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


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


    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.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Société Générale.

    Interview Details

    I was selected to interview after submitting my resume through a school-sponsored database. I attended their super day over the phone because I couldn't fly out at the time (Snowpocalypse '14). I only had two interviews that lasted about 20 minutes each. The first was more of a judge of fit (why do I want to work here, what do I think I'd be doing for them, etc.) and the second picked at my qualifications to be a good legal intern (how do I think I'm qualified for this position). They got back to me in about a week with their decision.
