Une entreprise stimulante, mais où les individus doivent réussir "par eux-mêmes" A stimulating company to work for, but a company where individuals succeed "on their own"

Pros

C'est une structure très dynamique, avec peu de couches, assez flexible et assez jeune : finances saines, de nombreux projets stimulants, un environnement de travail relativement bon

It is a very dynamic structure, with few layers, quite flexible, quite young; healthy financials, several exciting projects, relatively good wok environment

Cons

Principalement dédié au marketing, vous pourrez donc être déçu par le manque de reconnaissance si vous n'êtes pas orienté marketing (les tâches peuvent être intéressantes, mais la récompense n'est pas toujours à la hauteur). C'est aussi très exigeant, et un lieu où vous serez jeté dans l'eau : si vous savez nager, vous survivrez, sinon ... tant pis. L'entreprise dépend aussi trop de trop peu de gens, et vous risquerez de trouver nombre de managers pas vraiment géniaux ...

It is mostly a home for marketing, so if you are not a marketing person, you might feel disappointed by the unbalanced recognition (job can be interesting but rewards are not necessarily so great). It is also very demanding and a place where you are thown to the water : if you can swim you survive , otherwise ...too bad. It is also a place that relies too much on too few people, as a result you find a number of not so great managers ...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Occupez-vous mieux des individus, concentrez-vous sur le développement des ressources. Ne confiez pas des responsabilités à quelqu'un simplement car il y a un vide à combler, mais parce que vous pensez réellement qu'il/elle a de vraies chances de réussir

Take better care of the individuals; don't just think about stars but think about resources development. Do not give responsibilities to someone just because there is a hole somewhere , but really because you believe he/she has good chances to succeed : it frustrates everybody around when the wrong people are in place (and it is bad for these people as well)-however give also the means to make people successful , it can be a big waste to let somebody slowly drown when a few swimming lessons would have made him/her a great player.
