    Pros

    You can recommend this company to your worst enemies.

    Cons

    If your mission is over they will be your worst enemy - even your manager. They will chantage you to force you to sign papers with Rupture Conventionelle. They do not give any supoort on nothing.

    Pros

    Good first experience for autonomous people.

    Cons

    Poor structure, lack of communication, crisis management, risk averse. The management want to evolve as a major player but don't pay attention to the market.

    Advice to Management

    Open your mind and listen to your consultants. Review your objectives, don't reject the fault on the consultants.

    Pros

    Akka (Sophia Agency) presents the advantage to have a good portfolio, either in ASIC design (TI, ST-Ericsson, etc.), SI (Amadeus, Air France, etc) and spatial (Thales Alenia Space) which enables contractor to move their competency from a domain to another

    Cons

    Downsides from AKKA would be like all contractor agencies that they put a lot of pressure on people that loses their mission due to crisis and ask for geographical mobility

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is very well defined in AKKA but they should also count on their task force to find new missions and reward us.
