HSBC offers a unique clientele and banking experience. HSBC is a suitable workplace for the mobile professional who are willing to seek roles in other markets. Within Canada, HSBC struggles to keep up with big 5 especially in terms of local IT and people resources. Most major management decisions are made out of group offices in London or New York. Pay is at or above the salary offered by the Big 5 local banks.
