    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is great. You can take leaves as long as it's within the policy. If it is, it's almost a no questions asked approved leave. Most managers discourage overtime. If there are multiple hours of overtime rendered, management takes notice and works on it. Phones are allowed on the floor which is something different from other service centers. Sleeping quarters, gym, play area, karaoke rooms, and pantries are...

    Cons

    The salary might not be competitive anymore. I have heard some of my colleagues leaving the company for a better pay outside. The company needs to review it's compensation package. It might be great for people coming from outside. But if you are growing within the company, the increase is okay - but not competitive.

      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at HSBC Holdings for more than a year

      Pros

      Many good and interesting people to work with. Lots of opportunities as there's an overhaul of having too many systems to manage...Evergreen in affect.

      Cons

      British hierarchy management issues in some cases, much politics, and the near shoring of IT dismantled good teams. Parent company regulatory fines negatively impacted people management, typical path of cheaper labor resource planning.

      Advice to Management

      Cheap labor adds to your glut more than you know.
