Pros

Decent Pay
Decent Benefits
Relaxed atmosphere (when its not quarter end/year end)
They're finally updating some of thier most antiquated systems

Cons

Management acts in crisis mode
If youre not French, good luck getting ahead
Short sighted cost cutting/outsourcing initiatives.
Everyone from the top down stopped trying at least two years ago.
Inept and understaffed support systems
sterotypical French laziness and inefficiency at all levels.
Elitism of the NY office.
HR is very disconnected with the rest of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider the value of ones work when you send it halfway around the world to people who will not go the extra mile.
Make an effort to get to know your subordinates ans what they really do for you
Stop exporting inefficiency
Show some compassion and basic human decency for those who have been impacted and are forced to train thier Bangalore replacements
SIlos are for Corn!

    Pros

    The company is a great place to grow as a person as it provides career opportunities
    Fosters professional growth as training is relatively easy to obtain if desired

    Cons

    Compensation is not comparable to competitors
    Career opportunities are sometimes provided without the appropriate training
    Focus more on retaining local talent, rather then the over abundance of 2 year contract of Paris employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinforce career opportunity provided to employees with the apporpriate types of training to prepare them for the new role. This can avoid the employees from failing.
