Contrôleur de gestion (Former Employee) –  AlgerNovember 4, 2018
L'environnement de travail chez BNP Paribas est très agréable, que ça soit:
Le lieu; qui pour moi est le meilleur siège en Algérie qui respecté les normes mondiales, d'ailleurs c'est l'un des rares certifié HQE en Afrique.
Management, très encourageant.
Gestion de Carrière: très prometteuse.

Emerging Markets Credit Trading, Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 19, 2018
Well capitalized for the moment, but without clear direction, it seems like just another bank conglomerate looking to grow any way possible, trial and error, no clear mission, just trying to get senior execs paid..
Pros
nice office facility
Cons
lack of compelling mission

Pros
Good working environment
Cons
Was only their for six months.

Heavily administrative; all about politics; demeaning and uninspiring management
Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 11, 2018
After a few years, desperate to find a better place. No viable business strategy. Poor management that seems to be more interested in saving their jobs than doing business. Managers totally lack charisma and just follow guidelines from Paris. All about politics not business - except doing what every other bank does but five years later. Not mentioning compensation or the lack thereof. Oh and HR are complete morons. If you are smart and want to close deals, just stay away from BNP.
Pros
none

BNP Paribas Review
Assistant Vice President, Data Scientist (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJOctober 2, 2018
My boss at BNP was exceptional. Approachable and smart.

Typical day at work:
Go in, crunch data numbers, meet with various supporting teams, and develop project plans and automated models for reporting.

What I learned:
Everything about OTC Options - and large positions in the capital markets arena. Also, Alteryx, the data analytics software I became the company "SME" of.

Management:
direct management was great.

Workplace Culture:
Awesome holiday parties, and generally good interactions with colleagues.

Hardest Part Of the Job:
Changing higher level management created some workplace drama.

Most Enjoyable Part Of the Job:
Interaction with great people who were knowledgeable and approachable and working with great data!

Research Analyst, Emerging Markets Fixed Income (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 20, 2018
I gave probably too good rating because I was very junior...When you are junior you learn more things and see things from different angle
But the place was big (even though it was many years ago), well functioning trading floor, and great business focus even back then.

Stage découverte (Former Employee) –  AlgerSeptember 2, 2018
Une journée de travail typique se doit de commencer avec des bonnes habitudes de politesse et de vie commune autour d'un café mais attention la pause est uniquement de 5 mins ! Concernant la culture du lieu de travail, j'ai éprouvé un réel attachement à cette firme multinationale et à cette idée de partager toutes les connaissances requises pour un stagiaire chez BNP ED !
Pros
Repas Gratuits
Cons
Les procédures bancaires restent à parfaire !

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
