    I worked at BNP Paribas for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Pick-up and/or drop facilities are complimentary 2. Good Work-Life balance 3. WFH is available 4. Enough Paid Leaves per year 4. Good to join if you want to live in your Comfort Zone.

    Cons

    1. It is 'Service providing Consultancy' whose clients are BNP Worldwide; so you will find Consultancy culture 2. Even though it's french organisation, most of the French Leaders in Senior Management have left from Mumbai Office and 'Indian' people have taken their place who are deteriorating work culture 3. HR are not professional you will come to know when you start salary negotiation 4. Compensation is not at par comprising with other IBs 3. Low Appraisal 4. Contractor won't get internalise anymore because of (2) & (3) 5. You will find most of the systems running on legacy code, so you may find yourself doing patch-up work most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    1. I am ashamed to say this - Indian Management is deteriorating this 'Nice' organisation. Either train these guys or bring French people back to India.
