    Pros

    You can learn a lot from your manager. You may get first-hand experience of the financial product of SG.

    Your sit next to your manager and he can see whatever you are doing. It's may cause a little bit depressing.

    I have been working at Société Générale full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is to work with managers and directors who are committed to helping grow your career.

    Cons

    One of the challenges is that pay increases don't match what you can get on the open market at least not as fast as one would hope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some advice to Upper management would be to continue to help make the NY office feel as important as the Paris office.

    Pros

    Societe Generale offers a great perspective in terms of careers mixing the culture of Europe and the US
