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 favorites instead of those that are deserving way too many times.
We put in massive hours on weekly basis and for what? All we received in return is low pay, more added workloads and not even a thank you. We are invisible to those in senior management because all they care about is milking us for more than we should be able to handle and all in the name of profit.
Get out while the gettin's good and find something better, because believe me - there is something better.
