    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good name for your CV. Most people are nice.

    Cons

    Managers abuse their power. If you are a junior in the team, work gets shifted to you so everyone but you can go home by 5:30. Not much if any teamwork. Senior Management and HR don't do anything when you report issues. If you are a contractor, you are treated like one.

    Advice to Management

    Treat contractors like full-time employees. Do something when issues arise. If managers are abusing their power, don't let it slide!
