Debt Capital Markets Intern (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 23, 2017
The typical work day is filled with a variety of tasks that allows you to take on a new challenge mostly every day. There are a lot of opportunities to apply innovate ideas to the projects you work on and to take what you have learned and apply it across various tasks. The hardest part of the job is being able to apply both technical skills and qualitative thoughts to the models you use and how to apply them to various presentations.
Reg reporting (Former Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – April 26, 2017
I can see why this company gets bad reviews and is going downhill. Went on a first interview in Jersey City… went great. So great there was a second, follow up interview with product controller, MD, and CFO the next week. CFO tells me I will be interviewed by HR , the following week which is normal protocol before an offer is made. I email their HR dept, no response. I call HR and the Director who interviewed me in the first round. Again, no response after 3 weeks. I'm sure they felt im wasting their time with courtesy follow ups, but its my time they wasted and were so rude and unprofessional to not even at least respond that they found someone else or did not feel I was qualified. Negative feedback is better than no feedback. My experience with them shows alot about their job culture and inconsideration they probably show to their own employees. Stay away.
Ecommerce Onboarding Associate Consultant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 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.
Vice President Client Onboarding & Tax Reg Team (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 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.
Rates Sales & Trading Application Support Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 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.
Integration into the global environment is a challenge.
