The work ambiance is engaging with helpful colleagues. However, organisation is a large MNC hence, changes are slow and many work are still manual and communications between departments are fragmented. Staff are willing to go extra mile for customer service and problem solving, however, due to the fragemented culture amongst departments, the process becomes a tedious maze of back and forth communication.
Pros
Staff Health Benefits
Cons
Long hours, fragmented culture with organisation

Low chance of advancement as everything is structured in my department
Same daily routine.

Bureaucratic. Everything is under your line manager's decision.

Everything is specialized so you only do one small part of the chain.

If you wanna a decent job without thinking about advancement or brainstorming in your career, then working here is a safe choice.

Anyway, it may not be correct review for the whole bank but for my department only.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
No advancement in your career

Due to restructuring, many staffs are working long hours to cover for the shortage of staff. The knowledge had been lost when the old staff are being retrenched.
Cons
Working hours are too long

Overall HSBC is a good place to work in. Colleagues are friendly and helpful.No discrimination.

However do be careful of the management. More often than not, they would want to protect their "rice bowl" at your expense. Although the organisation claims to be open, you will sometime find it hard to express or share your views.


Salary wise is acceptable, bonus is acceptable.

If your intention is to do a Sales role in HSBC, I would recommend otherwise. Discretionary bonus for sales role, not ideally the best as you may not get paid for the effort you put in.
Pros
Friendly working environment, good salary scale.
Cons
Discretionary bonus for sales role, not ideally the best.

The workplace is rather individualistic. A typical day at work only have staff gathering for morning coffee and lunch breaks. Otherwise, the office is silent.

Depending on who your line manager is, it can be either a bad or good experience for you.

The work pressure can sometimes be overwhelming, which is not surprising for a bank.


Being a foreign bank has a good and bad side: the good part is that most of the time the local process and decisions will be influenced by the global management. The bad side is - most of the time the local process and decisions will be influenced by the global management.
Pros
high salary base (compared to other industries), a lot of annual leaves
Cons
Too many bosses, org structure is flatter than other companies which hinders employees from progressing up
