I have been working at Société Générale full-time for more than a year

Pros

very laidback. In IT, you can consistently miss deadlines and senior management will totally be fine with it.

Cons

not for smart/ agressive people. work is mediocre and doesnt require too much intellect. Unfortunately, pay will reflect the same.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring senior managers from Service Companies- they bring the horrid "billing" culture into the workforce and are slowly turning this organization into a chop-house like TCS!

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Lucky enough to learn a lot, unfortunately salary and position in company more related to other factors than performance

    I worked at Société Générale full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Less stress than American banks.

    Cons

    A lot of politics and not enough drive nor collaboration. Getting up trough the ladder is not a matter of performance. Very fuzzy area when it comes to bonuses...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look down at the people doing the work. Motivators completely absent.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
