Most Helpful Critical Review

Former employee - Senior Vice President

As a foreign bank, management was highly centralized. Senior managers in Paris had to be called upon for the most decisions, oftimes, as a detriment to efficiency and client needs. The New York bank, a profitable operation for the bank should have more autonomy. There was no real effort to encourage women and minorities as professional investment bankers -- no mentoring programs or buy-in from senior management to increase abysmally low numbers.

Current employee - Vice President

I am a new employee of the bank, and i am not certain yet what i would change. I am hearing that since it's a French bank, that they do not promote to senior positions unless you are French. But time will tell.

Former employee - Senior Vice President

One should know that decision making is highly centralized -- in Paris.

Former employee - Senior Vice President

The culture was open and quite cerebral -- I worked in the equity derivatives group -- so, I worked with highly skilled and talented professionals.

Current employee - Managing Director

Yes, I would recommend to a friend. Opportunities are limited at the top despite encouragement by management on mobility. Bumped up against "French" ceiling without success.

Current employee - Managing Director

Emphasis now on cost. Strategic initiatives or services will be defined by low cost location and or providers. Quality is being sacrificed due regulatory squeeze.

Current employee - Managing Director

Francaise. Conservative. Decision making is by concensus and slow. Bright individuals and very quantitative. Lacking in service but strong product.
