    Pros

    Ce stage m'a permis de mieux comprendre le fonctionnement RH d'un grand groupe, vue d'ensemble sur les métiers de la banque.
    Participation aux réunions avec chefs de projet RH de plusieurs départements et même de l'étranger.
    Equipe sympa.
    Très bonne rémunération.
    Horaires très convenables.

    Cons

    Je me suis beaucoup ennuyée, surtout au début, il n'y avait pas beaucoup de tâches pour moi.
    Ma maître de stage était souvent très occupée, pas souvent présente.
    Je n'ai pas eu un seul point de stage, pas même à la fin. Difficile de progresser !
    Pas beaucoup de responsabilités, sauf un projet mais qui ne m'a pas pris énormément de temps, surtout des tâches support un peu rébarbatives.
    Je n'ai pas pu participer aux rendez-vous avec les opérationnels.
    Locaux austères (tour Kupka).
