Former Employee - Spring Intern in London, England (UK)

I worked at BNP Paribas as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

- One of the world's biggest banks and a pioneer of financial innovation.
- Strong within structuring, syndicates, and derivatives.
- Global presence allows the bank to leverage local knowledge around the world.
- Great mobility schemes across both divisions and locations.
- Truly allows you to take on what you feel you are capable of, and provides great mentoring and training throughout your career which allows young professionals to have quick career advancement.

Cons

- The HR group seemed a bit unorganized and there was lack of communications between the interns and the company, especially in relations to the fast-track program for successful spring interns.
- An average IB salary and bonuses.
- Not too much prestige unless you work within derivatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your interns (including spring interns) with more respect. The lack of communication and professionalism gave me a poor impression of the bank as a whole.

    I have been working at BNP Paribas full-time

    Pros

    - good personal life balance
    - good values regarding team work

    Cons

    - not a meritocracy
    - weak management at all levels (a recent internal poll showed that more than 60% of BNP Paribas individuals are not happy with their management)
    - payroll lower than competitors
    - no business plan

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review all current management practice, publish a real business plan instead of acting the same way as during the Capital Market golden age (i.e. before 2008).
    This is a long way to go...
