Hard work is often rewarded

Hard work is often rewarded. You will work extremely hard and feel under lots of pressure most of the time.On the other hand, salary is great. training is great. If your lucky, very lucky you will have a good team leader- manager.Travel is often required and can be either great or ..Its a very good place to meet people from anywhere/everywhere.Overall a great place to work if you have a good management team with you!

Productive and mulit-cultural working environment

Great to work with the people around the world. People are smart and aggressive which will help you to be matured. Benefit is perfect, but the salary is average.

Place to work if you know how to handle pressure and politics

Good team members. Management is not clear and always try to blame for misses/mistakes instead of improving from the mistakes. Salary growth is not huge.

Productive and fun workplace

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.

Good for Interns. Slow Paced and Bureaucratic

Continuous change in Line Management is a deterrent to Performance evaluation and finally to bonus/pay scale.

Good place to work, but not much opportunity

The culture and the people are good, while there is not much opportunity to grow because of bureaucracy. A lot of work had been deployed outside Hong Kong, the back-office teams are shrinking.
