    Pros

    The people that work at Orange Business Services are very pleasant to work with. The culture is very professional, and you will be able to work with wonderful people from all over the world. Since everyone is spread so thin, you will have the opportunity to work on many (many) different projects.

    Cons

    The management is not progressive enough. The company's talent is squandered. The best people stay until they cannot take it anymore and then leave. People in Paris (HQ) get promoted regularly (whether they are qualified to do the job or not) while the rest of the world stays behind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting all of the French people into management roles for which they are not qualified for and that they have to learn on the job. Look outside the organization to find qualified, smart people to lead the company.

    Pros

    Co workers were all a great bunch of people and working alongside them was a pleasure.
    The office is close to the Ferry Building and access to public transportation and restaurants is great.

    Cons

    The HR department is difficult to work with and employees often feel afraid to speak their minds.
    The level of benefits such as in office supplied meals, after work get togethers and such is not at the same level as other tech firms. In fact it is mostly nonexistent. The management is old school, so one best be prepared to work from 8:30AM to 5:30PM, whether it is the most efficient manner for the company and employee or not.

    Advice to Management

    Step into the 21sit century with regard to management style and overhaul the HR department to make it more employee friendly.

    Pros

    Working for the public interest - serving the community at large and getting paid for it

    Cons

    Political
    People who are promoted aren't necessarily the most qualified - mostly followers instead of true leaders

    Majority of those in leadership positions wouldn't necessarily be qualified in the private sector (ex. Raising to the ranks as a mail room clerk to bring a manager - most managers at Orange County only have a high school diploma)

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent - do not micromanage - trust the professionals working for you.

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits with lots of time off. Most people get to work from home at least a couple of times a week. I didn't experience any micromanaging. There is a lot training opportunity. It's an international company, so you work with people from all over the world. There are great people at the company, most who have been there for many years.

    Cons

    The company is struggling to compete price-wise and services-wise. AT&T can offer cheaper network services than Orange can in the U.S. The bigger profits are made off of services on top of network, such as VoIP, Video Conferencing, Cloud, etc. While Orange offers these products, mostly through partnerships with other companies, they have done a poor job of training on them, integrating them into tools for implementation and supporting sales and account teams to sell these products. The company is laying off most of its sales support and implementation teams and is moving it to India and Brazil to save costs, which is hurting morale and weakening service delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a super tool that centralizes all the quoting, ordering and implementation processes into one place. Integrate the technical documentation into this super tool, as well. Move away from centralized implementation and sales support and create regional Sales and implementation teams that work together. Move more quickly to selling additional services, especially Cloud, to boost revenue margin.
