    Pros

    Renault is an international workplace and you can talk and eventualy get to know people from all over the world.
    You can develop your future by developing a new car technology.
    You will work with a very talented team and in a rewarding environment

    Cons

    Renault is a big company : that means sometimes communication is lost in the crowd.
    Contractors aren't treated like full-employees, they always make a difference between employees and contractors.
    The supervision is minimal.
    The salaries are not at all good.

    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 Management

    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...

    Stay so long in this company makes you realize how bad it turns...

    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 Management

    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 !!)
