    Pros

    Pixmania était le premier de sa catégorie et a connu des moments difficiles dernièrement. Il est encore trop tôt pour savoir si l'entreprise redeviendra profitable un jour. Cependant, de gros efforts sont déployés dans l'entreprise pour créer un environne

    Pixmania used to be leader in it's business and has been through some tough times lately. It is still early to know if the company will ever be profitable again. However, great effort is put into the company to create an ethical place to work and employees are slowly gaining the trust they might have lost. The offices are nice and you will NEVER find such a friendly atmosphere, anywhere else. Your colleagues will probably become your friends.

    Cons

    Il y a eu des moments difficiles et les français n'oublient jamais. Beaucoup d'entre eux se plaignent encore de la gestion du passé. Ils n'ont pas tort, certains managers étaient de l'ère pré-Dixon, où on recrutait les amis à des salaires ridicules. Ils ne sont pas toujours les meilleurs à ce qu'ils font... Egalement, l'entreprise déploie des efforts pour les nouveaux plans de carrière; je ne les ai pas encore vu donc je ne peux pas juger. Auparavant, on restait seulement 2 à 4 ans et puis on partait.

    There have been some tough times and the French never forget. Many of them will still complain of past management. They are not all mistaken, some managers are left behind from the pre-Dixons era where friends were recruited at ridiculous salaries. They are not always the best at what they do... Also, the company is putting effort into new career plans; I have not seen them yet so cannot judge. You used to only stay 2 to 4 years then leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Au niveau des bonus (jusqu'à 30% du salaire): il doit y avoir un plan formel mis en place. Certains managers les donnent ou les reprennent clairement selon qu'ils aiment ou n'aiment pas l'employé concerné.

    Concerning bonuses (up to 30% of salary): There needs to be a formal plan in place. Some managers are clearly giving them out or taking them away when they do or don't like the concerned employee.

    Pros

    Environnement international grâce au pilotage centralisé des activités, depuis le siège de Paris, par une équipe réellement internationale ! Pour une carrière dans le e-business français, Pixmania est très bon pour votre CV.

    International environment due to the fact that most activities are run centrally from Paris HQ by a truly international team! For a career in French e-business Pixmania is very good for your CV.

    Cons

    Le middle management est en général complètement non professionnel ! Niveaux de salaires BIEN en dessous de l'industrie et des standards de la région En conséquence, taux de rotation du personnel anormalement élevé.

    Middle management is normally absolutely unprofessional! Salary level is FAR below industry and regional standard. In consequence abnormally high staff turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Une meilleure formation en gestion des ressources humaines. Essayer de rendre le personnel plus loyal avec de meilleures conditions de travail et des salaires adaptés.

    Better training in people management. Try to create employee loyalty by better working conditions and adequate salaries.

    Pros

    Ils embauchent de nombreux jeunes et leur donnent une chance dans un marché du travail difficile. C’est aussi un nom qui fait mouche sur un CV.

    They hire plenty of young people and give them a chance in a tough job market, it is also a good name to have on the CV.

    Cons

    L’encadrement direct n’a aucune (ou presque) notion d’organisation et ne sait pas comment traiter ses subordonnés. Les subordonnés reçoivent peu de retours positifs et sont globalement traités comme des robots, et le taux de rotation du personnel est donc très élevé. Les salaires sont en-dessous de la moyenne des salaires versés dans ce type d’industrie.

    Middle management have little or no clue about planning and how to treat their subordinates, subordinates are given little positive feedback and are generally speaking treated as robots, and employee turnover is therefore very high. Salary is below the mean compared to the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commencez par écouter vos employés et prenez des cours d’organisation et de communication.

    Start listen to your employees and take some courses in planning and communication
