Extremely bureaucratic, comp below street. Hard to get ahead if you're not French.

I worked at BNP Paribas full-time

Pros

Better work/life balance than other banks. Good bank to move to if you're at Director/MD level and looking to relax.

Cons

Bureaucracy everywhere: it's impossible to get anything done. Huge disconnect between French and American employees. Limited opportunity for junior people. Software is archaic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't expect to succeed in the United States with employees who lack basic English proficiency.

    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great vacation policy. Some opportunities to be promoted because good people don't stay.

    Cons

    Very low comp to a level you are ashamed discussing in any social event. Too many French people but heard better than other French companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees understand you are not going to work hard because of the pay, and they should not either just in case they have unrealistic expectation of the compensation.
