Hard work is often rewarded

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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!

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.

professional working environment

The contract staff is not with a good benefit and long working hour, fast paced working environment, politics and not open-minded enough, but the staff there are with professional mind-set.

Redundant and overlapped positions/departments

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.

Nice to set up a good career

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.

Friendly Environment Overall

Both environment and compensation are reasonable. In terms of culture, it is conservative. Different departments are of their own directions rather than a collaborative effort and that's probably the difficult part of the job.

Pros

Good experience but be aware with the poor top level management

good place to work for, explores to lots of different investment areas and great support from the team, however, the top management level is not really to give you lots of support and the continuous changing of policy, guideline and etc. bring lots of trouble to your day to day operation. lots of high level politics, be aware and be careful working here

stressful working environment

1.Customers are keep calling in and it is hard to have time to rest. 2.Branch staff give wrong information to customer. After that customers would call us and complain about that. 3.The most enjoyable part of the job is that I was surrounded by a bunch of nice colleagues and they were always here whenever I need them.

Pros

food from cafeteria is cheap

Cons

short break

Good exposure

Eye opening on how a Global Bank's Regional Head Quarter for Asia Pacific operates. Pick up more soft skills and learning how to work in a very big family on small, big, sensitive cases. I love HSBC cultures - Open, Dependable, Connectedness. It will be awesome if I could get a job with HSBC at San Francisco or firms which share similar culture.

Global presence

HSBC has a wide network of branches around the globe. Its network provides distinctive convenience to the global customer, who is required to travel different places. Especially, on the fund transfer, it waives the commission fee. And it provides the staff more opportunities to meet with colleague from different cultures.

Pros

meet with people from different cultures

Cons

Low pay

Friendly Workspace

All colleagues are very nice in this company. I worked here for 6 years around and made a lot of friends here. I started my Settlement operation jobs here and I learned everything started from here. Colleagues are willing to offer help and teach when I was a new joiner. After some years when I became a Senior Staff I became the mentor for new joiners and guide them to do the work in the department. Very good culture and nice people.

Pros

Good Co. culture, Friendly

Cons

Salary
