    Pros

    International exposure, friendly environment, growth opportunities

    Cons

    Lack of investment in systems and procedures, training only for regulations

    Advice to Management

    Invest in systems and in having strong, prepared, trained professionals. Training is only focused in regulatory requirements, not preparing employees to do great job and provide a great service to clients

    Pros

    Work/Life balance, company match, remote work availability, global company & out of country career ops.

    Cons

    HSBC is exiting US and off-shoring most operational jobs. No ops for growth in States. Company hyperfocused on China amd emerging 3rd world countries. Not interested in developing US or North American market unless its to launder drug runners money or hide politicians assets.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your mind. You are a global bank or you aren't. If you are, follow the law; stop the illegal and unethical shenanigans.

    Large Company throughout the world.

    Cons

    Large Company, everything changes based on Global practices, not able to share much except that things are taken away from employees all in the name of Global standards. 2006 -2011 the company contributed 2% of salary to a pension, and it was just stopped. Most of the hiring in US has ceased.
