    I worked at Exane full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hard working culture and focus on research. There are a lot of great research Analysts. Management has a clear mandate to provide best in class research.

    Cons

    A lot of change in research management in the past 3-4 years. There are cultural changes that are positives but there is a risk that focusing too much on marketing comes at the expense of research quality.

    Advice to Management

    Well done on the great progression over the past 10 years. Don't forget the roots of your sucess (culture and values). Continue to focus on quality.
