    Pros

    Great work life balance. Good exposure to business and management if you are working on the right project.

    Career growth is very slow and you have to push your way through to get noticed or to get things done.There's a lot of bureaucracy in processes which otherwise could be simpler.

    Please get rid of some incompetent managers and promote deserving individuals. Also can be more transparent about the company's strategy.

    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.
