    Current Employee - Asia Region in Guyancourt (France)

    I have been working at Renault full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    in a bad way :
    if you become a preferred employee by the management committee members, you can spend as much money as you want and change your life !! become expatriate in a country where there is no value for the company , get high salary,...

    also, you can get promotions from a simple employee to director immediately !!

    Cons

    No ethics in this company, decisions are made based on the decision of few people who have power and are close to the president, it can be any kind of decision : it can be firing someone after being a company member for more than 10 years, after having gained awards for the company ... over there, it is so political, no ethics... you just have to obey the ones with power, otherwise your career is death. although the funny thing is that such people get fired themselves soon ! in this company which looks like dictatorship government, no one lasts long ...even the close ones to the president.

    there are no hirings from outside (very rare), no new ideas, no new thinkings... they bring impatriates from other countris but none of them survey in renault !! they leave all with lots of bad experiences and they join other companies right after.

    our team included 5 people from the high potential list, who are all gone to other companies !!

    management committee are so worried about their own future that they easily sacrifice their teams, put the blame on them to survive...

    the results are not important in this company, what is important is the communication and showing false results as well as your relationship to the president.

    HR role is ridiculous, nothing for the people, no respect for the employees, just following the orders of the powerful members of the executive committee.
    By far, this company was the worst experience I had among the 4 total auto manufacturers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this company needs a re-start with new people and with new policies, new culture and more professional people in management team in order to survive...

    Current Employee - Chef De Project in Guyancourt (France)

    I have been working at Renault full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance , work with people who like cars , lots of opportunities to learn and work on interesting topics... good training system

    Cons

    poor compensation (they think loving cars is an enough reward... but it was 10 years ago, before jobs became boring...) , poor brand image (and therefore poor revenues and low budget to work)
    Don't expect to climb if you are not a friend of a big boss... that's how poor managers stay with good positions. And the CEO is too scary to be told the truth...
    Strategy is not very clear : low cost ? premium ? innovation ?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First of all remember you work with PEOPLE :
    These people have a strong attachment to the company but it disappoints them every day... the HR push them away, good managers all left... now the managers try re-organizing the teams and put more mess... And now organization is so complex that nobody is responsible anymore...
    every 4 years another manager decides to focus on cost or quality or innovation but never all on the same time (too stupid?) therefore progress on one axle is made with failures on the other axles...
    Short-term minded managers are so focused on their bonus that they meet their KPI and don't give a s... on the other important topics.
    In all the convention meetings, you here quality, cost, product, but never PEOPLE (Louis Schweitzer, you are being missed so much !!)

    Pros

    Restaurant d'entreprise avec bcp de choix

    Cons

    Comme toutes les grandes entreprises, les employés sont réduits à un numéro
    Hierarchie sur de nombreux niveaux
    Opacité entre les différentes directions

    Cons

    Emplacement du site au Plessis-Robinson.

    A mon époque, les apprentis étaient difficilement intégré (2007)
    Séparation des prestataires et employés
    Trop de réunions

    Pros

    Une très grande maturité industrielle, des processus bien établis. Salaires corrects. De beaux produits et des opportunités dans le monde entier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Il faut changer de patron. On a dépassé le phénomène d'usure.

    Former Employee - Ingénieur De Recherche in Guyancourt (France)

    I worked at Renault

    Pros

    La passion de l'automobile, l'esprit d'innovation. Les avantages sociaux et le Comité d'établissement (ex: seule entreprise ou mon salaire a été automatiquement renegocié).

    Cons

    La taille deshumanisante de l'entreprise et son inertie.

    Peu de possibilité d'évolution si vous ne venez pas d'école de rang A ou si vous n'avez pas de MBA ou PhD

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversifiez les profils, favoriser les échanges entre les directions. Donner plus de reconnaissance.

    Pros

    Très bon CE, plage horaire variable, réduction sur le prix des véhicules. Les apprentis sont bien suivis.

    Cons

    La hiérarchie se moque des employés, ne les écoute pas, manque de motivation totale des employés mais la hiérarchie s'en moque et continu sa politique. Elle pousse les gens à démissionner ou à se faire muter pour ne pas déclarer de plan de licenciement. HONTEUX !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IL Y'A DES GENS EN DESSOUS DE VOUS !! ECOUTEZ LES !! TOUT VA MAL !!! OUVREZ LES YEUX ET ARRETEZ DE REGARDER LES CHIFFRES DE VOS SONDAGES INUTILES, ALLEZ SUR LE TERRAIN !!!!

    Très mécontent de l'équilibre "travail/vie privée". Vous avez fermé Rueil, rallongeant donc les temps de trajet des employés. Certains passent plus de 4h/jours dans les transports. Mais ça vous vous en moquez.
