    HSBC Employee Would Like To Congratulate Management For “Coming Up With A New Way To Screw Employees”

    In 10,000 words: A bank that really takes pleasure in proudly advertising any award it gets, howsoever ludicrous the honour, is HSBC. One honour it’d loath to advertise, but unarguably deserves the most is the bank that most royally screws its employees. It is no secret that HSBC’s senior management gets paid ridiculous amount of […]

    Laid Off British Banker Finds Meaning In Topless Modeling, Bodybuilding

    Henrietta Leung slaved away for nine years at HSBC, taking home 120,000 pounds annually for 16-hour work days. Then she did the same for Credit Suisse.

    So much so, that it’s selling its headquarters and just about every piece of real-estate it owns. First to go was its New York headquarters on Fifth Avenue, sold last month to an Israeli. Now, HSBC is parting ways (again) with its London headquarters in Canary Wharf, agreeing to sell to South Korea’s National Pension […]

    Bad Day For British Banks

    The City is not a happy place today: The U.K.’s two biggest banks both reported lower earnings thanks to the credit crisis, while Lloyds Banking Group announced a new round of job cuts.

    Layoffs Watch ’08: HSBC, Countrywide

    HSBC supposedly just laid off its entire New York correlation desk.

They’re probably unemployed. In related news, Bank of […]
