Good benefits but disorganized leadership

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall very pro work life balance and decent benefits, however leadership is rather dysfunctional and haphazard leading to very disorganized operations.

Values and behaviour scorecard ironically brings out the worse kind of toxic politic culture.

Values and behaviour scorecard ironically brings out the worse kind of toxic politic culture. People are just competing to look like you’re the best but tend to forget the real work and thoughts of others.

Toxic management

I literally wasted almost 6 months of my life. Waited one month for this background check and i only worked here for 5 months. In this 5 months i was already so stressed up. Too much workload. Shortstaffed. The team mates in hsbc are the worst. They are not warmth to the new ones and not helpful at all. If you are not from banking, they look down on you. And if thats the case, why bother hiring right? Honestly it is so micro managed and toxic. And also, if you make any mistakes, they will just embarrass you infront of so many people. Even when you are new to work they will still expect you to know all. Also, hr is not friendly at all. When they wanted to hire, they were super friendly and even told me that i can call them any time when i need help but after joining I am not able to speak to them at all or when i email them, there is no reply.

Think twice

Consider why so many leave a large bank, management un supportive , Pay roll mess up pay very often, and don't tell you they have messed up. They pass the blame of their own mistakes and have this fake image they present about they care for their staff.

effort ≠ commissions

commission is not visible. how well you are paid is not based on revenue points. commissions are paid on peer ranking. very outdated company and slow......commissions are pathetic 😭


chill place


a lot of extra duties not stated in contract

Productive and fun workplace

The job scope is very clearly defined and appropriate guidance was given for me to adequately complete the job. The work culture is quite relaxing and not very intense.

Relaxed friendly no real stress

Nice company to work for, although you are constantly monitored on your daily performance and have weekly meeting to discuss how things are going. Nothing more to add - Nothing more to add - Nothing more to add

Great place to work in terms of work-life balance and family culture.

Enjoy working with the staff in HSBC Bank. They were very helpful and supportive. The environment is a good model for any company to adopt in terms of learning, keep healthy and interaction.

In general unfriendly culture. They tend to work in silos.

Unfortunately, I belonged to a department that did not value too much collaboration between teams. People work in silos. There is no growth unless people resign. You will not get promoted due to a blueprint format of the team. They don't do individual promotions.

Now the management has changed. The process and environment has changed a lot. If the management was how it was previously, most likely most people would love to stay. Other than that, its fine.

Progression is extremely hard for special grade clerk, hiring managers personally do not like to hire internally and would prefer external applicants. Working environment is “okay”.

Productive Environment

Data sheets were always passed around the credit operations before arriving on my desk. Every morning I will receive calls from India teams as well as credit risk teams from around HSBC Singapore offices to test out their data conversion system and provide troubleshoot queries to the IT teams in India.
