I have been working at Société Générale

ProsLots 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

ConsFrench 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 Senior ManagementGo to see and listen your teams when they raise problems, stop to shoot them systematically.
Don't stay in your glass fishbowl

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
