Zero deal-flow, no exit opportunities, very long hours working on no-sense pitches like the Commerzbank-Google merger. The sense of my answer does not change: go somewhere else.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

Their NY office loses money lol so you can see the deal flow. Only Lev Fin is even remotely decent for IB and even then it doesn't compare to the MM firms. Your best exit opps will come if you plan to move to France. In the US the bank has no name.

They don't have any deals or exit ops that I know of. This makes sense as there are no French tech/media company conglomerates with easy cross border sell side opportunities like a japanese or german shop would have.

I don't even know what space they live in in the US. Like, I see allocations to a lot of F500 TMT names but Socgen is never tier 1, which means they have limited access to management. Unless they are middle market, in which case, I have no idea.

Some of the French tech / media conglomerates you are forgetting about:

Vivendi (Universal Music, Dailymotion, Gameloft, Telecom Italia), Altice (Altice USA, SFR, MEO), Orange (France, Spain, Belgium, Poland, Slovakia, Romania), Sage, Dassault Systemes, Atos, Ubisoft?

I'm not defending France btw - I'm not French. I know that their TMT team used to be considered fairly strong in Europe (with a caveat that it was a bit too French) so people left to JPM, Barclays, Citi.

I am however curious what is happening to it now. Would be grateful if someone who is based in Europe could share.
