    Former Contractor - Quality Assurance in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Orange as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice opportunities and interesting jobs. People were really friendly, and I did learn a lot on the job.

    Cons

    Management is more interested in meeting their target and get their bonus, than carring about the product, customers, or employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on improving the product and the experience, rather than meeting random decided targets to get your bonus.
    Listen to your employees

    I worked at Orange as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a good salary, you have your own office, you work on very big scale projects and products. I speak for my team, but they were all very nice and made sure I got integrated in the service.

    Cons

    You don't really have responsibilities. Of course you work on big scale projects, but you are insignificant. The hierarchy here is horrible, everything moves so slowly because you have to get the approvable from at least 4 people everytime you want to do something.

    I worked at Orange as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company provides good perks such as discount on products (mobile, offers).
    That job is pretty good for internship.
    Training

    Cons

    A lot of pressure drived by high objectives.
    Therefore, management is bad.
    Hours are inconvenients.
    Work-Life balance : sometimes it's difficult because of the weekend work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Orange as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's always something interesting to do, somewhere, in some department. There a good share of competent people, too. So you will never run out of projects or things to do or new stuff to learn.

    Cons

    Nothing get ever done "in a reasonable way". Decision-making is poor or non-existing. Hierarchy levels are infinite and never ending, and, for a give role, you have at least 5 people doing exactly the same thing in 5 different departments. At the end of the day, if you like things well done, don't go there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Stirring" does not imply high-productivity. Stop looking for "quick-wins" and start working for mid to long term goals. Kill half of the projects you are running and double the funding for the remaining ones !

    I have been working at Orange as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great relationship with management
    - Provides you with interesting projects
    They take me on business trips to different offices and once to London to secure a deal for a business partnership

    Cons

    - Senior management doesn't take ideas of interns into consideration
    - Very autocratic
    - Doesn't innovate very well, a very stagnant atmosphere
    - Lots of red tape, lots of approval processes even for the simplest decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make your organisation more fluid and give it a more flat structure

    I have been working at Orange (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good ergonomic office space at customer services building

    Cons

    I was forced to lie to customers when they had blatantly been overcharged ; a profusion of petty office politics and back-stabbing within the organisation ; greed is king within this company

    I have been working at Orange full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good work/life balance, friendly, interesting international environment, some great projects, reasonable benefits, pockets of excellence

    Cons

    Very complex and political organisation, having become increasingly French-centric over the past 5 years. Limited career evolution opportunities, with very few exceptions. Many talented people have left, although a few pockets of excellence remain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to foster a high-performance organisation, with policies and rewards that enable overachievers to be systematically identified, compensated and promoted; and underachievers to be dismissed.

    Pros

    If you are French (or even just plane not English) then you're going to have a great time.

    Cons

    This is probably the most raciest company I've ever worked for and I'll be off at the first opportunity.
