    Great life style, great vacation and benefits package, overall nice colleagues to work with, diversified product, process, and business exposure.

    Constant reorganization, re re organization and change in senior management level, especially after 2008 the rogue trader scandal. Senior management seems to be very confused in terms of their vision.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, interesting challenges in the daily work.
    There is also free nespresso coffee available for everyone in the pantry

    Cons

    difficult if you don't speak french, too many situations where you have to rely on people in Paris, which tends to be annoying in the long run

    Advice to Management

    Ask more, reward more, pay more.
    The management should consider firing people who do not perform well enough, instead of just keeping them around.
