    Pros

    Des gens supers et intelligents, une bonne organisation qui change tous les 2 ou 3 ans pour éviter la routine, de très bons produits, un écosystème complet. Les responsables nationaux sont disponibles et peuvent adapter les stratégies et techniques. Pas t

    Great and smart people, great organization that changes every 2 or 3 years to avoid routine, some very good products, full ecosystem around. Top country management is able to listen and change strategy or tactics. Not too many levels of management, it is possible to find its way up to top product or program management. Internal processes are not too heavy for a company this size.

    Cons

    Il est difficile d'évaluer l'impact de quelqu'un. Cela peut mener certaines personnes à passer plus de temps à améliorer leur réputation en interne qu'à accomplir leur travail.

    De plus, concilier travail et vie privée peut être difficile.

    Size: it is difficult to measure someone's impact. This leads to some people spending most of their time working on improving their internal reputation instead of completing their mission.
    Also keep a reasonable work-life balance can be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vous faites un bon travail de renouvellement de la société; continuez comme ça.

    You are doing a good job reinventing the company; keep on doing this.

    Pros

    Paysage, priorités, environnement, industrie en changement constant. C'est le genre de travail et d'environnement où il n'est pas possible de s'ennuyer.

    Ever changing landscape, priorities, environment, industry. This is the kind of job and environment where one cannot be bored

    Cons

    Paysage, priorités, environnement, industrie en changement constant. C'est le genre de travail et d'environnement où il est parfois difficile de souffler.

    Ever changing landscape, priorities, environment, industry. This is the kind of job and environment where sometimes it's tough to take a breath

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avec le temps, nous avons vu l'entreprise adopter de plus en plus de procédures, ce qui est bien puisque c'est un signe de maturité. Mais nous avons aussi vu des opérations devenir de plus en plus bêtes (exécution !) et toutes les activités étant exécutée

    Overtime, we have seen the company adopting more and more process, which is good because it's a sign of maturity. But also we have seen operations become more and more dump (execution!) and all activities being run to satisfy the damned "scorecard" (I do not thank you for that, KT!). Please make sure that the management and the LT do not lose sight of the core goals, values and our customers, first.
