Felt like I had to do a review because the one posted during my exit time is fake. Started with a psychopath manager who bragged about fighting bums in his spare time. That was interesting and very stressful.Started fresh, went through some turbulence, then had some great periods of growth. Ended with a non market salary, bad community perception and deals I was sourcing were going to others. Is what it is.
Corporate Direction (China), Salary and Favourtism
Typical work day includes 70% portfolio management and 30% business development. The management structure is lean which is the best/worst part of the job. The hardest part was navigating the internal systems - there were SO MANY. The most enjoyable part was definitely the people.
Great learning experience for bankers that want to work with international businesses
Weak market presence and complicated internal infrastructure
Benefits are good. Management is understanding of work-life balance.Career advancement is available if one is willing to learn and follow policy and procedures. Decisions on hiring will depend on line managers as HR ,most of the time, mainly does the support and administration side of hiring. All in all a good place to work as HSBC brand is recognized globally.
I thoroughly enjoyed working for HSBC. at my branch there was sufficient training and grooming for advancement. I had amazing senior personelle and I would work there again in the future. Great benefits. Only downside was in my area there wasn't enough hours to keep me busy as a personal banker full time.
Just not enough hours
Many incompetent people. They never do their job on time. Making me push and ask all the time for their work so i can do mine. The guy i asked question never answers my question and lectures me about some irrelevant stuff. People, please go to reputable university. I don't know how these people got a job here. It tells you a lot about our banking system. It's not the peope, it's just CDN banking ystem.
All of it
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.
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.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at HSBC?
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.
Great opportunity for learning new policies and procedures and stay informed and up to date on trends to help clients determine the correct choice of product for their needs.
Sometimes free lunches.
Stressful environment due to sales quotas.
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!
37.5 hrs week nice
Too complex its weeks for approvals to be even considered
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.
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.
Pay and respect - collaboration
No "Job Work/Life Balance"
