Could be better
Fast Forward Trainee - Commercial banking (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC19 December 2015
The company has a lot of silos. It is trying to safe cost and the their best practice now is to laid-off employees regardless of how long they have served the company for.

The worst international corporate in the world
Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 October 2015
No flexibility at work, do not have official breaks and only have 30 mins paid lunch hour, rest of 30 mins is unpaid.

Do not have sick leaves, personal and floating days, they group them into TOP days, your sick leaves and annual leaves are all under this TOP program.

Bad management, keep changing policy and loads of useless meetings form the management

Coworkers are not nice and very impolite, pay is bad and benefits are just so-so.

Think before getting into HSBC
Pros
nothing
Cons
too much to mention

Excellent company to work for if you want exposure to projects around the world
IT Project Manager Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 August 2015
Although, there are challenges in the standardization of their various PM methodologies and practicies, this is a great company to work for if you want exposure to global projects; Company also supports work/life balance and salary is competitive with the market. If you are a full-time employee; they will invest in your education and training.

Daily branch report balance, cash balance. Insure the staffs are up to date the systems.
I learned how to being a team player and leader at the same time.
Direct management need more communication to each others.
Amazing co-worker to work with. Team player is the key to keep the staff together.
Hardest part of the job is dealing the management not willing to communicate.

Most enjoyable of the job is always and never stop learning.
