    Pros

    They are rather reactive for hiring once they have an open position which matches with your profile.

    Promesses, que de promesses... mais balancées dans le vent. Promises, promises… but left dangling in the wind

    Pros

    L'entreprise est grande et possède des bureaux dans de nombreuses villes à travers le monde.

    The company is big and has offices in many cities around the world.

    Cons

    Cela varie sans doute d'un bureau à l'autre, mais pour moi, le suivi des clients et de l'avancement du travail semble manquant: les réactions des clients étaient sporadiques et ont requis beaucoup d'appels et de messages pour obtenir une réponse d'un sens ou de l'autre.

    This undoubtedly varies from office to office, but for me, the follow-up on job leads and clients seems lacking: feedback has been sporadic and has required a lot of calling and leaving messages to get an answer one way or the other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quand vous dites à quelqu'un que vous allez le recontacter « bientôt », contactez-le *bientôt* s'il vous plaît.

    When you tell someone you'll get back to them "soon," please get back to them *soon*.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choisissez vos managers en ne prenant pas seulement en compte les résultats à court terme, mais en considérant aussi toutes les pertes financières invisibles qu'ils peuvent causer quand vous les évaluez.

    Choose your managers not only on their short term business results or take ALSO into account all the invisible financial losses they do when evaluating them.
