Pros

Lots of vacations for them who want to have.
Great place to improve your skills if you work in the same sense of the politic culture.
Good global package.
Learn to work in a stress environment with calm and pro activeness

Cons

French company and people are reluctant to speak english
Too much politics at a certain level and problems are seen as a sight shooter than opportunities to improve.
Fix salary is under the concurrence

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go to see and listen your teams when they raise problems, stop to shoot them systematically.

    Pros

    Great life style, great vacation and benefits package, overall nice colleagues to work with, diversified product, process, and business exposure.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization, re re organization and change in senior management level, especially after 2008 the rogue trader scandal. Senior management seems to be very confused in terms of their vision.

    To enhance vision and decisiveness with respect to business strategy and direction of the company. To enhance communication with employees
