Finance Control, Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJAugust 21, 2018
Good benefits but management is questionable. Only way to advance is to be of the native country, and very hard to really voice your opinions as management is for bias.

Typical day at work
Busser (Former Employee) –  Indian Wells, CAAugust 21, 2018
This job was very fun loved all the customers that came in. The job wasn’t always fast passed or stressful but on certain times of the day it would. Everything needed to be correct with little mistakes as possible.

Challenged management team, low comp, poorly structured
Equities Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 20, 2018
Management can be very hands-off, but slow decision-making and bureaucracy make progress difficult, with Paris as the priority for everything.

Has lean operations in many divisions, which can be a good opportunity for people to gain experience and responsibilities beyond which many hierarchies would normally allow. However, a lack of clear career progression and poor compensation mean's that the opportunity is capped.

Enormous organization, and US operations are not a focus or priority of the main bank.
Pros
28 days plus vacation, lax management, travel opportunities
Cons
Poor comp, lack of perks (as typical in finance), disorganized

Bank of the Worst
Senior Service Officer (Current Employee) –  ColoradoAugust 9, 2018
There is certainly a reason that Bank of the West is known among employees as Bank of the Worst. The sales goals are comparable to other banks; however the products are not. The pay is less than other financial institutions and the benefits are average. The best thing about the company is the ability to use tuition reimbursement. The management is TERRIBLE at all levels including branch, region, and executive. The culture is rather cutthroat given that the goals aren't that challenging. I was a high performing banker without having to put in an excessive amount of effort. This company is all about who you know and not what you know. Nepotism gets you far.
The growth strategy of the company is not sustainable and often leads to further setbacks because the plans are not well planned nor executed. The only thing I enjoyed day-to-day was customer interactions. 5 years ago, when I came on board, I felt that the company was headed in a good direction, at this point, I feel that the company will hire anyone willing to show up. The employees often behave as though they are being inconvenienced by the work itself or customers.
As a whole, knowing what I know now, I would never have started with the company. I stayed because of the location being close to home. A market manager was brought on that was very thoughtful and encouraging and she was great for my development. She has left the company due to many of the reasons listed above and this has been a catalyst in my seeking employment elsewhere.
Pros
tuition reimbursement
Cons
management, unsustainable growth plan

Typical workday
Corporate business Development manager (Former Employee) –  casablancaAugust 7, 2018
a banker should show up earlier before the open hour starts, begins with checking e-mail, re checking the schedule of the day. preparing the meeting with customers and potential clients. setting a daily goals to achieve... its also important to interact with the working environments cause lots of opportunities could be just around.

BNPP is a very good company to work for. There's a good work/life balance. Management allows employees to make decisions so long as they promote productivity.

Dreadful place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 5, 2018
Culture is stodgy, stoic and obdurate, eventually reacting to regulatory compliance with feckless gestures rather than making any attempt to improve policy, process, or procedures. Disgusting, actually.
