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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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.
