    Pros

    Great people, great culture, job security, responsible and overall great training. Fantastic best in class products. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    Slow decision making. Salaries are way below market & rock stars get penalized - French culture manages to the middle. You literally have to commit a felony to get fired. Work productivity tools (IT) are archaic at best. Process heavy and a little light on creativity & innovation (product is clearly an exception)

    Advice to Management

    Talent: Fix the compensation system reward top talent @ or above market (salary, bonus & equity) and start early (A lot of highly talented people have left lately because you made it too easy for them to be recruited away). Compensation does matter and it reflects how much value you place on an employee. Overhaul the productivity/ IT infrastructure (Conference rooms, computers, software etc) its been a serious drag on productivity.

    Pros

    -Really difficult to get fired -Pay and benefits were ok

    Cons

    -Terrible work-life balance -Pay lip service to quality, employee engagement and ethics but only really care about production (at least the facility I worked at) -Lack of accountability, a lot of finger-pointing between departments -Very short-sighted and short-tempered management -Decision-making that goes behind raises, reviews and transfers is very 'questionable'.

    Advice to Management

    I think they suck and it's time for them to go.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are excellent, and culture is fun.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch, goals for sales are unattainable due to inefficient forecasting and manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck! There is a deep hole, that will take years to fix. Every rep I've spoken to is looking outside the company for new opportunities.
