    I worked at Orange

    Pros

    FT in North America was a great place to work because management really seemed to be appreciative of the talent that they had on board.

    Cons

    While FT in North America, New York office was a really wonderful place to work, unfortunately, the New York office has closed. Too bad!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FT in North America was a really, really great place to work. At some point in the future, it could make sense to reconsider re-opening a New York office.

    I have been working at Orange

    Pros

    Orange is a global company, very innovative we work on cutting edge technology. Very confortable atmosphere to work in. The lab has a unique history and now appears to be more insightful about the skillsets that are needed to become a world reknowned lab and they are moving to that end.

    They are a very stable company and are still on track for paying bonuses and merit increases which is very positive since many companies doing this economic down turn cannot financially afford to do this.

    Cons

    France Telecom does offer mobility and career advancement but you have to be willing to move to Europe.

    Getting approvals from the parent company in France can be timely and unfortunately we all have to suffer because of the timeliness issue which is quite normal for companies who have there parent company in another country..

    Some of the downsides are that many of the employees there have worked there for some time and have adopted very negative demotivating attitudes that unfortunately effect the morale of others..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with staff by having more frequent meetings

    I have been working at Orange part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission is amazing!! some months i can make double my salary so that was pretty awesome. Staff who work there go through extensive interviewing so generally everyone is pretty cool. People are fun to talk to on the fun. Management are generally pretty cool.

    Cons

    Assistant managers are power hungry, they really like letting you know they're higher than you. Targets are constantly used to kick people out the company. They always get increased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being idiots and employing awful ATL's (assistant team leaders).
