    Pros

    Good American managers, good benefits, large balance sheet

    Cons

    Now hampered by sanctions, hopeless French top managers, compensation will be affected by sanctions, senseless cost cutting

    Advice to Management

    Many good people have gone because of the Bank's policies and politics. Get them back before the business falls apart. Put an American in the top spot

    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Younger management, less of a logjam at the Director/MD level.

    Cons

    Bad place if you are American. There is a blatant preference preference for native French speakers.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot rely on the high margin, complex products. The basic blocking & tackling would bolster the bottom line with an investment in equity research.
