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.

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.

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”.

Own time

I was there as a contract staff so the full time staff weren't very stringent with us and we are often left on our own to finish whatever tasks we were assigned.

Productive and fun

Great experience because of good boss and mentor. Colleagues are also fun and nice to get along with. Given a lot of autonomy to work independently. Recommended.


Nice colleagues

Fantastic place to work

HSBC is a good place to work. I had to quit the job due to the implementation of automation in Singapore region. We used to interact with Relation Manager and also with customers. I started my career in HSBC net where I used take care of documents of customer before they were on-boarded.


There were no scope for free launches


Depends on Business requirement
