    Pros

    smaller than US banks so its easier to get to know everyone in the business..

    Cons

    You will not advance unless you are french. 2nd class citizen... I can't even read half of my emails. My boss still continues to write some of his emails in french when he knows I don't understand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it's divide can't be anymore obvious.. They need to do something about the American/French culture divide

  2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the employees in your group. They will be more loyal to the bank, if you do. Know what your employee's jobs are, it will make you a better manager.
