    I have been working at HSBC Holdings as an intern (Less than a year)

    Great culture! Very smart, capable and accomplished employees, especially at the senior level.
    A great deal of diversity at the bank in any possible category one can think of.
    Encourages each intern to explore the other divisions of the bank.
    Strong commitment to doing the right thing and banking the right way.
    Very warm and humane atmosphere at such an established finance institution.

    Cons

    Masters students are interning with Undergraduate students. Hence, there is the occasional awkwardness during interns-only events and social gatherings due to the age gap.

    Advice to Management

    You have an amazing intership program, keep up the excellent work.

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for HSBS Mortgage Services and really loved it! For being a worldwide global bank they did a good job treating their employees well. HSBC trained and gave us opportunities to work in several different departments, if you had a willingness to learn. We were given great base pay plus monthly incentive bonuses that rewarded individuals and teams for our quality of work and production, plus excellent company benefits that included: choice of 3 medical and dental plans, 401K with company match (up to 10%-I put in 4% they put 6%), generous amount of TOP time and holiday pay, HSA with $1k annual company contribution, FSA, short and long term disability pay, discounts though corporate perks website, company paid life insurance equal to your previous year's annual pay. Additional perks also included: casual dress code, flex time, team building events, monthly dept meetings for updates that also included playing games, free lunches, dept contests, employee anniversary luncheons, in-house cafeteria, in-house gym, side by side training but the best part was I made LIFE-LONG FRIENDS!

    Cons

    Unfortunately, corporate decision was made to close the Brandon, FL facility and no longer continue servicing loans in the US, otherwise I never would have left the company!However, sufficient notice and the generous severance package that was offered made leaving easier though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be honest with employees

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for a demising division of HSBC, and having been a part of that culture with other employers in the same industry, I can say that HSBC has gone above and beyond to care for their employees. The provide just about every avenue I can think of to promote growth, work/life balance and philanthropy. I would recommend them as an employer to anyone, at any time. Management is excellent and supports their employees to grow and succeed, and the benefits are top of the line.

    Cons

    Even though they still have a corporate center in NY and a small retail banking presence, they no longer have a diversified presence in the US. Unless you are able to work remote for a global position or relocate, positions are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, just a thank you for all you have done for me! I am grateful for my tenure with your organization.
