I worked at BNP Paribas as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Enjoyed working with a dynamic team with lots of knowledge.
Good Pay.
Great brand name.
Manhattan location was actually quite optimal.

Cons

Lower level employees were running around doing mundane tasks were really not all that relevant to the job description. I didn't end up pursuing an offer.

    I have been working at BNP Paribas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    close to public transit options in NY

    Cons

    Some departments, including HR and Audit/Compliance do not follow whistleblower framework policies. In fact, several auditors have been terminated after discovering major compliance issues in US and latin america. Poor outlook for the parent holding company if these issues continue.

    There are several issues oh how the Jersey city branch is run. New employees are not regularly reported as new hires to NJ division of labor, and due to on-going reorganization, when there is a layoff, NJ has no record of your employment at BNP. Keeping in mind that they are moving hundreds of IT and operations jobs from NY/NJ to Montreal, this creates an issue.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at BNP Paribas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, global reach, senior people from larger/higher-ranked banks

    Cons

    French. Fickle, do no seem very loyal to or willing to work with (especially) junior employees as they begin their career. Good luck trying to jump from middle office to front, or climb the ladder very much if at all in certain front office groups.

    Advice to Management

    Don't call a guy a star analyst one week and let them go the next week, especially after they've been in the office until 12am every day all that week.
