Immature organization for a company this size.

Senior Manager (Current Employee)

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

ProsHighly innovative company with great strategic vision and extremely talented people. Excellent product and technology.

ConsVery immature sales organization that doesn't know how to recruit or retain top sales talent. Culturally insensitive and arrogant corporate culture that forces french talking points that do not translate internationally. Marketing and branding organization is a joke. Executive committee is petty, immature, arrogant and disconnected with the tactical realities of running a business this size.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
