    Pros

    Average insurance coverage and diverse work environment.

    Cons

    Outdated internal tecnology systems patched/ cobbled together making it extremely difficult to support customers in a timely manner.

    The great benefits are an illusion - you have to jump through many hoops to take your annual and sick leave. Company disrespects US Labor laws (Wrongful termination, Race and Gender Discrimination etc).

    Lots of foreign employees with questionable "right to work" in USA status

    Most employees have not received pay raises for the during of their employment there.

    Losing marketshare to American competitors - company is a fraction of what it once was in Atlanta.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the US law if you intend to operate in America. Stop bringing French student "interns" and taking jobs away from more highly qualified Americans. Listen to your customers - what sells in Europe may not be what your American Fortune 500 companies want.

    Pros

    while there is self nomination policies with expectations of feedback, often positions are filled without even interviews

    Cons

    the business base and margins on repeat business appear to be shrinking. 2014 saw redundancies in some high cost countries

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits with lots of time off. Most people get to work from home at least a couple of times a week. I didn't experience any micromanaging. There is a lot training opportunity. It's an international company, so you work with people from all over the world. There are great people at the company, most who have been there for many years.

    Cons

    The company is struggling to compete price-wise and services-wise. AT&T can offer cheaper network services than Orange can in the U.S. The bigger profits are made off of services on top of network, such as VoIP, Video Conferencing, Cloud, etc. While Orange offers these products, mostly through partnerships with other companies, they have done a poor job of training on them, integrating them into tools for implementation and supporting sales and account teams to sell these products. The company is laying off most of its sales support and implementation teams and is moving it to India and Brazil to save costs, which is hurting morale and weakening service delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a super tool that centralizes all the quoting, ordering and implementation processes into one place. Integrate the technical documentation into this super tool, as well. Move away from centralized implementation and sales support and create regional Sales and implementation teams that work together. Move more quickly to selling additional services, especially Cloud, to boost revenue margin.
