Diversity with the culture of Work Life Balance
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 November 2018
HSBC is one of the world's largest Bank which has diversity at work and perfect culture of work life balance. I have developed my leadership skills while working with HSBC Canada. However, there is an opportunity to focus more on talent pool/ retention and the employee engagement programs.

IDS Specialist (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 October 2018
My role is system support engineer for contact center. The company provides a great platform to employee to learn about what you are interested in. Unfortunately, there are lots of changes in Bank industry and the job security is not good in bank.

Good place to work but the growth pace is slow.
Bank Clerk (Former Employee) –  Distrito Federal24 September 2018
Definitely I would work again for them, but in the right country, the salaries in Mexico are too low and you need an other job too have a good income, moreover the time to be selected was a lot, more than 3 months! you are not able to choose an other job because you are waiting for the opportunity to join them an once you succeed it takes more than two years to take the next step and earn more money. But the environment is ok and once you achieve the income that you need is a good place to work.
Pros
benefits
Cons
too much time to hire, low income and slow growth

Work with HSBC was challenging as there were timelines to observe.
The audit was to be carried out completely for all assigned branches daily. One has to be analytical,meticulous and knowledgeable of audit guidelines to be able to detect errors/non compliance.

Management was very professional in dealing with their employees.

Co-workers were generally friendly.
Pros
Good benefits

No available position for permanent hiring
