    Pros

    Des personnes avec lesquelles il était agréable de travailler en général.
    Les managers font preuve de respect tout naturellement envers les employés de la société.
    Les voyages et les dépenses offrent des opportunités de toutes sortes, et KDS occupe une po

    People are generally nice to work with.
    Management naturally shows respect to individuals in the company.
    Travel and expense is full of opportunities of all kinds, and KDS is in a good position to meet great challenges.

    Cons

    Le lieu de travail est loin de tout, et surtout des transports en commun.
    La communication, orale ou écrite, est mauvaise à tous les niveaux (entre les employés ou avec leurs supérieurs).
    Les solutions de court terme qui augmentent la dette technique sont toujours favorisées par rapport aux autres.
    Les capacités techniques des employés sont médiocres.
    La qualité interne du produit est médiocre et très difficile à améliorer. Il n'y a pas de vecteurs d'amélioration dans ce domaine.
    La planification interne est mauvaise (quand elle existe).

    The workplace is far from everything in general, and from any public transportation in particular.
    Communication, oral or written, is very poor at all levels (between employees or with managers).
    Short term solutions that increase the technical debt are always favored over other solutions.
    Technical abilities of employees are low.
    The internal quality of the product is very low and very challenging to increase. And there is no driving force to improve things in that area.
    Internal planning is poor (when existent).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconnaître que les logiciels sont au cœur de l'activité de KDS (contrairement aux voyages, ou aux dépenses), et organiser l'activité en conséquence. Embaucher de (véritables) développeurs de logiciels, développer une vision technique claire pour le produ

    Recognize that the software is at the core of KDS (as opposed to travel, or expense), and organize accordingly. Hire (real) software developers, develop a clear technical vision for the product, balance sales imperatives with technical challenges, and create a teamwork oriented culture.
