    Working for Vinci is getting involved in a constellation of companies with a great strike force.

    I have been working at Vinci full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can get great responsabilities even if you have few experience.

    Cons

    Typical French group : too many decision takers, few decisions...
    It's possible having initiatives in Vinci, as long as you don't expect to see them employed.
    There is a lack of formating : noone has the sensation of being part of one group except of a constellation of small companies forced to live together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear and assumed Real Estate Strategy remains to be built...

    I worked at Vinci as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - A lot of people are willing to help you learn
    - As an intern, work-life balance is easily manageable
    - Competitive salary/benefits as an intern
    - Eager and motivated candidates are easily scouted

    Cons

    - Lack of proper specific mentoring
    - Just another cog in the system
    - Politics at upper management level inevitably trickles down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Young recruits are more often than not willing to put in the extra effort - management should channel that by nurturing new talent and showing they do care (follow up, mid internship assessment, career orientation interviews...)

    Pros

    Team work is the law for all involved in.
    High company references level gives it high opportunities to carry out exciting construction projects.
    Community of VCGP employees is gravitating arround the world from a project to another, reinforcing company strength by its 'embedded network'.

    Cons

    Free time consuming.
    Better challenge positions at competitor's.
    Difficult balance between private and professional life
    Too much independance may lead to engage ourself (and others) on wrong path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of what is being learned by junior management, as current juniors are tomorrow's seniors.
    This is the best, most efficient and affordable way to elevate company skills to undertake challenging projects.

    Pros

    Une très bonne politique d'entreprise qui fait la part belle à l'humain.

    Cons

    Les salaires pour les jeunes embauchés ne sont pas élevés et les augmentations ne sont pas non plus conséquentes. Une forte dépendance aux actionnaires également

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ne pas laisser partir les jeunes qui sont lassés de "trimer" pendant quelques années sans voir leur salaire augmenter alors que les résultats sont là.

    Pros

    Les projets sont vraiment intéressants et la connaissance des employés est unique. Ils travaillent de façon professionnelle et vous devez creuser de plus en plus profondément dans les fondations. Vous ne pouvez pas sortir de là sans savoir presque tout su

    The projects are really interesting and the employees' knowledge is unique. They work in a Professional way and you get to delve deeper and deeper into construction. You can't get out of it without knowing almost everything on construction practices.

    Cons

    Beaucoup de labeur et de dévouement. Cela ne vous conviendra pas à moins que vous n'appréciez réellement l'ingénierie civile et la construction.

    A lot of hardwork and dedication. You wouldn't fit there unless you really enjoy civil engineering and construction.

    Pros

    Les départements sont indépendants, les RH n'interfèrent pas avec le processus de recrutement (pour les postes peu élevés, je suppose)

    Departments are independent - HR department doesn't interfere in the recruitment process (I guess for low positions)
