Pros

Un domaine professionnel très actif avec de bonnes opportunités de développer vos compétences.
Exige un haut niveau de dévouement et de motivation.

A very active working area with a large opportunity to develop your competencies.

Need a hight level of dedication and proactivity

Cons

Quelquefois, le dévouement demandé et la façon dont il faut travailler -très rapidement et de manière rigoureuse- ne permettent pas un équilibre parfait entre vie professionnelle et personnelle.

Sometime this dedication and the way you need to work very quickly at a hight standard doesn't give you a perfect balance between professionnal life et personnal life.

Advice to Management

    Bureaucracy and Ivory Tower syndrome holds back the potential for growth and limits success.

    Pros

    Great people. Outstanding Medical benefits. Somewhat flexible with time.
    Employees are always open to adapt and follow new strategies. There's will.
    Stock could be higher if practices are more organized all across the globe.

    Cons

    They have an Ivory Tower syndrome: Trying to decide from the UK what's best for every market in the world when THEY DON'T KNOW THE LOCAL MARKETS. If you reflect on this, you can see why they're limiting growth and success.
    Career aspirations are not taken seriously. It is mandatory to include them in the performance appraisals but nothing happens after that. There are no serious budgets for training.
    Disorganized/ Bureocratic/ politically charged company. Sales and Marketing strategies are weak at best. They keep changing every quarter or so (how are you going to measure success with so little time).
    The process to get investments approved is ridiculously bureaucratic and inefficient (they confuse being 'cost conscious' with fiscally responsible). Example: You can get a budget approved for a project by all levels. However, they can take away those funds at any point during the project. This creates a lot of risk of work not being delivered as planned and affects many areas of the business. I don't think they believe in best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the 'DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO' modus operandi.
    You have great people who are willing to follow leaders with charisma.
    BE MORE FLEXIBLE WITH MANAGEMENT IN LOCAL MARKETS (especially the US = now your bigger market )
    Embrace change

    Pros

    Looks after its employees, very good salaries, very good bonuses, very good share saving program, very good pension scheme, offers free gym facilities, lockers, showers, drying rooms, free running track and football field, free parking space, free coffee, tea, milk etc., restaurants within both buildings, organising events with free food and drinks, monthly free drinks at the restaurant, dress down day every Friday, collecting money for charity.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of at this point is that we have no ATM machine in order to withdrawal cash.

    Advice to Management

    Can we please have an ATM machine? :)
