    Pros

    in case you love to be used, abused and only want to execute what you are told, then Devoteam is the employer of your dreams!

    Cons

    Old fashioned management by fear, doesn't accept progressive minds. Don't dare to question (wrong) decisions!
    CEO's are about to retire, and want to sell the company at the highest price. Therefor, they want to be as big as possible, big as in as many warm bodies on board as possible. Preferable braindead warm bodies.
    Don't expect to consult, despite the 'title' of 'consultant' on your business card.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as living beings, not as cash cows. Or as 'profiles'... People are not L-profiles. Nor T- or I-profiles... People have experiences, interests, knowledge, insights and ambitions... Respect that!

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    Folks are billable resources, you are only as good as they can sell you out.
