    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.
