A collection of micro-cultures

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsA fun and dynamic environment. Many departments including marketing have wide breadth to be individuals in fulfilling their jobs. Generally evaluated on the results of your work with little to no micromanagement.

ConsNo consistency in the culture. Some departments can be overly strict and very structured, others can be very flat with no career plan definition at all. No matter what growth is limited as most recognition and job advancement goes through the Paris office. A superstar anywhere else will face a "wine glass" ceiling. You have to speak french fluently to be seen as influential. Also, the company isn't shy in firing people.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good look the organization and revisit the objectives of each department. Don't be afraid to make changes and cut head count.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
