I have been working at Nexans full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
There are a lot of good people working here and generally speaking it is fun and supportive. We have good products and market share and better than average benefits and pay compared to other businesses in the area.Cons
The corporate management is in France which adds red tape and stupid decisions on occasion. We've weathered one of those bad decisions just last year (which was our worst in the past 10), and are now coming back pretty well.
I'd also say the work-life balance isn't great. Other places give better compensation time, time off, flexible time, and ability to work from home than Nexans.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Leave more control to local businesses and plants instead of trying to dictate from the top.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
