    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Diverse, hard-working and intelligent colleagues. Exposure to international perspectives. Often collaborating on cross-border projects. Good supportive culture.

    Cons

    Some systems, particularly in data analytics, are not up-to-date. Communication and approvals can be slow to come due to scale and bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Training should be more tailored to individual needs. Input from external training providers and industry experts is also important for staff to get a broader industry perspective.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    No option to give 0 or negative stars otherwise would have given negative stars.If you are in IT department of HSBC Australia no pros whatsoever, please do not join this department in HSBC Australia unless you don't have any other option

    Cons

    IT management of HSBC Australia treat software engineers or developers as slaves . Too much micromanagement When recruiting they will say work from home and flexibility stuff but after you join will send emails stating everyone needs to be in ofc by 9 and can leave only after 5 , then will say you cant work from home. Full of helicopter managers who will hover over your head all the time to see when you are taking...
