    I have been working at France Telecom full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Paid every month. For now.

    Cons

    Most of middle-management do not have a clear view of market needs, and don't understand technologies that could provide required products and services. Consequently, they are unable to decide on a clear strategy.

    There is no career progression plan for technical experts. This means that people wanting to get some salary increase have to become managers, even if they do not like this, and are very bad at it.

    R&D is currently being torn down. This will not help the company to survive...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a real career progression path for technical experts. But, more importantly, ensure mediocre managers are put in positions where they are harmless, and replace them by real, knowledgeable managers.
