    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Positive strategy and direction, investing for the future and providing decent benefits for staff as well as a positive staff outlook

    Cons

    very large organisation, you need to find your way around and work out all the differenet strands, but this gives you career options

    Advice to Management

    continue with the strategy, the positive share prices and share buy backs show that the business is on a firm footing and people believe in HSBC

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HSBC Holdings (London, England) in August 2008.

    Interview

    The interview began relaxed at the beginning but then the question difficulty stepped up considerably. Questions asked me how I would go about programming different tasks. On the spot it was hard to come up with an answer. Other questions asked were standard, such as Why this company? Why this department etc?
