It was interesting.I didn't feel that I was without any references to guide me if I was stuck on something.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was in a team environment and there was much to refer to if I needed assistance to talk about a product.Such as the intranet and internet.To gain more insight about how it can be viewed internally and externally.

Pros

Training and lots of skills to gain.

Cons

SHARING IDEAS TO MAKE WORK FLOW MORE open to other forms of information sharing, such as; regular updates and input in meetings.

Not a good place to work

Very bad interview process. The only good thing is the proximity. No job security. No proper training. Not enough staff to take calls, always 45 minutes to customers reach us,

Typical Day at Work

In a typical day in my position I fulfilled management tasks of managing the funding requirements of our settlement agents , Reconcile all the accounts related to Mortgage , as well as overseeing a offshore staff of individuals. Throughout the day I completed various administrative duties as well, including answering phones and emails. I also provided strong customer service and resolved customer issues.

High profile brand.. that's it.....

Good brand but pay is minimal and you need to keep looking over your shoulder. Many head count freeze and job cuts. You are really only banking on the famous name.Everyone wants to work for HSBC so they can afford to pay below market. The last CEO lasted 15months and took 30 years to work his way up. Otherwords they don't care if you lose your job. They will fire you simply if don't like you. Lots hidden agendas. Only find out last minute. Too conservative ccompany

Solid Bank

Quite a nice place to work most of the time however IT choked with red tape and systems poorly integrated. The constant pressure to reduce costs can lead to a hostile environment.

Great brand, good business and customer focus. hard to get things done

If you can get your head around HSBC being a machine, and to remember that even the best and kindest people are trying to navigate around the machine, then you can take the slow steps to get things done.

Good for job security

There are many opportunities for training and development. Work/Life balance needs to be improved. Overall a good starting place and good company to be part of.

Great Work Life Balance

This is a great organization to work for. Peers, management, and executives are friendly and engaging. I was sad to leave this organization when I moved back to Canada.

Great team to work with.

Covering all aspects of property management and looking after a large portfolio of properties was great experience. The workplace culture is one of fairness, treat others with respect and this will be given to you in return.

Pros

Flexible Hours

Cons

Too many meetings

Overall good place to work but lacks the excitement of an dynamic/fast paced company

Good place to work and they try to treat their staff well and not just like robots. If you have a family you will like the work life balance and flexibility. If you are young and looking for something more dynamic, exciting and a more risk-taking environment then it may be a bit boring.

Pros

Work-Life Balance, Flexibility, Trust

Cons

Conservative, Not much youth culture

Great work place with limited career advancement management opportunity at senior management level

I rank HSBC is one of the best place to work for though HSBC does not offer competitive benefits. One of the benefits of working with HSBC is the company offers job opportunity across geographies

Pros

Overseas posting opportunity

Cons

work life not balanced

Stresful

Expected to work long hours under a stressful enviroment. All though bonuses were very good each year if you performed as expected. Constant changes and employees. Enjoyed working in the HR department as work could be varied from time to time.

Pros

Good bonus

Cons

Long hours

An Essential Role

- increasing the wealth of customers with your banking services is always rewarding - dealing with complaints and concluding with resolutions is very satisfying - working with junior staff members and seeing them move on in their careers is encouraging - fraud and money laundering can be very upsetting

Pros

Every day is never the same

Cons

Frauds can be very upsetting

HSBC experience was incredible, lovely environment with nice colleagues from different nationalities.

I worked one year with HSBC the biggest bank in the world . it added an amazing experience to my career path and learnt a lot from them. as much as they teach me i was a good asset for them as well reaching sales target and received an appreciation email from the CEO himself for my excellent service.
