  1.  

    Serious company, various missions, but total lack of HR strategy

    I have been working at Devoteam

    Pros

    Salaries are relatively good.

    Cons

    Absolutely no career management. Consultants really feel used as a man-hour ressource and are often asked to work on missions on which they have absolutely no competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear about the reality of the company's activity when hiring. Do not hire business-oriented profiles because you are willing to land more "business / management consulting" missions. Change your positioning first, find missions, and hire then.

    I have been working at Devoteam full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Euh... You're paid on time?
    Training & certification
    There is a will to change (in Belgium)
    Smooth hiring process.

    Cons

    As a "consultant" you're just a cash generating resource that is - unfortunately - human.
    No long term vision. Actually, no vision at all...
    They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.
    The sole thing that counts is being billable, independent the ambitions, competenties, interests, ... of the person assigned on a mission. "take the mission, stay there as long as possible at the highest possible day rate and don't complain".

    It's nothing more than a bodyshopper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop selling "warm bodies" and start selling added value.
    The competencies and will are in the house, use them!

    Try to directly interact with your employees, it's fun and productive!

    Pros

    A very good job for lazy people who want to keep the same position for 3 to 4 years maximum

    Cons

    I am talking about DVS Morocco. Very bad management. The Business unit manger is not professional at all and very very passive person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to change DVS Morocco BU manager in order to be in the same professional level of competitors.
