Productive

Satisfying but competitive . In HSBC Qatar they need to look more at placing correct people in correct roles. This will make the entire organization more efficient and work atmosphere happier

Colleagues were co-operative and fun to work with. I always had something new to learn

While I was working with HSBC, I had a lot of opportunities to learn and was supported by everyone that I worked with. We also had fun activities every week and used to go on office trips together.

Career Growth, Freedom of ideas, Open culture

I am blessed and grateful for having the opportunity to work almost 9 years of my career with a Internationally reputed bank, HSBC Bank Middle East Ltd. I enjoyed diverse culture at work place and how staff co-operate and support each other. Its a place where you have plenty of opportunities for growth, personally and professionally. Yes, many a times the management is demanding and expects to go extra mile, which is much appreciated too.

Pros

Friendly work atmosphere, diverse culture, career growth, parties and social events, Pride in the Brand

Cons

Long working hours, hectic, poor worklife balance

Fun workplace and friendly colleagues

The colleagues are friendly but the managers are not always supportive and ignore important issues. There is a lot of partiality regarding salary and employment. But other than that the people are friendly and have a lot of fun activities on a regular basis

Good Culture, Bad Management

HSBC is one of the big Multinational Banks in Qatar. Their work culture is much development in comparison than most of other corporate in Qatar which is due to ther experience they get from other HSBC Geo Branches. The problem with HSBC is Qatarization which HSBC forced to Put bad management as Senior Management which didn't make HSBC have significant market sure or any significant present in Qatar

Productive and great experience.

Great opportunity in accordance with my degree. I was trained to work in the position of a full-time employee who had gone on holiday. Importance of ethics and compliance was taught to me.

Downward Spiral

Hsbc is an international bank that is in a downward spiral. Highly process driven bank that is not concerned about business development ideas, rather on compliance and fixing their internal controls. Systems are out dated, a lot of red tape involved, a lot of approvals required to do small tedious tasks.

It was fun to work in HSBC.

I had a team of wonderful, diverse colleagues who were hardworking, cooperative and fun to work with. Esprit De Corps was kind of a motto there. My boss was encouraging and helped me with all the queries and doubts I had regarding my work. It was a wonderful team.

Is a place where you can learn new things almost everyday and WAS a good place to work.

HSBC was a good place to work.But now with staff reduction and multiple projects happening simultaneously the stress level at work has immensely increased with added stretch targets,. People have become so caught up and engrossed with work that there is no more time for fun .Earlier we used to have fun Thursdays and theme days but the environment in the bank has changed which is not motivating to the employees at all.

Pros

cant think of any now..

Cons

Stress, no breaks, working almost every weekend, multiple projects along with daily work to be handled at the same time.
