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

    Pros

    Central location in Paris. Good company benefits (but I guess, it's thanks to the French law)

    Cons

    I don't even know how to summarize the company's really poor corporate culture.
    Women are officially underpaid up to 25% (this information is officially publshed by the internal unions). BNPP claims to be international but above minor team's management lever is only managed by French. It was shocking to see how openly it discriminates its Parisian employees according to their status (the support services were never invited to the general team events. Is it even possible in the moredn corporate world?). Employee's communication is close to zero. Being a foreigner in Parisian office is such a challenge as no welcoming information is provided by the local HR.
    No long-term career progression, no training offered even is you have a right to the certain hours of training/year. Poor remuniration comparing to the anglo-saxon competitors. Internal mobility is favored by the local HR but you need to do their job and find a place yourself.

    Advice to Management

    "Evolution is the only solution"...or degradation is inevitable.

    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Un grand groupe international où la mobilité sur différentes régions ou pays est possible.
    Un très bon CE et pas mal de vacances à l'année.

    Cons

    Aucune intégration, les nouveaux entrants sont livrés à eux même!
    Les employés sont clairement sous payés pour le travail fourni malgré les avantages du CE.
    C'est une honte pour un grand groupe comme la BNP Paribas qui vend les produits les plus chers dans le domaine bancaire.

    Advice to Management

    Considérer le travail des employés qui permet votre pérennité actuelle, plus d'humanité et une plus de réactivité au niveau des ressources humaines.
