ProsGood work/life balance with reasonable hours.
Good benefits
Vacation policy (five weeks after five years of service)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Vice President (Current Employee) New York, NY

    I have been working at Société Générale


    Pros: At times of recession, as we just had, SG did not lay off nearly as many people… Cons: The price you pay for job stability is reflected in your paycheck. Also job stability implies that people should be let go… Advice to Senior Management: Respect talent. Pay your performers. Cut the deadest of the deadweight. Don't assume… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
