    I have been working at Dassault Systemes as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is great. I have easy access to my manager and even the director. The company culture is an excellent fit for me; I enjoy the work environment in tech companies. It is calm for the most part, but can be fast-paced if needed.

    Cons

    Sometimes, there can be no work to do, or the work is not challenging enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, really.

    Pros

    OK Benefits, you can work virtual if you need to. quirky perks in the benefits package. free coffee. Lots of time off, but be careful of using in large blocks of time. you'll be swamped with work when you return

    Cons

    Little to no advancement. low pay. no personal growth. Internal policy don't work well with partners.
    cross train people. It doesn't hurt to have more than 1 person able to complete tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let good talent go to waste. Put a stop to inclusive leadership. If an employee is in control of their career at Dassault, include them in the decisions that affect the success of their work. Management agendas should be to promote ALL employees.

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

    Pros

    - Company produces great products and services
    - Good people to work with
    - Good health benefits
    - Company is striving to be a "Great Place to Work"

    Cons

    - Poor work/life balance
    - Very small yearly pay increases, if any at all
    - Very few opportunities to move up, and when they are given it is given to the manager's "pets"
    - Future is somewhat uncertain because opportunities for the Americas may be limited because France calls all the shots and our opportunities in the future is yet to be known
    - Trying to take vacation time is difficult because it is often denied or management waits until the very last minute to let you know if you can take it
    - You have to use up most or all of your vacation time at times when it is not good for you, because your manager wants you to use up your time and not carry over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Share your vision with employees and let them know that they will be an integral part of future plans
    - Crack down on managers that are preventing employee satisfaction with out dated management styles
    - Give better yearly raises

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

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent and the technical people are fun and personable. Depending on the office, the social environment can be really nice (Woodland Hills, CA and Auburn Hills, MI stand out in particular). Also, the CEO is very inspiring - the vision the company is striving for is a strong motivating factor.

    Cons

    Despite the advantages, the environment is highly political - promotion is on the who-you-know basis rather than on competence or professionalism. Really good people are stuck for years is underpaid, undervalued positions with little possibility of moving up.
