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

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

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

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -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!

    Pros

    Good worklife balance.
    All technologies exist in different groups.
    Hopefully they will realise that they need to starting recognising talent even if they are not french and promote them.

    Cons

    Technology wise best practices not followed.
    Talent unrecognised hence not retained.
    Good Work not appreciated.
    Just come and do stuff thats asked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise smart people within the firm even if they are not french. They can help the Bank grow. Retain smart people.
