Credit Control Executive (Former Employee) –  Mapletree Business CityJune 30, 2017
My team members are helpful, even when a mistake is made they will take their time to teach me or correct me. My avp has a very hands off approach he trusts us to make our own judgements. The departments are very inclusive they didnt treat me like a temp worker but one of their own. They constantly look out for opportunities for me.
Pros
Good culture
Cons
The singaporean work culture where you have to work longer to show your hard work.

Good environment, but be careful.
Advance Wealth Manager (RBWM) (Current Employee) –  SingaporeJune 4, 2017
Overall HSBC is a good place to work in. Colleagues are friendly and helpful.No discrimination.

However do be careful of the management. More often than not, they would want to protect their "rice bowl" at your expense. Although the organisation claims to be open, you will sometime find it hard to express or share your views.

Salary wise is acceptable, bonus is acceptable.

If your intention is to do a Sales role in HSBC, I would recommend otherwise. Discretionary bonus for sales role, not ideally the best as you may not get paid for the effort you put in.
Pros
Friendly working environment, good salary scale.
Cons
Discretionary bonus for sales role, not ideally the best.

Premier Relationship Manager (Current Employee) –  Mapletree business cityJanuary 13, 2017
Typical day starts with handling trades and banking requesting of HNW clients. We work towards the goal to deepen relationship with clients and understand their financial needs.

Experience gained:
Relationship management
Performing dealing desk task
Efforts on due diligence and KYC

Co-workers and supervisors are supportive and demonstrate good team spirit. Which is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Challenges comes from clients demand and some inefficiencies of internal process.
