    I worked at BNP Paribas (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working hours not bad.

    Cons

    Most employees are very unhappy. Firm tends to lock employees in on Visa's and therefore the promotional structure is non-existent as they know the foreign employees don't have options, this, in turn, bleeds over onto all employees. Very inefficient in all processes and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Management tends to be very fickle in entry and exit of markets which leads to low morale and high turnover.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Impossible to communicate with people in Canada Offices. No leadership in the team. No opportunities or no talent development. French comes first.

    Advice to Management

    Should learn how to communicate with people in USA. Impossible to communicate with any higher managements.

    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vacation Days (but hey, that won't feed you; money/salary will).

    Cons

    Started near shoring jobs (ITO Ops, Payment/Trade Services, Human Resources, etc.) in 2014. In 2016, almost 200 ppl were layed off because of near shoring to Canada then the cuts continued during 2017 and will continue. Anyone with a job on ITO will eventually find the axe or the "opportunity" to relocate to Canada (Quebec). Read the other reviews, you will find similar language. Bonus sucks even if you achieve an above average annual review. The usual excuse is "we need money to pay the fines/regulatory".

    If you see jobs in ITO or Trade & Treasury Solutions, run away. It is a dead end.
    Before accepting the job, read and inform yourself.

    Advice to Management

    You should close the office and just leave a rep office. In any case most jobs are being sent to Canada.

    BNPP in the US is a regional office, not a headquarter. The feeling and treatment of a "big brother" watching

    Advice to Management
