I enjoyed working here as the culture is very welcoming and friendly. It also had a good working atmosphere and a lot of the people socialised outside of work.

Very nice organization to work with. I worked within the structured finance group. The role involved working as a Business analyst and also taking the added responsibility of Project Management. The manager was very nice and helpful.

Great colleagues, stressful at times due to lack of knowledge within other teams that you rely on. Difficult processes to follow to complete simple tasks means work progresses slowly. You do feel appreciated and senior management send good messages and seem to value the staff.

Fairly relaxed in my department but times when focus and a high degree of seriousness is required.

Very nice office and a focus on social contract and flexible working which is very good.


People are nice and willing to share information.

Very poor development of junior staff who are all on short-term temporary contracts. Hence, salaries are also low.
Both middle and senior management is very weak, but good at playing politics.

Extremely bureaucratic and will shut down any ideas to change existing procedures.

Toxic

Pure French culture and no room for career development. It’s not a good place very experienced people who have ambition. On this basis, I won’t recommend this bank to anyone

It was a great business with nice people, however they are a little rudderless with their strategy. They started to business development with my new position and then after four years decided to close due to head office restrictions.

Some good people who know what they are talking about surrounded by individuals whose sole purpose at work is to 'tick boxes' and to not take responsibility. Impossible to determine how success is actually measured, project over runs and budget overspends do not appear to be a obstacle to career progression, particularly if you are French.

good pay, everyone was friendly and helpful when working as a team, benefits are also pretty good. however, limited progression as a trainee as they like to keep you as a trainee fir a bit of time with no guarantee of further progression either within your role or different roles in the company.
Pros
good pay/holiday
Cons
limited progression further within the company

work is somewhat dull and repetitive and you are a small person in a huge eco-system but they value their interns as any other regular employee.
Work life balance respected in Audit
