Dynamic challenging environment

Quality (Current Employee)
Paris (France)

I have been working at Renault full-time for more than 5 years

ProsRenault is changing.
From the company that used to be owned by the French government to a global one, with engineering centers and production lines all over the world. Some pros would be: the multicultural environment, the available trainings and the quality of Top management.

ConsIt makes it interesting for the employees, yet challenging and difficult some times - imagine the language and cultural barriers, the need to adapt the tools, the distance, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'd love to see a better reactivity in applying the Management decision - thus, an implication from Top level guys in checking the applicability would be really helpful.
