    I have been working at GFI Informatique

    Pros

    A lot of varied work. I can't complain about repetition after 3+ years.

    Cons

    Depends on the projects and clients. It wouldn't surprise me they put you in underestimated projects where in the end you'll be working endless hours including weekends with a ridiculous compensation for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Estipulate real compensations for those who give up their personal life trying to push the projects forward.

    Current Employee - Programmer

    I have been working at GFI Informatique

    Pros

    wide variety of work, professional office, respectful staff, modern office, good base salary, stable middle management. modern equipment, laptops, cell phones, unimpeeded internet access, easy access to transit, close to post secondary institutions, some educational assistance

    Cons

    complex work, lack of understanding of work complexity by senior management, poor benefits, language barrier, frequent changes in ownership, long work hours, short vacation time, time sheets, senior management makes workers feel that they are machines there to do a job not as individuals with individual needs and concerns. There are few perks for line staff, no subsidy of sports tickets, no arts programme, maternity limited to what is required by government

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give all the employees a sense of ownership, by actually giving them ownership, either directly, or via profit sharing.

    C'est une entreprise de sous-traitance, qu'est-ce que vous attendez ? It's an outsourcing company, what would You expect?

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    C'est une entreprise de sous-traitance avec ses hauts et ses bas. Le salaire arrive toujours à temps. Des gens sympas travaillent à Sophia Antipolis (pas les managers malheureusement), et à un moment ils avaient un très bon directeur d'agence. De ces jour

    It's an outsourcing company with all it's ups and downs. Pay would always arrive on time. Some nice people worked there in Sophia Antipolis (not among managers sadly), and at some point they had a really good agency director. These days it's just a company like any other in this business I guess. Not any better, not much worse either. On the upside I could probably mention that they really used to help foreigners a lot in moving their lives to France.

    Cons

    C'est une firme de sous-traitance donc ils promettent monts et merveilles pour vous faire signer le contrat. Regardez quelques épisodes de «42ème étage» pour voir comment çà se passe en France. Tout est vrai. Une fois que vous êtes en CDI, vous avez une période de préavis de 3 mois directement, et vous n'allez certainement pas voir votre salaire suivre l'inflation, sans parler d'augmentation. Egalement, votre salaire ne dépend pas de vos résultats ou du feedback des clients. Oubliez les bonus et autres choses en plus du salaire, vous aurez peut-être un cadeau pour noël...d'une valeur de 50 euros.

    It's an outsourcing firm so they'll promise you silver mountains to have You sign the contract. See some episodes of "42'ème etage" to understand how they roll in France. All true. Once You're on CDI You have 3 months notice period straight away, and You likey won't even see your salary follow inflation, let alone show some real signs of increase. Also, in no way does your salary depend on Your work's results or customer's feedback. Forget bonuses and other things outside basic pay, you may get a gift for Christmas though... in the price range of 50 euros.

    Pros

    Un bon job pour les fainéants, familles avec enfants ou en pré-retraite. Si vous n'avez pas de grandes attentes, ça devrait aller.

    A good job for lazy people, with kids or before retirement. If you do not expect to much it should be ok.

    Cons

    Manque d'entraînement. Extrêmement difficile d'obtenir une augmentation. Et ça n'a pas de relation avec votre performance. L'entreprise ne comprend pas ses employés.

    Lack of trainings. Extremely difficult to get a rise. And is not related to your performance. Company do not understand it's employees.
