Many contractors
Ecommerce Onboarding Associate Consultant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 10, 2017
This firm relies on a large number of contractors, but that was good for me in this case. My role was pretty busy working along with other support teams. There was a good level of autonomy as well. Most employees there are friendly and good to work with.
Culture is pretty good for a bank.
Pros
Great benefits and coffee.

Smaller Bank
Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 21, 2017
You get more opportunity to learn different products. It's easier because this is a smaller bank. There are lots of classes the banks offer to help with your career.
Pros
Courses to build more skill sets
Cons
Spread thin on coverage

Vice President Client Onboarding & Tax Reg Team (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 18, 2017
Learning how to work in an unfamiliar environment where the culture is vastly different from my prior firm where I worked for almost 10 years. The hardest part of the job is trying to comply with IRS tax regulations while following internal firm policy guidelines. Overall, Societe Generale is a good place to work. Just need to have strong ability to adapt to the culture.

Excellent European bank

Good management but lack of innovation initiative. The bank tries to evolve but is still not taking onto account the actual environment (startups, fintech).

Do not recommend.
intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 3, 2017
Serious gap between management and the rest of the team, Poor communication and lack of leadership. Management will overload itself and lash at junior staff as soon as it becomes overwhelmed.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Some people there are relics from another time and should be put to pasture

Challenging global environment.
Rates Sales & Trading Application Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 30, 2017
In the past decade SG decided to use head office applications in all branch regions including the near-shoring of global support teams.
For long term stability one must learn applications and get connected with the global development teams as well as all interacting upstream and downstream applications.
Pros
Many opportunities.
Cons
Integration into the global environment is a challenge.
