HSBC is a good place to learn and explore for newbies who are interested in banking roles given that the network of the Company provides a wide variety of choices to step in the industry and accumulate relevant work experience and personal network.
Working experience in HSBC is memorable. People are smart, quick thinker and efficient. HSBC values work-life-balance a lot and provides sufficient equipment to achieve flexi-working or work from home.
Long days, often calls from 3.30-8pm with UK
Some great people,
Duplication and inefficiencies due to its size
Very conduct focused
Hardest: duplication due to size, and calls skewed towards the HK evening
Most enjoyable: the people
Systematic with well developed policy on compliance. I have managed a team of 90 odds subordinates with diversities. Inclusion is promoted within the company and mentorship program for newly joined executives.
HSBC has a wealth of talent in their offices that are sometimes not explored by the projects that they are working on. Many of the individuals working there have moved on to bigger and better opportunities or are very capable at their work.
With around 3,800 offices worldwide, HSBC connects customers to opportunities, enabling businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, and ultimately helping people to fulfil their hopes and realise their ambitions.
Excellent values and great leadership team. Lots of opportunities for learning and growing in addition to healthiest human system. Global network supporting customers with cross border support and collaboration between different businesses
A well established worldwide international financial institution. All aspect of this company are well developed, with brilliant management and systematic in all aspect. An excellent employer and worth to develop your career for life.
It is a bank with many political issues, not care about the career development and the talent of the employee. Many redundant and overlapped positions/departments which make work inefficient. The bank has a solid foundation but the management and culture are not good as expected.
A typical day at work is relaxed but could get tough at times.
Learning is a daily thing.
Work culture is one of the best. You are allowed to fail but learn as well.
Hardest part of the job was to get used to the slow pace.
