    Pros

    Lots of downsizing, heavy pressure put on remaining staff to get work done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide capacity, find ways to cut costs instead of people

    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overtime + Bonus for AVP and below. Vacation and Paternity leave awesome as well.

    Cons

    Great benefits lead to complacency and the bank is very slow to fire, as such you have to manage a good amount of terrible performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run your lean team through ops with the ability to identify and fire where necessary. Your HR department is killing your talent pool by protecting the fat.

    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very laid back. Not too corporate, and dont have stacks of paper work and red tape to cut through to get something done. AMAZING benefits, they still believe in the PPO insurance policy. And they had great pay and bonuses, for all, even the little man. Lots of bank holidays too.

    Cons

    Not too much room for advancement. Company hasn't been very stable as of yet.
