    Sales Analyst

    Former Employee - Sales Analyst in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    I worked at Amundi as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    The team is very friendly. The head and each team member schedule a private lunch with me to share their experiences. Very helpful.

    Cons

    There isn't too much personal communication between different teams. The hongkong office is an open style. No walls between all desks. A little bit noisy.

    Amundi Asset Management Review

    I have been working at Amundi

    Pros

    A job, like any other to pickup a pay check. They offer vacation time, personal days, health/medical benefits and a 401-K plan.

    Cons

    The firm has no direction and management is clueless as to bring in new clients and assets. Morale for the employees is very, very low and efforts are not made to improve the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the firm. Hire an outside consultant to totally revamp the management and running of the firm. Hire competent talent that can make the firm successful versus its peers.

    Pros

    Un leader avec une envergure et une profondeur qui peut fournir de bonnes opportunités à court terme pour certains. Une bon lieu où travailler pour les francs-maçons français (mais si vous en êtes un, vous n'aurez pas besoin de Glassdoor).

    A leader with scope and depth that can provide good short-term opportunities for some. A great place to work for french freemasons (but if you are one you do not need glassdoor).

    Cons

    Amundi est géré par un clan de banquiers d'investissement anciennement Calyon impitoyables. A moins que vous ne partagiez cette culture et ce bagage spéciaux, vous ne ferez jamais partie des prises de décisions (voir les autres contributions à propos d'une organisation, d'un management et de directions instables). Si vous pouvez, utilisez votre réseau pour en apprendre sur les nombreuses dépressions et oui, cas de suicide de responsables de niveau intermédiaires et de haut niveau.

    Amundi is run by a clan of ruthless ex-Calyon investment bankers. Unless you share this special culture and background you will never be part of decision-making (see other contributions about unstable organization, management, shifting directions). If you can, use your network to learn about middle and top-management many depression and yes suicide cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Faîte partir à la retraite l'équipe toute entière, vous êtes déjà suffisamment riches et ne faîtes rien pour les actionnaires ou les employés.

    Retire the whole team, you are already beyond wealthy and doing neither good for the shareholders or the employees.

    Pros

    Des gens sympathiques, située à Montparnasse, une bonne infirmerie

    Nice people; located in Montparnasse; nice infirmary

    Cons

    Une direction horrible : être à l'heure est plus important que le travail, tout le monde se bat pour dépenser son budget à la fin de l'année pour ne pas le perdre, les équipes de SI sont lentes et toujours surchargées, tout le monde travaille trop mais personne n'est présent après 19h, personne ne contredit le patron, mon N+2 m'a parlé deux fois en un an, les bureaux sont situés dans 5 endroits différents, la cafétéria est en sous-sol, les ressources humaines n'ont pas pu me donner de rendez-vous avant quatre semaines, les différends avec votre responsable d'équipe sont réglés une fois par an pendant l'évaluation, le reste du temps, vous devez prétendre que tout va bien, j'avais une urgence dentaire quand je me suis arraché une molaire sanglante et j'ai dû prendre l'après-midi pour aller chez le dentiste (ainsi que mon chef d'équipe me l'a dit, c'était exceptionnel qu'il me l'accorde avec un préavis si court)

    Horrible management: being on time is more important than the work; everybody fights to spend their budget at the end of the year so as not to lose it; the SI teams are slow and always overbooked; everyone is overworked but no one is at work after 7pm; nobody questions the CEO; my N+2 talked to me twice in one year; offices are in 5 different locations, the cafeteria is underground; human ressources couldn't give me an appointment within four weeks; problems with your team manager are adressed once a year during evaluation - the rest of the time, you have to pretend everything is great; i had a dental emergency when i pulled out a bleeding molar and I had to take an afternoon off to go to the dentist (as my team leader told me, it was exceptional he was giving it to me on such short notice)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dites bonjour chaque semaine à votre équipe, tenez vous au courant des projets, poussez vers plus d'unité dans l'équipe

    Say hello on a weekly basis to your team; be somewhat aware of projects; push for more team unity;

    Pros

    Grand gestionnaire d'actifs, donc une exposition à différents types de stratégies et produits, probablement une grande marque en Europe, mais cela aurait besoin d'être vérifié.

    big asset manager, therefore exposure to many different types of strategies and products. probably a big brand name in europe, but this would need to be verified

    Cons

    Un peu lente, les stagiaires ne reçoivent pas beaucoup de responsabilité et ne participent pas beaucoup à la vie de l'entreprise.

    a little slow, interns not given very much responsibility and do not participate much in life of the company
