    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are pretty good educational opportunities and courses offered on a regular basis

    Cons

    demand to breathe the world of finance even on the weekends and working late is unrealistic. this could have just been my manager though.

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at BNP Paribas full-time for more than 2 years

          StarStarStarStarStar
            Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

            I worked at BNP Paribas full-time

            Pros

            Culture is great, really nice chill people.

            Cons

            You feel like a second class citizen to the Euro employees. Similar teams to ours in Europe would use us to do their scut work.

          • "Great place to work but..."

            Current Employee - Assistant Vice President in New York, NY

            I have been working at BNP Paribas full-time for more than 2 years

            Pros

            Most of the collaborators are very cooperative and helpful. Lots of events and good training programs and opportunities to network. Over-all good place to work at.

            Cons

            Like many other corporates, this company will promote values of inclusion, diversity, and respect for colleagues and is good on paper and publicity. However, targets of harrassment or bullying remain helpless and ignored. Such targets end up economically displaced due to inaction from the company - they get discouraged and just leave. But I guess it is how it is.

            Advice to Management

            Challenge your paradigms. Don’t play games. Pay attention to the “out group”. Do not tolerate bad behavior to protect your own interests.

          • "Removing or moving so many employees"

              Compensation is 20 percent below market (on average).
