    Pros

    Best place to do CS research in France. Most teams are very strong. Infrastructure is good. Lots of vacation days (no less than 5 full weeks per year).

    Cons

    Strong separation between permanent and temporary (interns, PhD students, post-docs) staff.
    Postdocs are typically considered as apprentices (kind of senior PhD students) rather than fully-fledged researchers.
    Pay is very low: you get on hands ~80% of the salary amount and from this you have to pay the taxes at the end of year (the sum varies, but approx. around one monthly salary). No supplemental vacation money.
    People (administrative or research) never ask for your feedback. Just don't care to even consider to improve something. Basically, it is a mix of arrogance and insouciance.
    Many of research staff have quite poor English skills (i.e., have troubles with making even a simple talk about their own work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attract more foreigners as team/project leaders. Other than that, can't say as not really familiar with French research system.
