A good place to work, friendly knowledgeable people. Fair salaries , job advancement can be slow as there are limited management roles available. Much outsourcing to Mumbai and Lisbon.

Management racially profile and discriminate against people of colour and it鈥檚 is very evident as they entire front of House team are non-British/English Caucasians , they need to have a variety of ethnicities and races. Some People may not have an issue with it but personally it was to much to deal with constantly being treated like the black sheep.

I always say people don't leave the Company/ Bank, people leave and move because of the individuals they work with as well as the management styles. BNP Paribas is a great bank to work for but i found their management style is very different to the usual norm. After working at BNP i now know why employees do not trust HR, HR indeed works with management and do not care about the ethical well being of employees which is really sad. You have managers that are clueless about the job and you wonder how they made it to the promotion at the same time making their colleagues life very miserable which results to a toxic and unhealthy workplace. I have to say during my time at BNP i am very disappointed with the management style.
Pros
The bank has alot of opportunities to grow
Cons
Horrific manager

Would not recommend working here, personally, continually cutting costs where they can find, they charge contractors 10% on food and drink which I find shocking, 20% more if you use the gym. Additionally, you do not get managerial support when getting a chance to learn a new area. You don鈥檛 treat a BNP Contractor as a member of staff!
Pros
None
Cons
Prices of food/drink/gym for contractors.

Pros
Excellent people

Working as a consultant at BNP Paribas was a great experience. Had the opportunity to work with different number of teams upstream and downstream on different topics. I learnt a lot on all relevant aspects to do with my role. The culture within my team and with others also was great as we worked well together and would have team lunches and other out of work social events too. The hardest part of my job was probably situations were there we system issues that took long to fix and there was pressure from downstream teams to receive results and trying to deal with every call or email in time. This would also involve working long hours. However, still enjoyed the helpfulness of all teams that would be involved in fixing these issues from development to IT Support.
Pros
Great culture, free things from events
Cons
Long hours, constant team transitions at times

Good range of skills to be picked up at this bank. Most people are great to work with. A decent work/life balance. Most management is French (and will remain French) - Nepitism is high in this institution. Job security is low - many divisions being outsourced to Lisbon or Mumbai
Pros
Good subsidised lunches, good Xmas party
Cons
Very French

Overall a good Company, days are typically long - although 9-5, it would be expected that you stayed until it is done. Some management can be challenging however, a good job was always rewarded at the end of the year. The hardest part of the job is dealing with regulatory requirements and changes as rules change constantly. The most enjoyable part of the job is it's diversity of people. Being an International Bank, you would meet and enjoy the company of people from all over the world.
Pros
Good Pension Scheme; Health Insurance; Annual Bonuses
Cons
Long Hours. The outsourcing functions can be challenging.
