    Pros

    Great Minds & Employees who were always willing to help. Team always got along and ready to step in whenever anyone needed assistance, looked out for each other and wanted everyone to succeed.

    Cons

    I always felt micro managed; never felt comfortable. I didn't always feel like we had the tools to support our job / duties; however, started getting better towards the end of my career at W4L.

    Pros

    High learning curve and fast work pace. High contigent of Paris, France workers which makes creative and innovation development more fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to add value for employers

    Pros

    Great people with great skills. A good atmosphere in the Paris offices. Most of people are young and friendly.
    A nice startup spirit with fast and efficient tools and processes (agile...)
    It is interesting to work on products that relate to Facebook with a lot of big clients.
    Possibility to go to SF from time to time.
    Lot of events organized outside the office.

    Cons

    Management decisions are taken in SF and it is hard to follow up in Paris.
    Bad communication between these two teams.
    Strategic decisions of the company hard to understand and always changing.
    Lot of strong personalities slowing down the processes

    Advice to Management

    -Get a better communication between Paris and SF.
    -Take more feedback from the teams and actually make something about it
    - Have a leader in the Paris office

    Pros

    Équipe incroyable dans les deux bureaux. Extrêmement bonne ambiance pour travailler et pour apprendre. Tout le monde est toujours ouvert pour vous donner un coup de main en cas de besoin. On donne aux stagiaires beaucoup de responsabilités.

    Incredible team in both offices. Extremely great atmosphere to work in and to learn. Everyone is always open to give you a hand when needed. Interns are given lots of responsibilities.

    Cons

    Trop grande différence de rémunération entre Paris et les bureaux de SF. La société en demande trop aux salariés et ne se montre pas toujours reconnaissante.

    Too big of a difference in compensation between the Paris and the SF offices. The company takes too much from the employees and does not always give recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Prendre davantage en compte ce que les employés ont à dire. Etre plus à l'écoute des besoins des personnes d'avoir une vie en dehors du travail.

    Take more into account what the employees have to say. Be more understanding of the need for people to have a life outside of work.
