Topics regarding layoffs at HSBC

Sink or swim

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

Anybody else thinks majority of these are long obsolete?

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listing 16 reasons HSBC is the best place to work, and while I can't find the date it was posted, it feels utterly outdated.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

If HSBC can get cheaper peons, they will

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

We need more, not fewer workers

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

Shares soar high

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

Layoffs constantly loom over us

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

Do not stay too long here

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

What's there not to love?

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?

Guided Percentages

Forced distribution (helpfully rebranded "guided percentages") and stack ranking is poisonous and makes it difficult to build talented teams and impossible to keep them together.

Dreadful low morale, period. Significant amount of "peacocking" by most middle/senior managers, period. No recognition or development time for technical professional development, period. Destroys WLB at most opportunities by ignoring when you're... read more
