    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere for the most part. Senior management did take interest in middle management. Peers were cooperative and collaborated. Good benefits and perks. Positive work environment and available parking ( not common).

    Cons

    Silos within departments happened. Communications via emails too much verse face to face.

    Advice to Management

    corporate management should reconsider re-establishing Mortgage loan servicing, it can be a profitiable operation when managed properly.

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Business users are awesome and very supportive. Good work/life balance. Challenging work environment. Bank is positioned for growth in the next few years.

    Cons

    IT is going thru internal "Transformation" (i.e. changes). The goal seems to be to transfer IT work to offshore/consultants and only keep leadership/supervisor roles onsite / inhouse. Too much stress on the bottom line and operating costs.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your workforce to grow and adapt to the changes in direction. Better training and coaching needed and employees need to be groomed to fit the vision of senior management of where the workforce needs to be.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, clean working environment, work-life balance

    Cons

    Consistent Layoffs which makes for an uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of releasing experienced employees, release the inexperienced managers who don't know how to effectively communicate their expectations to their employees. Offer more training/ certification and further education opportunities. Your managers play favoritism to employees who suck up to them instead of employees that work hard everyday to complete their goals and to make you look good.
