    I worked at Groupe Crédit Agricole full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will leave right at 5:00pm or 6:00pm. Nice People. You can go there and to do the minimum and collect a paycheck.

    Cons

    Outdated. Heavy Micro-management. Technology is poor. No employee inspiration, No tools to be successful, which basically does not allow for growth.

    I have been working at Groupe Crédit Agricole full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Low to mid pressure stress levels. Generous 5 weeks vacation, 3 PD and 6 sick days, 9 to 5 work day, good benefits, employees tend to stay on the job longer in comfortable positions,

    Cons

    Too Bureaucratic with Management, Paris tends to micromanage other department team members in other cities, duties may not reach deadlines on time, systems are outdated and IT team is too slow with problem solving, low compensation as compared to market levels, no raises in years, bonus are low despite great annual earning made by the company, promotions are not given even when asked,

    I worked at Groupe Crédit Agricole full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Healthcare - Paid Time Off (20+, if you're French you get 30... yea, they discriminate) - Work life balance (mainly because not that much work is being done there).

    Cons

    Where do I even begin... - Compensation is far below street (what do you expect when they have a communist bonus structure and veterans that are complacent about not pulling their own weight) - Place inside looks like it was made out of a cat-post from the 70's - Employees openly/shout on the floor how they hate their own firm - Senior Management pretends like they do work by sitting in openly seen areas on the floor or walking around. But typically they like to go to the "Versailles Floor" to literally put their feet up and watch youtube (ask around and you will have plenty of people who have photos of them doing so) - Extremely homophobic, misogynist, and a racist environment that is toxic. Women have been harassed here and HR has not done their work to provide a safe environment for people of all races and genders. - Place is a revolving door - Colleagues do not have a tier 1 education so you can understand the level of work you're going to get. Wall Street Oasis should have a field day at this because it heavily applies here. - The long-standing veterans at the firm expect to hire others to do their own work and sneak out of work early to have a "break" - Internship program that lacks direction and real mentors - Too much bureaucracy from the HQ and not willing to take risks - Too many meetings (learn from Bezos... come on) - Cafeteria food that is appalling - Lack of camaraderie at the firm because of poor leadership - Not at all sanitary... Seriously it's like a frat-house bathroom - U.S. Associate programs and VIE roles shouldn't exist here in the states. Most/All of them lack drive because they already have a predestined deadline when to exit. - Hire more educated individuals with diverse backgrounds as opposed to just white privilege (I mean I'm guilty of being that but at least I stand up for diversity to make a difference) - Start treating your middle and office with some respect. We might be in the front office but doesn't mean we need to take it out on them on a daily basis if we're having a bad day - Software issues. Require everyone to learn to code or actually address issues properly as opposed to just shouting at it, complaining, and etc.
