Flexi work arrangement, nice people in general

Decent medical benefits Flexible work arrangement including wfh and hoursPeople are nice however culture is silo due to org size and structure Poor pay increment and bonus in recent years Lots of feedback survey however action seems slow and not transparent


Flexible working hours, medical benefits, work from home


Siloed culture, complicated work process, administrative work

Lots of office politics

Don’t bury your career in this company. Lots of office politics. No way for progression. You will be paid below market after few years. Salary adjustment is minimal.

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!

Multicultural workplace

It is a good place for collaborating with different people from different countries and it can lead you to learn more about how to accomplish your work from them.

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.

Well structured organisation

Happy to work in HSBC. This company provided me with great opportunities of learning from and meeting with different people. The organisation is managed by a great management team and leaders. Very Good!!


Well structured


Lower salary pay scheme and no benefits for contingent staff

Reputed Brand and Professional Work Culture.

Reputed Brand and Professional Work Culture. Organization offers excellent opportunity for professional growth and global movement as part of carer growth.


Brand, Work Culture, Work Life Balance


May be less technical exposure due to regulatory nature of the Financial industry.

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

Good Company, bad local management

Work Culture: Not good, many unnecessary OT Benefit: Great Salary: Fair Skills: Not board enough Management: Funny

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.
