    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (More than 5 years)


    Great time off policy, up to 34 days plus holidays. Company likes to reward and promote from within.


    The culture is to work hard, which often results in longer days. Unfortunately, the expectation is that all work is done in office, so there is minimal work from home

    Advice to Management

    Better work from home would help offset the expectation of long work hours, but the extra time off helps.

    Quicker than expected, but the waiting is very long. After the superday, it kept me waiting for around a month and reponds slowly. Maybe it is French I guess.
