    Pros

    Good company, not bad overall environment. Very highly ranked International Company (looks good on Resume).

    Related departments (i.e. Ops - FO and Legal) work fairly close together in order to resolve issues. Gives good opportunity for exposure.

    Cons

    Recently too much Paris oversight -> Daily + Weekly + Monthly + Semi Annual reports.

    -Limited chances for mobility or growth if you are not French.

    Advice to Management

    -Management should offer to assist in resolving issues within the team instead of placing blame.
    -Try to be better involved in the day to day activities before making decisions.
    -Also understand that not everyone can be perfect 100% of the time...pesonal life at times spills into the work place....were not robots, were people!
