    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Well known global bank with strong network and full range of products available to both corporate and personal customers. Largest foreign bank in Australia.

    Cons

    As a foreign bank in Australia, it has less network in the country. Considering the client base, the bank is still far behind the local banks.

    Advice to Management

    Hope HBAU can have more branches in their current network to be more competitive to the local players.

    Pros

    The culture is really well especially this is a multi nationalities company. The company is one of the word leading bank.

    Cons

    Systems are significant complicated. There are more than 10 systems being used in the retail banking and wealth management line, which gives you no choices but remember more than 10 username and passwords. Some CSM is not professional. Hardware is outdated.
