    I worked at France Telecom

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at France Telecom in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    Applied via email.

    First call with HR lasted 15 minutes. Tested mostly English knowledge and asked few administrative questions. A formality.

    Then had to prepare 2 case studies about 2 topics related to recent US market developments. Each case studies was to be completed by the next day.

    Debriefing about the case studies on call with hiring manager and his boss: intense Q&A session. It is make or break time. This lasted 90 minutes

    FInally another director will interview you (behavorial mostly).
