    Pros

    benefits/vacation aren't bad, work/life balance is good. a lot of good people work there.

    Cons

    very political. North America is not well managed. hard to see how the business can be successful long term.

    Advice to Management

    spend more than one day a year in the branches, preferably when you're not laying people off.

    Pros

    BNP Paribas bought us, lied then dumped us and treated the Chicago office like the red-headed step child. The whole experience was very disheartening overall.

    Cons

    The vacation policy was generous.

    Advice to Management

    I felt there wasn't any management that cared. To ask for help or clarification with the positions we were left with was pointless.

    Pros

    Good benefits and hours of work. Social. flat management. Training opportunities. My experience at BNP Paribas was a good one. Its a good place to work with nice people, good benefits, hours, very social, flat management. Opportunities for training and career progression if you want and push for it.

    Cons

    Communication from management can be slow at times and requests not always carried out. Not much movement on salary increases over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with staff. Listen to staff requests.

    Pros

    Collaborative nature, fairly flat structure at the office I worked at. Decent hours and in general very knowledgeable people around.

    Cons

    The higher up you get the more the need arises to speak French. IT infrastructure is VERY bad, the non-investment departments do not seem to be very flexible/helpful most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Improve IT infrastructure!

    Pros

    Global opportunities and a wide range of product offerings. Some very talented people in various parts of the company. Reasonably well-known name, especially in Europe.

    Cons

    Very poor management, especially senior management. Cannot conceive of a world outside the cozy club of French finance. The whole is much less than the sum of the parts. While there are some very talented people, they don't run the company, unfortunately.
