Very poor management & favoritism
HSBC claims they value their employees & I do agree there are good benefits & programs, however the management is the worst. Those favored will get a higher wage & annual bonuses. The CSR's are paid so little. There are branch's that are very rude & do not care for their employees well-being.

Very poor and selfish management. Managers act very bossy and are not helpful. All they care about is sales and numbers. Working there does not feel like making a difference in client's lives financially. It feels like we're just getting them to buy products that may or may not help them.

Lack of respect for Employees
I had a ‘bait and switch’ situation that was never rectified. Complete disrespect for my position from the highest up management. I would never recommend HSBC to anybody, for any reason.

Great learning opportunity and plenty of interaction with co workers and seniors
HSBC provide ample opportunity to work with different unit groups and increase your learning curve. Interaction with senior management takes oftenly and they welcome your opinion and ideas.

Very good bank with benefits above par
European bank going through heavy restructuring. Usually a moderate work load but very generous benefits compared to competitors. Opportunity for advancement might take some time but there is job stability.

Okay place to work
My time at HSBC was too short for me to elaborate and describe about my time and experience while at HSBC Canada.

My experience with the manager I reported to was great.

Too Complex
This organization too big to function simply. Too much bureaucracy. Too much scare tactics. No direction. No one will guide you to learn job. Or correct you if needed. Just punish when mistake is made. Not fun!
Pros
37.5 hrs week nice
Cons
Too complex its weeks for approvals to be even considered

Great working environment
Great working environment. The management is quite supportive. Being a global organization, you get exposure to both local and international markets. The organization believes in taking good care of their staffs. The organization also likes to keep customers in the heart of everything they do.

HSBC again
A typical day at work was like any other work environment. Staff was kind and work was enjoyable.

I learned global risk management and compliance.


Work culture could be more "Job Work/Life Balance". The hardest part of the job was it was very far from home with no "Job Work/Life Balance".


I was well paid for working at HSBC and well respected.
Pros
Pay and respect - collaboration
Cons
No "Job Work/Life Balance"

Best environment to work
Everyone in the office is genuinely kind, caring, and can always find the light in things. Working in such a time sensitive role, day to day tasks can be stressful, however assistance and guidance is always provided from other staff and help you feel comfortable. Everyone knows how to have a good time in a work place environment

Hard working

Not the best company to work for
Work isn’t rewarded appropriately
Everyone is ensuring their job-security

No-one cares about onboarding

Temporary job-contracts are prevalent and most of the jobs are outsourced

Current department has much to be desired
Current Department very stressful to work for. Many coworkers found HSBC more positive to work for once they left current department. Very supportive employee research groups outside of regular work.
Pros
Top End Campus for work

Ended with a constructive dismissal
I was with this bank for 8 years, the first 6 were great. Then they added in new management and everything went downhill. They constantly set me up to fail and then reprimanded me for it

Production and efficiency are most important in HSBC
Friendly working environment
Good benefit package

Long vacation day

Multicultural workplace

The operation line has a terrible monitoring system would make the worker being treated as a robot
