    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    No experience was required, only a college degree, so I was able to learn a lot about risk and default mortgage servicing without ever having done this kind of work before. HSBC is good about hiring recent grads to learn about things on the job, where a lot of other banks want you to have experience doing this kind of work in order to get a job. I was left alone most of the time to do the work. I'm self-motivated to learn, so it was easy for me. I had a great boss, so life was good for me, I was able to work remote most days.

    Cons

    The layoff caught me by surprise with no warning. If you are not a self-starter and not able to figure out how to do the job on your own, this might not be the place for you. The managers were demoted to senior analysts before the job cuts came, so maybe I should have seen this coming. If you get a good boss your job is a breeze, but if you don't, it can be your worst nightmare. I've heard horror stories from former co-workers far too often.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more notice before letting them go. We don't make 6 figure salaries like you do, so at least give us some time to try and find other work before the pink slips. Senior management rarely in the building, remote all the time, so how can you know what's going on when you're not there?

    HSBC has extremely good benefits. Vacation, health, tuition reimbursement.

    Currently liquidating mortgage portfolio, with constant sales and lay offs it definitely creates an uneasy work environment to say the least.
