Hard to maintain work life balance in global team

Working in a global team (e.g. working with HK/China, UK and US staff) makes it challenging to maintain work life balance for HK staff. Salary increase is low and hard to get internal promotion.


Very good coverage of medical benefit; Work from home


Underpaid; Night meetings; Silos

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.

A place that you get to choose to be very stressful or very relaxed

It fits all kinds of people, people of very aggressive or very relaxed, you could find your role. A very flexible company, but at the end, it's all about sales figures.


Job security. Benefits (Annual leaves/Medical Insurance, etc)


Can't think of any at the moment

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.

A good place to learn and explore

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.


The diversity of learning and exploring is high


Less opportunities to get promotion

Some great people, but duplication and inefficiencies due to its size

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

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 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.
