    I have been working at Vivendi

    Pros

    No one yells at you...and that's about it. Casual dress and not too much argument when you need to take vacation are also appreciated.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between execs and underlings is legendary. A lot of flip flopping between the execs makes it nearly impossible to get anything done because no decisions can ever be made. No raises, no promotions, It seems that the company feels as a whole that we should feel grateful just to have jobs and should stop complaining. They take advantage of the lower level people on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly. Don't promise things that you aren't going to deliver on.
