    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.

    A pretty good contractor agency

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at AKKA Technologies

    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 ManagementAdvice

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