I have been working at Société Générale

Pros

Lots of vacation time, especially if you have been with the company for more than 5 years
Ability to travel to France or other SG locations, if you are lucky
Until recently, the job positions are fairly stable and secure.
Most groups and peers are usually very nice to work with.

Cons

If you are not French, you can only get so far. Definitely a glass ceiling! Also, be prepared to get paid less than everyone else in the industry.
If you want to advance or get promoted in your career, don't work here. Expect to wait many, many (MANY) years in between titles.
Lots of politics. Innovation may come from other regions, such as the Americas, but they are usually either ignored or stolen by the Paris office.
If you work in an office other than the Paris headquarters, you are confined to just doing your tasks, and take an extreme amount of direction from the mother office
