    I worked at Groupe Crédit Agricole full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    25 vacation (VP & up), 3 personal, 6 sick, & 10 holidays 401k (both traditional & roth avail) match up to 6% + 3% annual discretionary contribution

    Cons

    compensation is not comparable to industry average specially if you have been with the company for a long time not much growth option available

    I have been working at Groupe Crédit Agricole full-time for more than 20 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tends to micromanage other department team members in other cities, duties may not reach deadlines on time, systems are outdated and IT team is too slow with problem solving, low compensation as compared to market levels, no raises in years, bonus are low despite great annual earning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,

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation for your employees. Cost of living keeps going up and Management needs to understand this. Cut down on the bureaucracies and micromanagement. Stick with a plan instead of opening investigative cases going nowhere. If you don't pay your employees well or give them raises, you get what you pay for!

    I worked at Groupe Crédit Agricole full-time for more than 2 years

    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...

    Advice to Management

    - Stop pretending to do work and actually do work. - Don't just setup impromptu meetings or "company conferences" (literally a wooden podium that is moved to the floor) to address concerns that should be taken individually with senior level people about morale. - Stop taking so many "work trips" where you're out of the office thinking you're going to make a difference by learning from other offices or showing up to...

      Pros

      Work/life balance is a plus. Benefits are comparable to other big companies

      Cons

      Minimal opportunity for minority women especially those who don't speak French.

      Advice to Management

      English should be the language spoken unless on a closed door all french speaking employees. People feel left out with side conversation spoken in French. Or, train people to speak french. Need one common language.
