Nice place to work, don't expect much mobility unless your French.

Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGood company, not bad overall environment. Very highly ranked International Company (looks good on Resume).

Related departments (i.e. Ops - FO and Legal) work fairly close together in order to resolve issues. Gives good opportunity for exposure.

ConsRecently too much Paris oversight -> Daily + Weekly + Monthly + Semi Annual reports.

-Limited chances for mobility or growth if you are not French.

Advice to Senior Management-Management should offer to assist in resolving issues within the team instead of placing blame.
-Try to be better involved in the day to day activities before making decisions.
-Also understand that not everyone can be perfect 100% of the time...pesonal life at times spills into the work place....were not robots, were people!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
