Overall Reviews at Société Générale

Finance Product Manager | New York, NY | Mar 6, 2020
Very Cordial and Friendly
SocGen is a nice place to meet people from various countries (lots of French and other Europeans), as well as folks from here in the US. It's a good place to learn more about Securities and how each team plays a role in Finance.
Senior Vice President | New York, NY | Jul 11, 2019
Rather not
Rather not write a review since my situation is sensitive. Glassdoor can provide a pretty good picture of Societe Generale. The company is going through a massive change in the upcoming years.
Investment Banking Analyst | New York, NY | Oct 14, 2019
Great traders/salespeople - HR is not good
Refer to title - they marketed the internship as rotational and it just blatantly wasn't. Also they only hired about 1/3 of the interns so I'm not sure what the point of hiring so many people was...huge shout out to the prime sales team, g unit
Vice President | New York, NY | Jun 11, 2018
Good place to work
a typical day at work is overseeing other teams because most of the production has been outsourced. Management is laid back and the work place culture is a mixture of French and American. The hardest part of the job is trying to get things done
Vice President of Client Services | New York, NY | Aug 4, 2019
Really depends on what group you work in. You may or may not learn much depending on which group you are part of. Good opportunities of rotating around.
Head of Sales | New York, NY | Jun 10, 2019
Management and culture were challenging
After having been with GE Capital for over 17 years, I found it difficult to enter a French Investment Bank culture and be a minority of the language and culture. I found the experience on the Trading Floor to toughen me a bit and teach me more about the markets.
Director | Los Angeles, CA | Aug 17, 2018
International Opportunities
Competitive working environment however leadership works to personally know all employees in their organization, offers personal development opportunities as well as international assignment opportunities
ConsAdvancement is difficult
Client Services | New York, NY | Mar 25, 2020
Experienced in both execution and clearing of equity equity options and futures products
Team player with a great attitude and reputation with not only colleagues but clients whom I covered. First touch for all client issues, for example, issues with client sheets, handling trade breaks, corporate actions, dividends and cash transactions for all clients to name a few of the job responsibilities.
Product Owner | Paris, TX | Aug 30, 2018
Good work life Balance
SG provides a Good work life balance. It has great number of Annual leaves and the employees are encouraged to utilize their leaves. However, the company is too French centric and lacks Global approach. Hard work is not recognized and pay is less
ProsAnnual leaves
ConsManagement is too slow, Bad Project Management, less Recognition, Bad Salary
Foreign Exchange Trader | New York, NY | Jan 16, 2020
Worked with great people..
A good place to work with decent benefits. IT infrastructure was pretty good. Way too many managers - so its difficult to know who to go to if you want to raise an issue. Too much micro managing day to day activities.
