    Pros

    A lot of great people, a good place to learn and grow, very good benefits for the USA

    Cons

    It's clear that some people are "in", some people are "out": it's not clear how that happens. Basically a complete lack of transparency: bonus, promotions, who gets involved in presales or interesting projects.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with evaluations and processes even if it means vexing old timers, take more chances with people who've never been tried

    Pros

    -> Leading company expanding = more career opportunities
    -> Good salaries for Paris
    -> Good and smart people working there

    Cons

    -> Turnover is kind of high for the past two years, this kind of position is not very appealing for bright young graduates
    -> If you don't have a strong interest for IT stuffs, the job can seem very unsexy
    -> HR tell during the interview that it will be easy to have internal mobility abroad after 2 years which is false

    Advice to Management

    -> Allow and favor abroad mobility

    Pros

    Very good compensation package, it would be difficult to find better in Paris for the same job.
    Well located in Paris.
    Talented people.
    Top management people are pretty smart and humble.
    Developpers are well considered.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not very good.
    Tasks as a software engineer might not be very creative: depending on your team, you might have to deal with a lot of legacy code written decades ago and very poorly designed.
    Fair amount of stress: usually new features have to be shipped pretty fast which obviously affects the quality.
    Globally, poor passion for technical expertice.
    Career development plan almost non existent.
