    Pros

    Orange is a global company, very innovative we work on cutting edge technology. Very confortable atmosphere to work in. The lab has a unique history and now appears to be more insightful about the skillsets that are needed to become a world reknowned lab and they are moving to that end. They are a very stable company and are still on track for paying bonuses and merit increases which is very positive since many companies doing this economic down turn cannot financially afford to do this.

    Cons

    France Telecom does offer mobility and career advancement but you have to be willing to move to Europe. Getting approvals from the parent company in France can be timely and unfortunately we all have to suffer because of the timeliness issue which is quite normal for companies who have there parent company in another country.. Some of the downsides are that many of the employees there have worked there for some time and have adopted very negative demotivating attitudes that unfortunately effect the morale of others..

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with staff by having more frequent meetings

    Pros

    FT in North America was a great place to work because management really seemed to be appreciative of the talent that they had on board.

    Cons

    While FT in North America, New York office was a really wonderful place to work, unfortunately, the New York office has closed. Too bad!

    Advice to Management

    FT in North America was a really, really great place to work. At some point in the future, it could make sense to reconsider re-opening a New York office.

    Pros

    Orange is a great company to work for! Unlike other American based telecom companies, they are dedicated to their culture and values. Work/life balance is not simply touted by management- it is a reality that makes Orange a great place to work for those that need the flexibility. Wherever you are in your career, Orange is the place to grow and advance to the next level in the global telecom industry.

    Cons

    The company is very bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    The bureaucracy within the company needs to be addressed. Unlike other telecoms, Orange has an amazing, dedicated workforce that truly believes in their company and wants to see its success. Help them realize this success by making it easier to deliver results.

    Pros

    Global company, able to work with colleagues, staff and executive management across the world. Historically, lots of interesting travel but that has been curtailed through better use of collaboration tools and video conferencing.

    Cons

    Several major senior executive management team changes over the past 5 years, including changes presently being made. Company continues to receive global telecommunications industry awards, but competition is very stiff, and there are lots of cost cutting actions being taken. A lot of employee nervousness about whether they are "next".

    Advice to Management

    Really need to settle the executive management team changes, and stop moving all significant roles back to Paris. Must demonstrate to the employees that the company which successfully expanded its global operations is not retrenching to a "French company" with little opportunity for advancement to senior positions if one does not speak French.
