BNP Paribas has some irate junior mistmakers on its hands.

"In addition to variousother recent offenses, BNP has promoted a very small number of juniors. There are MANY 4th year associates, 4th year analysts that didn't receive a title change. The bank is sending a clear message that it does not care about its junior employees. They don't pay, don't promote, they just don't care."

Bonus Watch '12: BNP Paribas Employees Have More Grievances To Air

From the front lines: "Your BNP bonus story from earlier today missed the part that has BNP employees really rattled. The 4th and final deferred payment of the 2008 "retention bonus" was not paid out. It covered most employees who were here in 2008 and was pulled back because the bank fixed income department didn't cover ROE target. We were told on Feb 22 that we did not reach the 14.5 % target. ROE calculations are not clean and employees (including Sr. Management) asked to see exactly what was included in the calculation. The bank refused. Despite frequent attempts they're adamant about not releasing ROE calculations and acknowledged that we had 2.8 BB € write down on Greece. The CMIP plan covered hundreds of BNP employees. Clawbacks make sense but it's never happened on such a wide scale with so little information. What does 2008 comp have to do with the 2012 European crisis? Absolutely was like stealing."
