    Pros

    Very good products! Breathtaking Technology! Very focused and enthusiastic CEO.

    Cons

    It seems to me that the company doesn't care about Latin America. All the people hired for the management positions are not from the area, and most of them got a very poor view over the solution and the market. There are no sales strategies and I always felt like a firemen. No career development, most of the talents (90%) from the technical area left the company, because they didn't agree to how things are managed. There are two Dassault Systèmes, one outside LA and another in LA. Bad work environment and no communication between sales and technical areas. In 5 years never saw a strategy coming from the management team. Looks like a family company with no focus.

    Advice to Management

    Coach Training. Hire new people from the field to the management positions.

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First few rounds with a test looked good..later hours of waiting and waiting will make you down.

    Cons

    Small very compact building in Bangalore, India, Parking problems, many had resigned already so they asked are you here for interviews? Why? For what? I was strangely surprised. They said eventually you will leave anyway so why join here. I did observe 2 cockroaches on the floor and near my chair. Very uneasy to see all that around age old cubicles...:(

    Advice to Management

    Everything is there in front of their eyes, why advice anyone?

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Products are very good with superior level of technology and state of the art. World Wide acting, financially solid, large company.

    Cons

    Too much managers in relation to productive staff. Incredible inefficient complex pyramidal, nearly military, typical French, management structure. No growth nor working career development plan. Nearly no salary increase possible. To many youngsters and MBAs for a technical orientated company and clients. No developed service structure for post sales, service and consulting. No patience for big business. Bad work environment and communication. Leak of strategy break down. Many good and experienced people are leaving the company as there is hardly a way to internally contribute with improvements in strategy and operations. Looks like a family company with no focus. Specially in Latin America management is a closed friends club taking things personal, not professional.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new managers all 6 months. Get the internal experienced staff into leadership as they are really waiting for it. Create career plans and keep to them. Train your technical staff as there are no resources on the short time market with the experience and quality needed. Give guidance to the younger and don’t leave them alone to later complain about them. Go for long term growth and not for the short money. Have a correct salary growth plan related to experience value and not only job title and try to keep experienced experts on board and available. Come back to reality and leave your bubble.

    Please hire trainees only when you really need them. Don't hire talented people out of good colleges and make them do nothing and get rid of them after the contract ends. Please think before you hire. yours Sincerely, All the trainees you hired in (2013-14) campus drive.

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Systems and Data are EXTREMELY well organized.

    Cons

    Dassault have a SERIOUS issue with Senior Management (at least in LATAM). People without absolutely no skills whatsoever to manage a company are solidified on their positions. It is VERY common to see competent people getting fired or leaving before reaching 1 year in the house. People are constantely haressed on their positions and activities. People are stimulated to be offensive and management is CONSTANTELY spreading gossips to turn departments against each other.

    Advice to Management

    Change the Managing Director and the BT Director for the region immediately. Let HR people do their job.

    Pros

    Chance to learn CAD/CAM/CAE if you are interested in. Got some training in this domain.

    Cons

    If you work there more than 4 years, you don't have chance to find job in other IT domain, for few skill you learned can be transferred.

    Advice to Management

    If the company don't make a technology evolution, there won't be a single license to be sold in near future. There are tons of new emerged company which adopt newest platform will share 3D market
