No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great vacation policy. Some opportunities to be promoted because good people don't stay.

Cons

Very low comp to a level you are ashamed discussing in any social event. Too many French people but heard better than other French companies.

Advice to Management

Make your employees understand you are not going to work hard because of the pay, and they should not either just in case they have unrealistic expectation of the compensation.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BNP Paribas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Cheaper Health Benefits - it because my employer is more generous,

    2. Employee Discounts - from the bank itself, from 4-5 different cell phone companies, museums, etc.
    3. Established Retirement Program - my company administered their own retirement program, so the money went in much quicker

    4. Easier to change jobs without changing companies - the main reason this is a benefit is if you have 401K money that needs to vest or a pension plan. I had several co-workers change jobs within the company.

    Cons

    It is sometimes difficult to get things done because the company is so large. For example, getting software "pushed" to my work computer.

    Biggest issue is corporate officers micromanage entirely too much

    LOTS of pointless meetings

    LOTS of pointless graphs that are requested by corporate officers

    No training for incoming employees. Have to seek it out on your own.

    Slow pay increase system

    Advice to Management

    Listen With Full Attention
    Listen to Understand
    Shared Meaning in Communication
