    Pros

    Excellent benefits and bonus potential, understanding management, good work/life balance. Management seemed genuinely concerned about your welfare and needs.

    Cons

    Very few promotional or job movement opportunities outside of France or India. Like many other companies Orange Business Services is focused on moving as many jobs as possible to India.

    Keep evolving and improving in all aspects.

    Pros

    Global company that ran well and understands process.

    Cons

    Company is controlled by Sales and focuses too much on short term.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people more to understand how things could work better. Simplify the work and split up the work in too many steps.

    Pros

    Well known brand globally and has good international environment. Some countries have good opportunities with good packages. Generally above average in all aspects.

    Cons

    Due to global organization, there are many tools specifically used for everything and not being managed well. Turnover rate is high in some countries which is an issue on most of the global companies.

    Advice to Management

    Better visibility on global business should be provided to all employees. Also preformance review cycle should be more effective and managers should be reviewed with 360 degrees approach.

    Pros

    The people that work at Orange Business Services are very pleasant to work with. The culture is very professional, and you will be able to work with wonderful people from all over the world. Since everyone is spread so thin, you will have the opportunity to work on many (many) different projects.

    Cons

    The management is not progressive enough. The company's talent is squandered. The best people stay until they cannot take it anymore and then leave. People in Paris (HQ) get promoted regularly (whether they are qualified to do the job or not) while the rest of the world stays behind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting all of the French people into management roles for which they are not qualified for and that they have to learn on the job. Look outside the organization to find qualified, smart people to lead the company.

    Pros

    The people at Orange make it a great place to work, learn and grow. The business is so diverse and global it is a great place to work and learn how a global business really works.

    Cons

    The nature of the industry is demanding, stressful and very fast paced. The stress can be very high and the hours and expectations are also high. It is hard to get promoted vs. moved around. Difficult to get a raise (even after being promoted).

    Advice to Management

    Constant change in leadership and direction creates chaos and makes it difficult to be effective.

    Pros

    The people you work with are the pros. You can make many long term relationships there. Working remotely is a definite perk and probably the only one.

    Cons

    If you are not part of the "in" group, you are not treated well. French company so if you're not French, you are looked down at. They don't care about their employees at all and don't make it easy to want to stay.

    Advice to Management

    There are no incentives for sales. It's not run by a sales organization. It's run by ops which is a big problem.
