    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Big company, have chance to meet with people coming from all over the world.

    Cons

    Study the unusually successful people you know, and you will find them imbued with enthusiasm for their work which is contagious. Not only are they themselves excited about what they are doing, but they also get you excited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear goals. It sounds obvious, but too many managers simply tread water or get pulled in too many directions instead of figuring out what the most important things for them to achieve are and focusing there.

    I worked at HSBC Holdings as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Colleagues are very helpful and nice to new employees and interns
    - Can learn about communications and strategy between head office and Taiwan office

    Cons

    - Sustainability is not really built into the operations, related activities are usually independent so it's still in the process of improving sustainability within itself
    - With the economy environment, the company has been lowering the number of employees, including the Communications and Corporate Sustainability department
