Talk about salary.. scary..

Fresh graduate 2.5k then after 3 month probation, they give u extra 1k. So total income nearly 4k

my friend is rm2.6k fresh grad.

yeah stress and colleagues are not helpful, that's what my friend told me too.

after probation, still a contractor.
After 1 and a half year or 2 years, only can promote to permanent.

and she wanted to quit the job.

I was a with a vendor worked with IT people in HSBC SST (Self Service Terminal) department of HSBC Hong Kong itself, their IT department is at Olympic station, moving to TKO later, I asked them about Malaysia HSBC's IT department in Malaysia, they commented the Malaysia IT dept sucks, they can't seem to solve problem and something, they have to send staff from Hong Kong/other countries to assist them. Well, this is what I heard, not sure true r not. Most of the products and systems are acquired from vendors, so...well...

Anyone from HDPM here? I just read this thread...noticed a few misconceptions...let me clear a few things up....their salary is NOT the same as HSBC.

Both HDPM and HSBC are different but under same parent company...HDPM salary is LOWER than HSBC on average...becos it is NOT a bank. HSBC is a bank...

And I am an ex HDPM.

overall working env is good i would say, but this varies depending on which team u're in. but most of the colleague here are helpful enough.

not sure what do you mean by contractual bonus? we do have performance bonus every year and adjustment/increment in april. the amount is based on your performance rating. ( higher rating will give u higher bonus and increment).

bank staff loan rate is not applicable to us, but will have corporate loan rate which will be lower than normal loan rate but not the staff rate in HSBC bank. (but the rate has yet to be confirmed ).

and someone mentioned about HQ in india is not exactly true. we do have HR and admin in malaysia, but if your team is new in malaysia and there are chances that your manager/boss are working in GLT india so thats why there are some people interviewed by indian colleagues.

platform/language that are widely used in GLTm are AS400/iSeries, COBOL/zSeries, J2EE etc...

hope the info helps smile.gif

i think there are no special privilege for first class student as they have standard package for new joiner, also the technical skill required in the organization is not taught in school... unless you have the specialized skill in the related field then thats another story.

Hi Fallen,
Thanks for the thorough info..
Im on the finalizing stage into HSBC GLT.

Anyway, just for ur info, contractual means a fixed bonus to be paid to employee every financial year.

what about the flexibility? by flexibility i mean:

-punctuality (time in, lunch time punctuality)
-is there any overtime?
-open discussion
-trainings (because from where i work now, no training is provided and "straightaway run once u reach the land" if u know what i mean tongue.gif

the most important thing for me in finding a job is the flexibility

anyway, u r from which team ya?

hi potside sorry for the slow reply.

i'm not very sure on the term 'contractual' means here.. are you on a contract basis or permanent employee? because what i know about the bonus is it paid based on your performance rating every year. ( higher rating will entitle higher bonus) so it varies.

about the flexibility i will say its quite flexible, lunch time is 1 hour and the time slot is 12-2pm, just go anytime you want. No problem if you spend more than 1 hour for lunch as most of us spend more than that hehe..

for some team they have flexi hour whereby you are allowed to come in as early as 7.30am and go home at 4.30 pm or as late as 10.30am and go home at 7.30pm. just come in anytime within that range and work for 8 hours and you're good to go.

open discussion and training varies depending on your seniority and boss lol... of course if u're more senior pos they will expect you to start work sooner. i'll be able to give you more info on this if you may let me know which team you are joining.

btw i'm from the APAC team. (Asia Pacific)

hi fallen,
thanks for the explanation..
well i will tell u again about the contractual bonus..its a fixed bonus, every single year u will get a bonus, which confirmed u will get a bonus regardless of ur performance..
its not about ur in a contract or permanent terms.

well i have been offered as a peoplesoft tester since that is my specialty, and they are actually not offering the amount that i expect but they compensate with a joining bonus.

from my current company, compared to hsbc, i will lose my flexibility a lot.

flexibility wise
no contractual bonus for hsbc
less dental/optical for hsbc
working from home
hi speed internet
and so forth

anyway do u have any idea about the peoplesoft team?

thanks!

currently there are quite a number of openings you guys can search for, most of them are listed in jobstreet. If further information is needed, kjindly drop me a pm or post it here, i'll try my best to find out for you guys.

I have junior who works at HSDM. According to him the standard salary package for all freshies in HSDM : RM2400 - RM2500

Pro: Good place for freshies/fresh college graduates to get a relatively good starting salary.
Con: A newly setup company with people from diversified backgrounds and all with different personal agenda - a lot of office politics going on.

Basically HSDM is the cheap labour software delivery IT subsidiary for HSBC group. It is not a BANK entity, hence no benefits which enjoyed by bank staff.

Highlight: Department wise, it's good to join GBM. Do not join Europe and GMO which report to India.

This is possible.

The GLTm HR has advertised a lot of recruitment ads in newspapers and various job portals but until now seems not many hiring has been done.

GLTm's head count has been dropped from 400 ++ (mid 2011) to 380++ headcount as of now although hiring process has been carried out proactively.

Hence, the UK onshore clients might have decided to adopt better remuneration package in order to attract Malaysian local IT talents to join HSBC global IT work force.

However, I doubt that the better remuneration package offered by them will make any significant difference.

The HR manager from India purposely delays all the recruitment cases which involved locals so that he can claims to the management from UK that Malaysia market does not have sufficient competent IT talent pool to fulfill HSBC's demand.

By creating this impression, India (GLTi - HSBC Global Technology India) will be able to maintain its position as HSBC leading global IT hub and transfer most of the offshore software development and delivery projects back to India.

HSBC GLTm will be operating in Malaysia until 2015, but if it continues to be deemed as incompetent, it will be shut down and GLTi will enjoy the reputation as the only reliable IT internal outsourcing arm to HSBC group and thus increase its bargaining power to demand for better remuneration/compensation for higher managers in India.

i got an offer from DHL rclxm9.gif , if the saying that they are closing down in 2015 is true, why they appear so desperate in need of programmers?

I went there for second interview (with HR) last two weeks and asked them about the part of GLTm shutting down.

They were very angry at me for asking such question. One of the HR staff's face look like this mad.gif during the interview.

I've worked here for sometime and i did manage to chow from GLTm. The people there is okay but the managers there sucks. Most of them are imported from India. They do not know the working culture of Malaysian that have a lot of holidays. Futhermore they have been con by Vikram. Sayung that Living cost in Malaysia are cheap. Hahaha. They are all been ripped off by him. Pitty them. There's one local manager named Foo. From what I heard he is the most unreliable of them all. Keep licking the upper mngmnt boot. Most of his staff dont like him.
And if u are askes to work On weekends u only got paid rm16 for the whole day. Aiyaaa. Makan naan with tandoori one time finish a day pay.
Not worth your effort and time to work here as the ppl from GLTi that work with u always think that all the GLTm staff dont know how to do work and always on holiday.

Hahahaha. Good luck for those who are joining GLTm.

Hey guys, im in a dilemma now.

I'm currently a java developer in a big MNC in cyberjaya, been here for 1.5 years. My total work experience almost 5 years. Salary wise, I am a little underpaid.

Anyway got a call from this HSBC GLTm at masjid jamek 2 weeks ago for interview. Didn't know much about GLTm and thinking of nothing to lose, just went for the interview and asked for a 20% salary increase. Got called back for 2nd (HR) interview also.

Yesterday, received an email from the HR guy offering me (suprisingly!) what I asked for. Senior Software Engineer with a 20% salary jump.

Now reading through this thread and others, alot of negative comments about GLTm lol. I would be giving up my flexibility and comfort to get a higher salary and a senior position and a gamble to work in GLTm. Have to give them an answer in a couple of days, not sure what to do sad.gif Appreciate some advice please..

Most banks or financial institute expects you to work OT especially its internal departments with minimum off day. This is to be expected.

A longtime former colleague of mine told me his cousin who worked endured lots of stress not to mention strict protocols and regulations. Again, all I can say this is to be expected from such organization.

I just got a call from HR asking me to go interview for the position of Senior Java Developer. Wondering should i go for it, since i just wanna test market. Maybe the pay is good, but pointless if i lose the flexibility of my current company and the benefits.

After i read all of the comments here, wondering if it's worth it. I would appreciate all advices given.

HSBC GLTM Is a great place to work at, the people are friendly and helpful. there is alot of emphasis given on training and the seniors are very willing to help. HSBC has a lot of events and entertainment for their staff, every month they would have social drinks for all staff for free. Free food and drinks. Staff would be given the chance to travel overseas for training. Some go to HK, China and US. Its expending and in need of talented programmers to be developed as team leaders in the future. They are replacing foreign staff now with more local. There are numerous benefit working with HSBC. You  get to use its state of the art gym, there is a well equip games room, staff are encouraged to participate in sport like badminton,football, treasure hunt and trips. Performing staff are well rewarded with trophies, awards, bonuses, gifts and a lot more. Each dept has their own entertainment allowance and the benefit is very good. Work is challenging but would help you in the long run. Training is a main plus point. Every month  there are training. you get to work with all people around the world and is open to work at other HSBC later on. Great working environment.

Just ignore the negative comments, as there are some ppl who are asked to leave by the company or is just plain hateful. Scared that there are ppl who would be better then them and steal their rice bowl.

Not all are from China, HSBC GLTM is a diverse and multicultural organization.

YOU SAY: HSBC GLTM Is a great place to work at, the people are friendly and helpful.

I SAY:
HSBC GLTM is a great place to work IF you work at  GBM (Global Banking and Market) department.

HSBC GLTM is a great place to work IF you are a FRESH GRADUATE as starting salary is RM2800.

HSBC GLTM is a great place to work IF your direct manager and project manager are not from GLTi (HSBC Global Technology India).

HSBC GLTM is not a great place to work for senior level engineers as annual salary increment rate is only ranging from 5% to 7%; no promotion opportunity at all as colleagues from GLTi will jump down as your line manager via parachutes; a lot of office politics between Project Managers and Team Leads which tend to make senior engineers as scapegoats; a lot of peers who share the same senior engineer title are incompetent as fresh graduates as GLTM make massive hirings from those who merely have a number of years working experience and do not possess required technical competency. You need to clean their shits if you are the only capable and responsible person in the team.

YOU SAY: HSBC has a lot of events and entertainment for their staff, every month they would have social drinks for all staff for free. Free food and drinks.
I SAY: The once-a-month free Friday Drink events are organized and funded by the Bank. GLTm staffs got the opportunity to attend this free food , free drink event simply because our office is located just opposite the Bank's head office.

YOU SAY: Performing staff are well rewarded with trophies, awards, bonuses, gifts and a lot more
I SAY: FALSE for those who are not from GBM department. DAY DREAM for those who report to GLTi managers.

The most disappointing fact in GLTm is hardworking and lazy staffs received the same treatment, same year-end performance appraisal rating, same remuneration, same percentage of salary increment and same percentage of performance bonus.

YOU SAY: Each dept has their own entertainment allowance and the benefit is very good.
I SAY: The budget for each department were used by Department head, BU head and local managers to organize team building activities which would only help them to achieve their own KPIs as responding to Global People Survey's outcome. But due to the team building activities were merely proposed for the sake of achieving managers' KPIs, these activities have huge gap with grassroots' actual expectations. Sometimes, managers even force the team members who have other commitments to attend these team building/entertainment activities so that they could showcase to the BU and department higher management that they have addressed the needs of the staffs -- therefore defeat the purpose of department welfare budget.

YOU SAY: Training is a main plus point. Every month  there are training.
I SAY: Your internal HSBC customers who sponsor your IT project will reject your training request as you are currently tied up with project tasks.

YOU SAY: Staff would be given the chance to travel overseas for training. Some go to HK, China and US.
I SAY: The opportunity for oversea assignment almost equal to ZERO for those with less than 1 year employment history, and with line managers from India as most of the travel opportunities will be given to managers in India.

However, I will still be joining GLTm if I am a fresh graduate.

If I want to look for high salary position although I only possess low competency, I will join GLTm as the technical interview is merely verbal interview which you have high chance of not being exposed your technical incompetency.

A lot of Maybank and CIMB IT employees are looking forward to join GLTM as they could simply request for 5k to 8k monthly salary and the chances of getting hired is very high if they manage to get passed the first-round verbally conducted technical interview. As the GLT HR receives huge pressure from the UK higher management to recruit local talents rather than importing India GLT staffs to fill up the vacancies, the candidate selection and recruitment process have been done in hectic manner without proper technical competency screening. And in order to meet the headcount target in short span of time, the HR recently has tend to accept these so-called local talents' salary request although the requested figure is much more higher than Malaysian average market standard. So no surprise GLTm has a lot of high salary and low competency engineers and senior engineers.

If the HSBC GLT management and HR are really serious in ensuring they are recruiting the best IT talents in Malaysia and place the capable person in the right place, I would like to suggest to the top management to implement the following measures to all job interview candidates or new recruits-

1. The current verbally conducted technical interview should be complemented with a technical competency assessment.
- the interview candidate must be physically present in GLT office for taking the assessment rather than completing the test via Internet at home as the candidate can get others' assistance during the remotely conducted competency assessment.

2. The technical assessment should be conducted in the form of paperless method as a lot of previous candidates might have been marked down their answers in the test question papers.

3. All new recruits should pass the GLT academy technical competency assessment as one of the mandatory criteria for ending the probation status -- DO YOU EVER REALIZE HOW MANY SENIOR ENGINEERS, TEAM LEADS AND MANAGERS IN GLTM REPEATED FAILED THEIR ACADEMY COMPETENCY ASSESSMENTS?

4. The technical interview panel for the first round interview should be made up of senior engineer or team lead from other team/project which share the same technical/technology skill set but have no conflict of interest.
- DO YOU KNOW SOME TEAM LEADS AND MANAGERS MIGHT HAVE CONDUCTED TECHNICAL INTERVIEW WITH THE CANDIDATES PROPOSED BY THE JOB AGENCIES THAT HAVE PERSONAL CONNECTION WITH THEM?

P/S: People are eagerly to join GLTM not because it is a best place to work or best place to grow.
These are simply because fresh graduates without proven technical competency/track record can simply obtain a job with RM2800 as starting monthly salary. The fresh graduates only need to sit for Internet-based technical assessment from home after the recruitment status has been comfirmed. (THIS IS A JOKE, ISN'T IT?)

Any Malaysian IT talents with 2 years working experience but possess no required technical skill sets that match their future job scope in GLT can easily secure a job with monthly salary RM 4000.

Any Malaysian IT talents with 3 years working experience but possess no required technical skill sets which match their future job scope in GLT can easily secure a job with monthly salary RM 5000.

Any Malaysian IT talents with 5 years working experience but possess no required technical skill sets which match their future job scope in GLT can easily secure a job with monthly salary ranging between RM 6000 to RM 8000.

These incompetent people once join GLT can introduce their friends and relatives who are as incompetent as them to the HR and then get RM2000 to RM3000 for every successful recruit put forward by them.

What's benefit for HSBC to cut jobs in UK and US merely for saving cost but giving away easy money to the people in the developing countries who possess not competency at all due to the flaws of the recruitment process?

i agree with all of the above but during my interview, i am having technical test on the spot. I want to have challenging job as a first job. So i need to know whether APAC provide extreme workload for the fresh graduate. i dont want to chillax, i want to work. Can i gain exposure in programming by working in high stress environment in apac? Does apac provide good learning platform?

You can try Quintiq if you are looking for challenging technical test...If you want stressful environment..you can try Accenture or Silverlake...You got offer from HSDM already ?

You would be able to know the working culture if you know the composition and reporting structure of your team.

Try to make a call to the HR to get the following clarifications about your team

Whether your BU head is based in China or India

Whether your line manager is a local, a Hongkie or an IT professional from India

Whether your team members are locals, from overseas


Management from or based in India, the management style tends to be high-handed, micro-managed, lack of knowledge and information sharing, a lot of long-winded but low productive meetings.

Local Chinese, typical China taukeh or Cinapek style - you need to come early and go back late (you shouldn't go back as long as they are still in the office). Your performance evaluation will be based on your software deliverable quality and the number of hours you are willing to show face and online on the sametime messenger.

Hongkie, very meticulous and demanding

Malay - typical government GLC style

Amoh - very diplomatic (play safe style), tends to maintain status quo, easy going when they are in safe mode

I assume you're not a fresh grad? I got few friends whom had started working with hsbc since few months back. All of them are fresh grad.
One of them quit after a month, I guess due to workload. Another two seems fine. Always going back home at night, to avoid jam and get more allowance.
One friend is on channel deployment (rdc) department, another one I dunno. Not much I can add here..

NA you work a lot with indians from india.. So far they are really bringing a lot of people into their team as they mention they have a lot of projects to do. But I don't really see the work load as I see some of them really bored. Rest of it I cannot comment as I m not from NA team.

parking inside building is really expensive too in WH.its about 320 a month? anyway, please do take note that after 10pm, MJ area is not really a safe place. If you have to work till midnight, better you work from home (WFH) and ask company to provide you with internet

Dont expect much from this company. Any company you join , even a very very small company will have better benefits and working culture than HSDM.

Why i say so?
You will face two extreme situation, if you join HSDM.
1. Work like a dog with no OT claim
2. Can sit there for 2, 3 week or even 1 month without anything to do.

It is not good for a fresh graduate to join this company, as what you learn is very limited over here, and hsbc specific. You will find your skill not competitive although you are an experienced person in fact. (especially u join software house next time)

In terms of benefit, HSBC is a low budget subsidiary, and after you got your salary adjustment and bonus, you will find that it is not competitive at all (the bonus is prorated aka less than 1 month salary, if u are not working for 1 year)

Take note the actual working hour is not as what they mention. If you think you are ready to work long hours without being paid overtime everyday then u can consider. Average expectancy of new joinee there is less than 6 months...
