The job was ever changing every day, as management could never decide on a conclusive structure or how to expedite client needs. The pay was very good, but not worth the enormous stress it would sometimes bring - and it would come out of nowhere.
Compensation, location, hours
Management, an ever changing structure of everything (I mean everything)
Plenty of job courses are offered and I’d suggest you take them in order to advance your career outside of the organization. Staff reductions are a common occurrence at the bank and there is no job security. Coworkers are great and management is good too, depending on who you report to. Work life balance is pretty good and there is a big push for inclusion at this time.
Open work space
Due to restructuring job security is out the door. Back office and middle office Operations are going offshore. Management is not properly educated to deal with employee questions related to their current or future positions.
No job security
Not a great place to work. There is no job security, as of late. Senior Management is messed up. Terrible leaders. Internal job postings are a joke. They are already pre-filled behind the scenes.
Untrustworthy. Poor senior management.
I have been with the bank for over 13 years. About 5 years ago the atmosphere of the bank is a constant fear of being laid off. Bonus's and Raises were rare for IT. The benefits package changed with no good future benefits other than the 401k.
401k Matching, Ok Heath Benefits (worse than what they were)
Hardly any OT, Fear of being Laid Off
HSBC places a strong emphasis on regimented corporate practices and this is reflected in the company's culture. A good place to work if you are not looking for advancement opportunities or creativity, but prefer to fill a more focused, narrow corporate function. There are some great folks working here, but many must deal day-to-day with the possibility of arbitrary termination or layoff.
HSBC is an overall amazing company that provides you with tools to progress you career but they are people here that will sabotage you. In this department, there are 2 managers and 2 team leads that will do anything to destroy you if you don’t kiss their butts. It’s sad but it happens in many if not all companies. Just watch your back and be careful what you say.
Have learned a lot in many different fields. Benefits are good. Hardest part is the fast paced change occuring. Much of the older valued knowledge has left the bank. They are restructuring. Our Offshore team has taken over much of our work.
Much old valued knowledge has left the bank
I enjoyed learning the KYC process but the management was only concerned with production numbers. Employees' opinions did not count when developing new processes or goals.
Salary and time off were good; benefits were decent.
Production numbers were not indicative of how well the work was done, Under-performing individuals were protected by management, Senior management was dismissive and disrespectful of employees.
