    I have been working at HSBC Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic pension, good annual bonus. The bank pays 10% of your first 20k salary and 9% on anything above that into your pension pot without you having to make any contribution , plus they then match your own contribution up to 7% meaning they contribute up to 17% of your Base pay to your pension while you only sacrifice 7%!

    Cons

    Low basic salary but not the worst

    Advice to Management

    Base pay not great
