    Pros

    -Ok work hours
    -Ok colleagues
    -Not demanding (in terms of level)

    Cons

    -Management pretends to know what they are doing very seriously but basically it is going nowhere
    -promotions are almost inexistent, career management is non existent
    -No one will either teach you anything, you will contribute most until you dry up
    -rigid silo structure with same 10 initial friends ruling over 10,000 employees
    -poor level in analytics
    -obsession with maintaining high profit margin at 30% at the expense of investments, trainings, employees benefits, systems

    Advice to Management

    open up the capital for takeover - no one really cares what you say and it impacts thousands of people - what you could do with a startup driven by large accounts doesn't cut it anymore as a corporation

    Pros

    DS is een bedrijf waar hoogstaand technisch werk wordt verricht. Je komt met veel internationale klanten in aanraking. je leert ontzettend veel en binnen een aanzienlijke periode ben je een specialist op je vakgebied. Er heest een relaxe sfeer en de collega's zijn zeer behulpzaam.

    Cons

    Voor techniesh werk zijn er weinig carriere mogelijkheden. De projecten zijn kort en intesief, waar je als consultent wordt ingezet als klanten hun complexe problemen niet kunnen oplossen. Dit geeft weinig gevoel, betrokkenheid en voldoening.

    Advice to Management

    Er wordt veel aandacht geschonken aan de sales medewerkers, terwijl de technici vaak het meeste werk verrichten. Betere carrieremogelijkheden voor technici kan het bedrijf interessanter maken voor hoog opgeleid technisch personeel.

    Pros

    Good work / life balance.
    It is an international company where you can get international projects.
    Nice campus : fitness, forest where you can do you jogging, space

    Cons

    In Paris Suburb and not directly linked by rail (metro, RER)
    Processes and tools are sometimes hard to understand & apply.

    Advice to Management

    Even if we are going through a lot of changes with the strategical marketing deployment that occurred in 2012, I think the management should share more the vision they have for the Company.

    Pros

    Job description can be challenged. You can take part in side projects easily provided you have the time.
    Topics are usually interesting.
    Philosophy and vision are nice!

    Cons

    Poor execution. Way too much politics! I doubt top management is aware of how much politics lie beneath them.
    DS is an typical example of a company that could not scale. Medium and top management still act as a small company without scalable process or solution (problem-solving usually involve top level executives buy-up for everything).

    Advice to Management

    Hire people in executive position with extensive experience from outside the company and without any tie to current top and medium management. This I hope will demonstrate the urgent need to transform the company.

    Pros

    A lot of smart people. Dassualt is into everything. So there is lot of flexibility to choose career path.
    You really can understand the design world by being in this company

    Cons

    The company has grown too big. Too much bureaucracy. The culture has become sales heavy.
    It does not promote R&D ingenuity.

    Pros

    Company on first wave of innovation, developing quickly especially in support areas. Regional management getting more authority and responsibilities.

    Cons

    Concentrating all resources in Euromed leading country (Italy). Remote employers lack upper management care and attention. New offerings introduction pace too quick for partner ecosystem to digest and customer to understand values and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    In order to obtain an organic growth and diversification local resources from the countries should be involved. Managing from more than 1500 km away does not allow informed decisions.
