paid time off, paid national holidays, 1/2 paid healthcare by employer

It is a stable corporation meaning you will be paid bi-weekly but overall for my position as a teller we're underpaid, and the lower-tier employees are treated unfairly and exploited by managers, I was in a part-time position and was constantly asked to cover for the full-time employees or go to other branches but management kept me at under 40 hours so the company wouldn't need to pay for overtime.

Great company to work for and they care about their employees.

HSBC takes the time to get to know their employees and makes sure that you are where you need to be in your career at the bank. The pay is wonderful and the work life balance they provide is very helpful especially if you have children.

Pros

Great perks

Cons

No cons

easy job good management

Work itself was easy, much of what you would expect from a teller position. systems were a bit buggy at times and branches were often understaffed.

Share your experience to help others

Decent overall culture

Overall the company is ok. It greatly depends on the department in which you work in. Several of my colleagues in other departments experienced upward movement and opportunities, but unfortunately I could not say the same for the collections department.

good culture, good people and good work life balance

good work-life balance and a more friendly culture compared to other banks. Compensation seems to be lower than the market and progression is rather slow.

Pros

people, work life balance, benefits

Cons

compensation, slow progression

good if you know banking

job security is not really there...its every changing in the bank especially in the US. id you are full time (not PT or Contract as far as i am aware) the pto is quite nice. ok pay but not really enough for what most deal with. from a (former) employee standpoint the salaried manager work way too much and the company expects them to be on call 24/7

Pros

work from home, above average benefits

Cons

pay to workload

this company is downsizing in U.S market, its future is not promising.

Not a great place to work

The pay used to be why most people in banking wanted to work there but that has changed a few ago. Their technology is very very old, it’s hard to help client because calling any department is equal to hours on hold and you still won’t get the help needed. Not a good bank to work or open an account.

Pros

None

Cons

No work life balance, low pay for internal promotion

Great manager and staff but pay was bad. Not much room for advancement and senior leaders did not care you were underpaid on market value. Started layoffs and eventually closed the location.

Pros

Team of month lunch

Cons

pay, timeoff, flexibility

Los Supervisores no te apoyan

Hay jóvenes que tienen mala educación y de hecho te molestan y los supervisores jóvenes como ellos se dan cuenta pero no les importa y no les ponen un alto, al contrario . Los fomentan a seguir faltando al respeto.

No one steering the ship

promotion non-existence in the US performance not aligned with pay focus too much on what direction instead of how to get there Methodology of ways of working clashes with old ways of thinking muddling in a quagmire of too many processes to effectively accomplish anything efficiently.Pay and compensation do not align with one's skills, proficiency, or acuity for what they were hired for.Promotion of ill-qualified personsConstant reorganization leading disorganization.Leadership listens but does not hearPros. Plenty of soft skill and technical training options.Culturally diverse

Lack of Trust in Sr Manager and Above

Workers and direct managers work well together but there is a distinct lack of trust in higher management. new directions every 2-3 years makes it difficult to know where to focus.
