    En une phrase, je dirais que c'est l'une des meilleurs et des pires entreprises pour lesquelles j'ai travaillé. In one sentence I would say this was one of the best and worst companies I worked for.

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    - Collègues formidables.

    - De belles opportunités d'apprentissage, bien que tout apprentissage se fait par l'erreur et que quand quelque chose casse, vous devez le réparer.

    - Beaucoup de projets de haut rang.

    - Great Colleagues.
    - Great learning opportunity, although all learning is done hands on when something crashes and you need to fix it.
    - Lots of high profile projects.

    Cons

    - Trop de petit management et de contrôle. Vous sentez Big Brother vous regarder constamment.

    - Trop d'exposition à des discussions de management qui nous dépassent. En tant que responsable de compte, mon objectif est d'être utile à mes clients, pas d'être 70 %, 80 % ou 90 % facturable.

    - Très peu de temps consacré à la formation et pratiquement pas de budget de formation.

    - Équilibre de vie parfois brouillé.

    - Le manque de soins envers les employés. Comme c'est un poste technique, vous valez au moins autant que vos heures facturables.

    - Too much micro management and scrutiny. The feeling big brother is watching every move.
    - Too much exposure to higher management discussions. As a technical account manager, my goal is to be great and useful to my clients, not be 70%, 80% or 90% billable.
    - Very little time allocated to training and practically no training budget.
    - Rough work/life balance sometimes.
    - Lack of care towards employees. Even though it's a technical position, you're only as good as your billable hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commencer à se soucier davantage de vos employés et moins de vos numéros. Après tout, les gens font les chiffres.

    Start caring more about your employees and less about your numbers. After all, the people make the numbers.

    Certainly very disappointing to see your thoughts here, though I appreciate them. Clearly our employee recognition and compensation / benefits / equity efforts are not having the desired effect ... More
