    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HSBC Holdings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    9-5 job. Nice office. Shared assistant. If you want a decent job without too much pressure, this is not bad. Pension and benefits are very good.

    Cons

    HSBC wants you to do everything "their" way even if it makes no logical sense. They don't allow flexibility when it comes to an individual's preferred style. There's also a kind of pressure to sell things that are not necessarily useful to the clients (or the company), which goes against building long term proper relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more flexible.
