    Good Company - Getting a little too Big

    Information Technology (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are a lot of good people working here and generally speaking it is fun and supportive. We have good products and market share and better than average benefits and pay compared to other businesses in the area.

    ConsThe corporate management is in France which adds red tape and stupid decisions on occasion. We've weathered one of those bad decisions just last year (which was our worst in the past 10), and are now coming back pretty well.

    I'd also say the work-life balance isn't great. Other places give better compensation time, time off, flexible time, and ability to work from home than Nexans.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeave more control to local businesses and plants instead of trying to dictate from the top.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good product concept but poorly marketed and managed.

    Inside Sales (Former Employee) Bethel, CT

    ProsGood benefits and salary is commensurate with position. Small company, not a corporate environment. Nice location.

    ConsPoor senior management. Unwilling to accept change, listen to new ideas and move forward with process improvements. Operating the company like it did 15 years ago. If you do not value home life, this is the place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPolitely leave the company... Hire a outside consultant to perform a due diligence analysis. Listen to employees who may infuse new ideas.
