% on a family flexible spending account. And they do believe in work/life balance.

    Cons

    The cost cutting resulting in budget decreases and staff reductions has been brutal in the US. Conversion to Agile/Scrum/DevOps methodology is slow.

    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work culture is encouraging, with good balance of individual contributions and sense of teamwork. People freely collaborate to address projects, action plans, etc. feel I add value every day. Management is forthcoming with information and provides regular feedback. I would continue to work here if possible (position ending due to wide scale layoffs).

    Cons

    Feel like the global corporation side does not want us, makes us feel like we bleeding them out. Although they also say we are servicing customers ethically and we have a lot more documentation and processes in place than the global side, it still feels like back-handed compliment

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open and honest with employees. Thanks for closing us down with extra care and consideration. Be careful of the stress on the limited number of employees remaining in order to not lose talent and knowledge that remains.
