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.

BNP Paribas London offers a good work/life balance and the pressure is not too high. However, the job I am doing on a day-to-day basis is redundant and there are very limited opportunities to go on a mission abroad.

A hard work ethic prevails like any investment bank, but culturally it's less about being seen to be aggressive/'a winner' and more about delivering success itself.

I worked at BNP Paribas for approximately two years at Marylebone and a short spell in the Aldersgate office, loved working there, great company, really lovely people whom I still see socially, very good Social aspect and fantastic catering facilities. I did work long hours, I was on a daily rate and worked within the Client Services team with maximum exposure to clients and Client Managers, which I really enjoyed and believe excelled at. I was also responsible for Audit ( external clients ) during extremely busy times in particular quarter, half and year end reporting. A great Firm.The hardest part of the job was during staff shortages, month end and Bank Holidays. Tube strikes were also a difficult aspect from Kent.
Pros
Subsidised Lunches
Cons
Long hours and Bank Holiday working ( occasionally )

I worked on a lot of high level programmes which I cannot get too much into for confidential reasons. A typical day at work is very fast paced even though it's an extremely friendly environment. I continue to learn and confirm that it's people that primarily drive projects forward. The hardest part of the job is when egos collide and affect the work on ground. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the deliverables come to fruition on time.

I was taken on as a temporary administrator. it was a basic role that I was filling until they had got some new starters trained up and eventually would re integrate my work into there new role. I was give three day to learn how to work on a new system and all the processes. I ended up staying longer than intended as almost all of the department left and new people had to be found to fill there roles. the Management would gossip about other staff members, I later found out that a member of our team found out that there were gossiping about her behind, they soon left.
Pros
good company outtings, great co- workers
Cons
horrible atmosphere

The employees working in the London offices are clearly passionate about their roles and work long and hard hours to produce the best outcomes for the company, a thriving environment in which one can only aspire to be a part of. Relationships across sectors, particularly on the trading floor are promising and there is a sense of real community and positivity.
Pros
Great cafeteria, excellent accessibility by public transport

Most areas of the company are brilliant, most want to see you succeed, however there are some that will try to stunt your progress as they have taken a disliking to you, I have seen this with other staff members not being offered roles which they were promised etc.

Working in an extremely professional environment it was key to be able to work alongside senior management as well as with contractors. Working without direction to ensure all support, hard and soft services ran smoothly at all times. All members of the team worked flexibly and with excellent rapport. I particularly enjoyed the variance of tasks within the role.
Pros
excellent working environment
Cons
Long commute
