    Very interesting technologies. Nice package. Well driven company.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Vélizy-Villacoublay (France)

    Pros- Cutting edge technologies.
    - Very talented employees. Someone within the company always have answers for your technical questions.
    - Rather quickly growing company even 25 years after its creation. Head management seems to have been making the right decisions.
    - Possibility to evolve within the company.
    - Good package.
    - Competitive salary (at the beginning).

    Cons- Low salary increase
    - Even if the directors make the rigt decisions, they hardly communicate on them. Employees get only a vague idea of the objectives. Moreover, priorities often change and some project are being dropped wihout any previous notice.
    - Very bad communication with HR. They do their job OK, but reaching or asking for something non conventional is just a nightmare.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more with your employees about the company objectives. Improve communication with HR. Give more financial rewards to keep people motivation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Nice experience: Diversity of experiences and freedom

    Product Manager (Former Employee)
    Vélizy-Villacoublay (France)

    Pros- Strong engineering culture; nice ambiance
    - Fun and appealing product
    - Freedom
    - Many opportunities: expatriations, jobs, industry and client exposure, etc

    Cons- Clear disconnect between high and middle mgt making your job delicate at times
    - Difficulties to set and communicate a clear strategy; company is torn between leading innovation/business tranformation and satisfying clients' needs pragmatically
    - Heavier and heavier processes hampering technological and business agility; people playing and hiding behind them; no clear accountability and responsibility
    - So-so compensation
    - Credential and network will make your career easier: coming out of the right school and knowing top management will ease your journey even if you excel in mediocrity

    Advice to Senior Management- Set up clear directions and communicate them clearly
    - Recover a customer-centric attitude, truth is always there
    - Put in place the right monitoring and accountability scheme to promote rational and educated decisions and to reward your employees based on factual results
