    Pros

    -> Leading company expanding = more career opportunities
    -> Good salaries for Paris
    -> Good and smart people working there

    Cons

    -> Turnover is kind of high for the past two years, this kind of position is not very appealing for bright young graduates
    -> If you don't have a strong interest for IT stuffs, the job can seem very unsexy
    -> HR tell during the interview that it will be easy to have internal mobility abroad after 2 years which is false

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -> Allow and favor abroad mobility

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Paris (France)

    I have been working at Murex full-time

    Pros

    Very good compensation package, it would be difficult to find better in Paris for the same job.
    Well located in Paris.
    Talented people.
    Top management people are pretty smart and humble.
    Developpers are well considered.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not very good.
    Tasks as a software engineer might not be very creative: depending on your team, you might have to deal with a lot of legacy code written decades ago and very poorly designed.
    Fair amount of stress: usually new features have to be shipped pretty fast which obviously affects the quality.
    Globally, poor passion for technical expertice.
    Career development plan almost non existent.

    Pros

    Pas grand chose à dire. Les compétences du développeur moyen sont assez bonnes. Le salaire est bon pour un premier travail.

    Not a lot to say. Average competence of developer is quite good. The pay is good for a starting job.

    Cons

    Ils utilisent une vieille technologie de c++, le logiciel de construction ne fonctionne tout simplement pas. Il y a une forte perte de temps à cause de cela. D'un point de vue pratique, les cadres ne se préoccupent pas de la qualité du logiciel mais seulement des aperçus pour les clients.

    Use very old technology of c++, the software build system just doesn't work: no incremental build. Waste quite a lot of time every day because of that. Practically, the management layer doesn't really care the software quality. All they want is good demos to client.
