    Pros

    Growing fast - lots of new opportunities
    Fantastic food in the cafeteria
    Great place to learn on the job
    Good perks if you ask for them

    Cons

    Back office is out of the Stone Age
    "Home Office"/Paris influence makes getting work done difficult
    Work/Life balance is atrocious for a company trying to attract and retain new talent
    Tone from the top needs serious work to set a positive corporate culture - they have a long way to go.
    Set in their ways - this is not the best bank on the street, but you would never know that talking to the old guard here.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and understand that new, fresh talent may come with good ideas
    Embrace change and encourage disruptive thinking
    Better family benefits (parental leave) and flexible working

    Pros

    The culture and diversity was great.

    Cons

    There is currently low morale and management shows a lack appreciation and respect for employees hard work and dedication to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect and show them how much you appreciate their hard work. Compensation is not always the way to show your appreciation just saying thank you for your hard work is just as good.
