Good luck with your efforts in communist china…..and good riddance to your presence in the US!
It's good to see them called out for their c-ap... Of course, many of their announced bonuses may prove theoretical, because HSBC still has 24,000 layoffs to implement, and if that call comes before the check, well, the check’s not going to... — read more
Why is there so little talk about it? Should I be worried or not?
What are the reasons for the closure of HSBC branches? Is it due to non-profitability? Do the employees get transfers or do they get displaced?
We Just Inherited your "Cybersecurity CTO" over at Wells. What's the story?
If HSBC doesn't want to support the Chrome browser, they should check the browser in use and tell the user they don't like Chrome- not just hang there in some stupid loop.
35000 layoffs is now not enough. And US retail is specifically called out as a market we will exit. I’m such a fool for joining this company last year... — read more
Aside from the cuts that are happening I am hearing that there will be a large layoff action in September - we'll see what happens but I am not surprised.
HSBC USA introduced withdrawal limits. Beginning of a bank run?
Given HSBC’s history of bad bets, the fact that they’re going to up the investments on the west coast speaks to an overvalued market. This is The kiss of death. Be prepared for dot.com bubble 2.0 to implode soon... — read more
Does anyone know who HSBC may be utilizing as an outplacement firm to help those affected by the layoffs transition to new opportunities?
Here is what I've got so far... The Guardian HSBC to cut 35,000 jobs worldwide as profits... — read more
Y’all ready? Lots of announcements. All bad Layoff announcements coming.
What is your opinion about the likelihood of layoffs at HSBC sometimes in 2020? What groups may be affected? Anyone has an idea?
Honestly, I'm yet to work at a place with this high level of incompetence and lack of professionalism. And don't get me started on our strategy. Do we even have one? Does anybody here on any management level know how to do their job? At this... — read more
That seems to be the main principle for treatment of employees at this company. Given that we’re all aware of the company’s constant pursuit for cheap labor, we shouldn't be surprised that the layoffs are happening, and that they’re not going to... — read more
Things have gone from bad to worse here really quickly. Now it's no longer just the low pay that's below industry standards and lousy managers who have no idea how to do their jobs that make our lives difficult. No, now we also have to worry... — read more
Really???? I get taking a contrarian stance but this is like sears doubling down on the catalogue to fight off e-commerce. What an incredible waste of money and resources.
Have heard rumours that there are further layoffs planned for this week or next week e.g. HR having internal meeting rooms booked out in London etc. Anyone heard anything further or have any concrete info.?
What's Project Oak?
Where can I find more info?
The cuts are coming mid-June and nobody at HSBC should be surprised. Bloomberg covered this with quite a bit detail, the impact will be mostly on GBM. Guyett is big on cost cutting and that's kind of what he does the best, so more to come here. Do... — read more
HSBC Layoffs 2019 What's your prediction as it relates to the possibility of HSBC Layoffs in 2019?
This is not a bad company to work for, but neither is it one of the best. HSBC does provide adequate training in all aspects of the industry - just not for the position you are hired for. You are pretty much left on your own to be self taught or hope... — read more
HSBC can be a great beginning to kickstart your career but give it a year or two at the most - and move on! This company has proven time and again that career development and growth do not exist here. I have witnessed management give promotions to... — read more
More mortgage industry layoffs, things are accelerating and it's not looking good for 2018.... See below: A review of state employment data indicates that several real estate finance firms have recently made, or are planning to conduct, rounds of... — read more
I ran into this article listing 16 reasons HSBC is the best place to work, and while I can't find the date it was posted, it feels utterly outdated. Most of them used to be true once upon a time, but lately, majority are a thing of the past... — read more
There's nothing we can do to change this. There will always be people in other countries who are willing to work for much less, and HSBC will turn to them when they want to cut costs. No matter how bad they can be and how good we are - it's not... — read more
I don’t understand why HSBC keeps laying off people, when we have more work than we can handle as it is. There is absolutely no life/work balance, we are expected to work unreasonably long hours to make sure everything gets done. And as people get... — read more
The share prices of HSBC have never been this high, thanks to Hong Kong traders. Not sure how this will translate to future layoffs (it can cut both ways,) but it certainly bodes well for the company itself... — read more
I am really sorry for the folks in Brandon who are losing their jobs, but this is nothing new at HSBC. They only make the news when they do a clustered round of layoffs, but they have been letting go of people constantly in the past few years. They... — read more
This is on the mortgage side. More layoffs to come. Also, as things are moving on the net, more people do internet banking and less offices and branches are needed. This will result in many branches to be closed, it'll be a bloodbath in years to... — read more
WARN filed, 197 cut.
HSBC is a great place to spend a few years at but it's hard to work there - the deadlines can be really tough on the IT side and there are many egos and people who are really full of sh-- - they will work you a lot and you will be stressed out but... — read more
Yearly layoffs, and always handled very poorly. Super slow moving, red tape everywhere, wait, wait, wait, layoff... Finally, no any room for advancement in middle level unless you are already a senior manager. What's there not to love?
