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

    Pros

    Possibility to access a wide range of positions, and to switch from one sector to another. (finance -> marketing -> program...)

    Cons

    Poor compensation and salaries. Current HR plan wants people to leave.
    Complexity at every level, too many people on every subject. French state of mind = see the difficulty in the 1st place.
    General stratgy is unclear (if not inexistent ?) = may be a problem once people reach certain positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward the "YES I CAN" attitude.

    Pros

    You can easily find your balance work / life. There is a friendly atmosphere within the teams. Home working is possible.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement were very political and reserved to french people. Event HR ask to invest most of your time in internal networking (instead of working) to prepare your next job. You always need to have a "sponsor" to run block for you if you want interesting options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote meritocracy instead of political
