    Pros

    Great compensation for talented individuals! Fast paced, progressive and innovative company. Diversity a plus with female leadership in exec ranks!

    Huge company, 300k employees, US operation second fiddle to U.K.; most US employees will never see exec leaders of company except through video.

    I like HSBC. Tough but fair place to work.

    Wish they still had a cafeteria with the reduced coporate meal plan. Wish they had a gym on site in NYC like UK office. Too many money scandals.

    Pros

    Many opportunities overseas if you are willing to move. Benefits and pay are good for a multinational large bank company.

    Cons

    Currently they are struggling with their staffing and expenses in a low growth economy. Every few years they seem to want to re invent the company image.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is changing too often which leads to fractured goals to contain expenses. Their job growth plans seem to change yearly.
