    I have been working at Orange full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Encouraged to learn and do things on my own. My manager walks the talk and I can get good support from him. I am surrounded by many experts and the people that I work with are really friendly.

    Cons

    As for every big companies the politics can be a challenge; still, a good way to learn diplomatics and sometimes funny to observe the struggle for power :).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should focus more on the team dynamics and to reduce the political fights.

    I worked at Orange as a contractor

    Pros

    Good experience for a future career.
    Good salary.
    Lots of progress reviews.
    Other colleagues are generally quite supportive.

    Cons

    Not enough training.
    Targets can be unrealistic and not customer focussed.
    Some managers can be hard task masters when it comes to targets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some more flexibility with targets i.e if someone is really good at exceeding one target but not so good at another take the fact that they have exceeded one into account.
    Ensure that targets do not get into the way of helping customers.

    I have been working at Orange part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Commission is amazing!! some months i can make double my salary so that was pretty awesome. Staff who work there go through extensive interviewing so generally everyone is pretty cool. People are fun to talk to on the fun. Management are generally pretty cool.

    Cons

    Assistant managers are power hungry, they really like letting you know they're higher than you. Targets are constantly used to kick people out the company. They always get increased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being idiots and employing awful ATL's (assistant team leaders).

    I worked at Orange

    Pros

    Recognisable brand
    Relatively good salary and perks
    Subsidised mobile phone
    International company with a large global footprint
    Some challenging projects to work on

    Cons

    Extremely slow to make any decisions, there's simply too much bureaucracy at Orange
    Inability to capitalise on the (once) enormous traffic to its website
    Frustrating management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more agile, your competitors - and they are not necessarily just other mobile companies - are way ahead of you.
