    I worked at Société Générale full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Good culture. HR listens. A little bit more relaxed versus other American investment banks.

    Cons

    Hours were long, SG is not the most competitive bank on the Street. Deals you work on are always those that is not loved by most of Wall Street. But that could be good for experience as you get to learn about a lot of cool niche companies.

    Interview

    Apply through school, skype interview. The interviewer came from sales&trading and did not ask me a lot of resume questions and technical questions. The interviewer is nice but I think we stuck in the same question for too long and he did not have time to ask me other questions.
