    I worked at Dassault Systemes as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Lot's of team based projects
    - Open environment where you can share your ideas
    - Fun and enthusiastic people
    - Very cool new office space

    Cons

    It was sometimes easy too fall back on work because there isn't particularly any deadline I had to meet. I had to stay self-motivated which turned out to be not so difficult because the company did cool stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being the fun and helpful people you are

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

    Pros

    The company has an interesting and ambitious vision.
    A lot of very smart people working all over the company.
    The company is growing, acquiring new companies and technologies.

    Cons

    Higher management is erratic. High level of pressure at all levels.
    Very little organic growth (hard to get new hires where needed)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your employees, and make sure to keep your senior employees happy (they are key to your success in delivering class-leading products)

    I worked at Dassault Systemes

    Pros

    You can work there and surf the web all day but who wants to do that?

    Cons

    First of all, they sell vaporware. Their product was a joke. They can show some great powerpoint slides about how it should work. Entitlement mentality was rampant in employees a lot of who are ex IBMers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management lives in an Ivory tower and was totally out of touch with what was going on in the company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful new Boston HQ
    Great People
    Great Benefits
    Relaxed Atmosphere
    Open door policy with most executives

    Cons

    TERRIBLE, UNSUPPORTIVE HR STAFF

    Compensation varies across the brands - the guy sitting next to you doing the same job will earn significantly more because he is part of a different legal entity.

    Awful compensation for the Boston area....negotiate strong up front because no matter how far up the ladder you go, HR will not support a bump in compensation.

    Many of the SolidWorks people think they are better than the rest of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying your US employees appropriately.
    Watch what the HR business partners are doing, they should not be running the show.
    Tell the SolidWorks people in the US to stop crying (or leave) it is destroying the culture/morale.

    Pros

    Most of the management team is knowledgeable about the products and are technically competent. Technical skills are valued and there are opportunites to grow.

    Cons

    With growth there is the challenge of integrating new people and companies. They are still working on integrating the different teams and getting the expanding product line integrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work on how to fully integrate remote workers and geographically dispersed teams.

    Pros

    - Great Products
    - Great Customers
    - Progressive Attitude and Atmosphere
    - Well funded, managed, and controlled.

    Cons

    - U.S. opportunity ceiling seems 'capped' at the border.
    - Communication between vision and execution is poor and untimely.
    - Management and execution processes is ignored by all above the "trenches".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a execution process and schedule you are willing to follow. It will go a long way to communicating obtainable expectations, reducing unnecessary stress, and improving productivity.
