    I worked at BNP Paribas Securities Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment/good well being perks.
    Everyone was easy to talk to and get along with.
    Easy going.
    Leave at 5pm.

    Cons

    Promised there is opportunity to relocate offices within the company, but when push came to shove this was not possible.

    Advice to Management

    Create better opportunities for movement - especially when they realise that the person is worth keeping.

    I worked at BNP Paribas Securities Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with some amazing people who know their stuff. Cross communication between locations is brilliant for expertise sharing.

    Cons

    Job security- in the time I was there a lot of people were let go after 10 years, bonuses and raises are slim to none with all bad news being "Paris' fault"

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding behind Head Office when doling out bad news, you're teams might not like the news but at least they will respect you for telling them like a manager.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, good pay for a graduate, nine-to-five means nine-to-five, continued learning and training

    Cons

    No clear path forward within the company, perhaps this is more down to the area of Fund Administration, which I believe will be nearly wholly computerised over the coming years.

    Advice to Management

    Once you make a decision to reallocate a member of staff to a role, stick to the decision, indecision breeds contempt

    Pros

    Health benefits, comfortable workplace, overall nice teams to integrate into, flexibility and understanding.

    Consider attributing tasks to specific members of a team instead of asking ten different things that only complicates everything.
