HSBC is an employee centric organization with good top and middle management. Company has strong employee training and shows a clear growth path to those who perform. With lot of internal options for the employees to grow.
I was part of the GBM department in India and had fun working there. Most of my colleagues were with HSBC for more than a decade and had a decent journey in the bank in different departments and level of responsibility.
I had a good time working for HSBC. I got a good project exposure. Overall the environment is relaxed, but there is lack of planning on the projects. Work profile is not properly set and unnecessary ad-hoc tasks are assigned at the last moment.
