    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with highly skilled employees fresh out of university.

    Cons

    -Management led multiple recent university graduates to believe they would have the opportunity to launch a long-term Information Technology career with the company but all job roles were abruptly removed due to outsourcing.

    -No annual bonus or pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in domestic operation positions rather than outsourcing to countries that can not provide the same quality of service.
