this was a good company at that time. It did have its share of issues with management and incompetent individuals but you got to learn a lot and it was an industry leader in Compliance.

I found that the management in this company was not very support, however very divisive. Not a good learning environment, no real support, I was very unhappy in this company

Hard and tough job. Good stepping stone and benefits, but hard working place. Pressure and depressed working environment. Requires lots of unexpected request.

Good colleagues, great line manager, back office work suits me better personally. Management needs to put more effort in training temps, but does delegate work so that you learn the processes. Overall positive experience
Pros
Lunch room, free wifi, good management
Cons
Better training on the job would be nice to build on transferable skills

HSBC went through and is still very actively outsourcing most of technolgy jobs to India. They have taken the same approach and similar direction to most financial institutions. Offshore as much as possible to maximize profits.
Pros
Not many at all
Cons
no career opportunities

- A great place to learn, with good management and co-workers - Overall attitude in the office is warm and welcoming. - Everyone is encouraged to participate when possible. - As with any job, there is always stress, but i am happy that it comes from the job itself and not from anywhere else - All-together, it is a great environment to learn about the financial industry
Pros
Lots to learn
Cons
Can be stressful

Tasks are very repetitive and do not offer much experience, not much room for advancement within the team, awesome co-workers, worst shift work - no 2 consecutive days off, often asked to work 6 days a week, one extreme shift (start 7 am one day, two days later, start 4pm), management dismissive of suggestions. Great entry level position for students and young professionals. Apply within after 1 year as the organization is keen to internal hiring.
Pros
Lunches provided by building management, great co workers, easy tasks
Cons
inconsistent shift work, dismissive management

Your entire career here will be kissing rear ends for the privilege of being spoken down to everyday. It's one thing to be spoken down to by, say, the CEO, but when its a consistent stream of middle management donkeys with no real education or self worth, it becomes a little frustrating. I would say the pay is decent and security is sound, but the culture is very poor and riddled with agency-principal conflicts straight out of a management 101 textbook. Might be for you, not for me!
Pros
Good pay
Cons
poor culture, ineffective and inexperienced leaders
