Dexia Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Dexia N.V./S.A., also referred to as the Dexia Group, was a Franco-Belgian financial institution active in public finance, providing retail and commercial banking services to individuals and SMEs, asset management, and insurance; with headquarters in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, Brussels. The company had about 35,200 members of staff and a core shareholders' equity of €19.2 billion, as of 31 December 2010, and provided governments and local public finance operators with banking and other financial services. Asset Management and Services provided asset management, investor, and insurance services, in particular to clients of the two other business lines.
According to researchof Netwerk Vlaanderen Dexia in 2005 together with AXA, Fortis, ING, and KBC invested over €6.6 billion in companies that were involved in human rights violations. The companies and projects in which banks invest are controversial because of their support for dictatorial regimes, forced displacements, and forced labor. The criticism concerns among others investments in a gas pipeline in Myanmar and the BTC pipeline through Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. In 2005 Dexia announced a new policy concerning the weapons industry. Companies involved in the production of anti-personnel mines will be completely barred from banking services. For investment funds, there is no limitation of investments in the weapons industry.
Analyste (Former Employee) says"Je ne recommande pas cette entreprise pour les embauchés en CDD, les étrangers ayant un titre de séjour, les stagiaires, les plus jeunes en général, qui sont la variable d'ajustement car leur statut ne les protège pas. Ils ne sont pas récompensés d'avoir rejoint cette entreprise en situation de démantèlement. Cons: Salaires, abus sur les juniors, CDD et les étrangers en titre de séjour"

Current Employee - Pee-On says"I have been working at Dexia full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Below market-rate pay. By far, the most incompetent, inept management I have come across in my career, thanks to the top-heavy organizational design preferred by the French. Bureaucracy and red tape prevent real work and innovation from occuring. Seriously, do not waste your time at this place. Also, please disregard the completely biased and factually incorrect review posted in February 2014 by senior management (yes, we know who you are). Ask any current or former employee, and they will undoubtedly tell you that joining Dexia was the biggest mistake of their career (unless they are French)."
Former Employee - Assistant Vice President says"I worked at Dexia full-time for more than a year Cons: Lack of motivation. Management . This place deserves the recognition as the worst run place."

Assistant Vice President says"I have been working at Dexia Cons: Lack of motivation and initiative among many of the worker bees. No real innovation here. IT organization is completely inept, using technologies long considered out-of-date at any other "real" bank. Typical French politics. if you speak the language, you might advance a bit faster than a non-French speaker."
