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

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere for the most part. Senior management did take interest in middle management. Peers were cooperative and collaborated. Good benefits and perks. Positive work environment and available parking ( not common).

    Cons

    Silos within departments happened. Communications via emails too much verse face to face.

    Advice to Management

    corporate management should reconsider re-establishing Mortgage loan servicing, it can be a profitiable operation when managed properly.

    "Too many layoffs"

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Analyst in Buffalo, NY
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Generous 401k match, ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Strategic roles increase responsibility faster than the pay or job title does. Layoffs happen too often for a bank that is supposedly focused on growth. Above average performers sacrifice a lot of work-life balance. Not all people managers are trained to manage people. Extremely limited career opportunities in Buffalo.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the reputation of the bank both locally and nationally or sell the US business. Figure out a business model that doesn't rely on frequent layoffs, hiring freezes, and pay freezes.
