Mon expérience en tant qu’apprenti est géniale, mais ça dépend vraiment des gens avec qui on travaille My experience as apprentices is great but it really depends on the people you work with.

Pros

Il s’agit d’une grande entreprise reconnue, qui offre de nombreuses possibilités. Pas à l’intérieur de l’entreprise, car ils n’embauchent pas, mais après, pour chercher un emploi. Si vous avez assez de chance pour être dans un bon département, comme le se

It's a big recognized company which will offer many opportunities. Not inside the firm because they do not hire, but after for your job search. If you are lucky enough to be in a good department, like marketing department, you will have some benefits such as - the possibility to work at home from time to time, you get a laptop which you can carry everywhere. - having flexible working hours : no one will stare at you or make a not funny joke about the time you arrive / leave at you workplace. As long your job is well done nothing else matter. Like I say before, people you work with are the key. I have an amazing team. They trust me, my work and I have responsabilities, interesting projects, I learn a lot.

Cons

Comme toutes les grandes entreprises, ils ont des processus, beaucoup trop… J’ai entendu dire que c’était l’une des pires. C’est vraiment ennuyeux de suivre toutes les étapes, d’avoir à saisir des informations dans les outils, d’obtenir une autorisation pour chaque euro dépensé… Il y a aussi un manque de créativité, on fait toujours le même type d’événements et d’activités, et à cause de tous les processus, on n’a pas assez de temps pour créer. Et on travaille beaucoup avec des agences qui sont là pour apporter de la créativité. Ils n’embauchent pas, même si on réussit à être le meilleur de son open space… C’est pas possible. Quand on arrive, il faut vraiment être dynamique, le travail ne vient pas de lui-même, il faut aller le chercher, aller le demander. Mon expérience est géniale, comme je l’ai dit, mais nombre de mes collègues sont déçus, ils ne font rien, ou alors des boulots inintéressants comme des fichiers excel, ils s’ennuient vraiment. En tant qu’apprenti, on est vraiment mal payé : 1 100 euros…

Like every big company they have process, too many ... I heard it was one of the worst. It is really boring to follow every steps, to have to fill tools with information, to get approval for every € spend... There is also a lake of creativity, we do every the same kind of event and activity, because of all the process we don"t have enough time to create. And we work a lot with agencies which are here to deliver creativity. The do not hire even if you succeed beoing the best of your open space... No way When you arrive you really have to be proactive, work don't come by itself you must look for it, ask for it. My experience is great as I said but many of my fellows are disapointed, they do nothing or ininteresting tasks as excels files, they are really bored. As an apprentice we are really noy paid well 1100...

Advice to Management

Je suis vraiment bien encadré ; quand je suis arrivé, et par la suite, on m’a tout expliqué. Mais ce n’est pas le cas des autres stagiaires ou apprentis : ils sont assez seuls, il y a quelqu’un qui est censé les encadrer, mais ces cadres n’ont pas souvent

I am really well managed, everyting was explained to me when I arrived and after. But It's so not the case of the other trainees or apprentices, they are quite alone, they have someone to manage them who is appointed but they often don"t have time to care about the new one. They really should be aware of where are the needs in order to not waste an apprentice / trainee
