Pros

La possibilité de bouger d'un groupe à l'autre et d'essayer différents postes existe encore (mais le temps où on était payé pour bouger comme ça est bien loin).

Ability to move from one group to another and experience different businesses is still possible (but the days of getting paid to move like this are long gone).

Cons

Les cadres sont toujours pris au piège entre des employés déprimés et une direction autocratique qui veut que tout soit fait à sa façon. Les opportunités de carrière en France sont inexistantes à cause des coûts du système français, qui poussent les multinationales à investir dans des pays où aux coûts plus faibles.

Middle management are still stuck between depressed employees, and autocratic senior management that want to see everything their way. Career opportunities in France are null due to the costs of the French system pushing multinationals to invest in lower cost locations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Responsabilisation n'est pas qu'un mot. Mettez-la en pratique, et enlevez un peu des cadres en surnombre.

Empowerment isn't just a word. Put it in to practice, and trim out a layer of redundant middle management.
