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

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Midtown office location.

    Cons

    Near constant reorganizations. Staff reductions at the lowest level. Disconnected executive management from day to day activities. Excessive reliance on under trained outsourced staff. Productivity as a result is severely affected.

    Advice to Management

    You claim to care about your employees, yet most are walking on eggshells waiting for the day they will be reorged out of a job. Cut management layers not front facing staff for real savings. Stop all the outsourcing, it is only killing productivity.
