Compliance (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 29 May 2018
One's experience will greatly depend on your role/responsibility level and team lead. It can go from a supportive and friendly team to bullying, you will have to earn your $ and reputation, which still won't guarantee your longevity. This being said, if you are very proactive there are opportunities to learn (on your own) and gain valuable expertise. Work life balance will depend on your ambition, 9-5 won't cut it if you want to get noticed.

HSBC is of one of the world’s largest financial services organizations and I was fortunate to have worked with this Global Bank. I had the opportunity to work with some great Managers and colleagues and have developed my skills to achieve my career aspirations.
HSBC offers a bespoke approach to flexible working that enables staff to choose a work pattern that suits them Example: Work from home option.
HSBC values diversity and inclusion and supports all such initiatives Example: South Asian Network for Diversity & Inclusion (SANDI), Sponsor Sports activities such as Canadian Corporate Cricket League.
HSBC also provides with professional development and career opportunities. It was due to this Global Bank's footprint in different countries that enabled me to smoothly immigrate to Canada.

The department I worked in was a very experienced with many long time employees (several had 20 to 30+ years). There was not much opportunity for advancement within the department as it was quite small.
FCR (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 2 May 2018
Good pay / good balance. However if you are looking to make a difference with your career / life, this is not the place for you. You may have the chance to work with a good team but if not, HIGHLY Bureaucratic. It'll feel like you're just a cog in a machine.
good pay, good work /life balance
Bureaucratic. Black / White thinking. Paperwork for the sake of paperwork

Commercial On-Boarding Officer (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 14 April 2018
My day contributes to multitasking by answering emails, calls and approving pending applications. If there are corrections or stipulations I need completed by our ASM team I reach out to them . I ensure compliance and policies are all met while adjudicating applications. I have learned lots and continue to learn as my time progresses here. Such as becoming an expert at reading Equifax and Trans Union. I am excellent with excel and other Microsoft software. My speed on approving loans while ensuring all due diligence is met is great too. I continue to enhance in my education as I am currently enrolled in the CFA level 1 . The hardest part about this job is when I am declining applications knowing the customer is in need of the loan but does not meet requirements. I enjoy my work life balance by being able to focus at work but also during breaks be able to enjoy down time in our quiet room or engage in fun activity in the games room.
