Manager (Current Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – May 10, 2018
A great bank to work for , and growing in the US. With its extensive global reach, BNP offers plenty of mobility opportunities, provides excellent work life balance and benefits, as well as advancement opportunities. Compensation is competitive.
Used to be a good place, now very underpaid with a lot of bureaucracy
Vice President (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 27, 2018
It used to be a good place to work. While the bank has a decent benefits the compensation is very low and doesn't increase year over year. The bank became very bureaucratic with many layers of not-effective management.
Universal Banker 1 (Current Employee) – Norfolk, NE – April 25, 2018
Worked for a local bank in my area for 15 years before BOTW. I feel like our branch is a work family and it is a great place to work! I have learned so much in my 3 years with this bank, much more than the last job. If you are on the fence, I say give it a try, you won’t regret it! Also, the company really focuses on customer service and we go above and beyond to truly do what’s best for them! Benefits are great as well as the pay.
Best job ever at the time I had a wonderful experience the management team was really knowledgeable and professional
Commercial Loan Processor II- Processed (Former Employee) – Walnut Creek, CA 94596 – April 18, 2018
I wasn’t happy living in the San Francisco’s Bay Area my heart wasn’t in San Francisco it was up in Alaska. The employees and the employer was a great group of wonderful men and women that enjoyed there careers with the bank. I went through a very Tedious interview that went for 3 days long with a few bank managers. They all decided to hire me knowing that I wasn’t going to stay in California. I gave them 100% of my abilities to working with the bank and I kept my working professional relationship with each member of the bank right up to the CEO since I was only a few doors from the CEO office.

BNP Paribas is a great place to get acclimated with the industry. Wonderful working environment and benefits to employees. Daily challenges and obstacles that help build your confidence and knowledge of the overall business.
Business Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 11, 2018
Most managers at the firm are decent humans, but sometimes you encounter an outlier who will make entire department's life miserable. If you are a part of support functions you have a job security but advancement is a completely different story - you have to be a part of the 'click'
well paced, great bennefits, mostly great people
HR does not reinfource policies and promotes senior management unethical behaviour
Banker I (Former Employee) – Portland Oregon – April 2, 2018
Management is horrible. Everyone expects things that aren’t voiced. Management gets upset when you ask questions. They’re super pushy about sales and makes the job super stressful. They micro manage your every move.
Management, attitude, negative work environment, stressful environment
Manager (Former Employee) – New York – March 27, 2018
If you are French join, else find something better. Extremely dysfunctional style of management where work culture is always rewarding the worst. There is lack of integrity on financial compliance for government.
Compared to other banks, BNP is overall a nicer bank to work for
Securities Lending Trading Operations (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 23, 2018
BNP Paribas is one of the more socially responsible banks to work for. The culture is not as brash as some of the other banks, and they do care about their employees as shown in the benefits. Lateral and department mobility is good.
Good benefits, Nice culture, Global presence
Culture changed a little when they purchased Bank of America's Prime Brokerage
Steria contractor (Former Employee) – Paris – March 23, 2018
The experience at BNP Paribas Arval was good and very rich. I had a good time working with my team, the salary was good, and I worked at night from home for emergency instructions so I the salary was better than expected. I still in touch with my coworkers.
Vice President, Business Development (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 22, 2018
Bank of the West is owned by a French financial conglomerate that does not understand US real estate lending. The bank is undercapitalized, which results in uncompetitive interest rate pricing for our borrowers. This puts the sales force in a difficult position to compete against the larger, more technologically savvy lenders. If you are a seasoned lender this is not the bank for you. If you are borrower this is not the bank for you, unless you enjoy pain. Treasury management products are 15 years behind the competition. Branches are outdated and in average to poor condition.
Laziness is tolerated
Absence of leadership, not competitive, archaic processes
Service Banker (Former Employee) – North Platte, NE – March 20, 2018
Very high school mentality from mgmt. Play games and very demeaning. Very fake with customers. Nice to face but then talk behind their back. Not a good place to work. If you have a problem and go thru correct channels they say no retaliation - that is such a lie. They throw you under the bus. If you make a mistake mgmt tries to humiliate you in front of customers. Expectations are not realistic. You don't get compensation but mgmt does.
Vac time they pay much tell you when you can take it. Mgmt is not professional, work attitude is very childish, very two - faced
