    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers are great and I could not ask for a better team to work with or to be a part of. When I started, we had a great culture and really embraced the growing start up vibe. On a team level we are there to help each other every step of the way.

    Cons

    Our comp plan was recently changed to the point where many of us cannot afford to leave. We are completely under appreciated. Pay us less and expect us to do more? Not really a good way to run a business.
    I would not recommend joining the company at this time. They are so focused on becoming public that they have lost their full sense of what HSBC is about.

    Advice to Management

    spends a ton of time trying to find the right fit, treating us the way you currently are is not going to help keep good employees around or hire the "right fit".

    Pros

    Ample opportunities to contribute to the company. Rapid changes keep us motivated. Value driven culture keeps you sane. High level management is really appreciated for the strategic decisions that are being made keeping the values in mind.

    Cons

    Payment is very conservative. Growth is too slow. Management probably should shift mindset from conventional thinking and provide opportunities/growth to people who are performing rather than to the ones that have been around longer.

    Advice to Management

    Top talent is being lost to competitors due to payment and the point mentioned above. This needs a serious consideration.
