    Pros

    As a company bull will give you the freedom to get the job done . Recently has renewed itself such that we are much better positioned in the market

    Cons

    Financial constraints on investment are in reality costing much more money than is being saved
    This results in delay as the required investment is not there when needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly - remember that you employed us because we are bright people so please treat us accordingly

    Current Employee - Sales Manager

    I have been working at Bull full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very dynamic, very strong in France, great colleagues

    Cons

    Lack of capable country managers in certain countries or regions. International Business Development Managers in charge of the country are based for upto 3 years maximum. This is very bad for local business.
    Bad planning and administration in setting sales objectives and goals.
    No Human Resources management available, no performance appraisals or grievance procedures.
    No country manager has ever dealt with HR, general management, people, etc. Their focus is only sales as they also have a personal sales objective.
    No mana

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should listen to its people based in the country as to how business should run and what are the challenges. They should be in a position to assist their teams in the best way and not question them or their abilities. People assigned abroad (out of France) should be focusing in their assignments and help colleagues in the country.
