    Interesting projects, some amazing people, but a culture of disorganization and backstabbing.

    Pros

    Draws amazing employees who are passionate about their work. One of the best groups of people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. FABERNOVEL takes on exciting topics and projects.

    Cons

    Horrendous work-life balance. Lack of organization and unclear priorities. Inability to provide employees with basic resources. Total lack of competent project management, or any sense of organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using interns to produce client work. Focus on your core competencies, rather than trying to position FABERNOVEL as the expert on whatever is trending in tech and consulting.

    Pros

    The office is in Paris, and the projects are interesting and impactful. Like for any consulting firm, it is a good school of business, with the benefit of being a creative work environment.

    Cons

    Because of the no work-life balance culture, you never actually get to enjoy the city (talk about a french way of life!)... too much of the company's communication is based on "poudre aux yeux", they try way too much to be the cool kids in town, when they are actually not.
    The management is distant and snob, unless you have the same background as them, or unless you are of incredible personal value to them (if you have an outstanding alumni network): they play favorites, and not in a good way. Like all french, they are obsessed with the "grandes écoles" system, and it leaves other employees out of the loop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen more to their employees, not wait until they can't take any more
