Consless parking space at main building, sometimes not enough work is available to engage you, you feel bored.

Advice to Senior Managementengage more with developers

Good learning at Sopra

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Noida (India)

I have been working at Sopra Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros1. Decent salary hike
2. Work life balance (Depends on project, if project demands you will have to stay late everyday.) For women, work life balance is there in every project.
3. You can meet anyone (including COO) to raise your concerns.

Cons1. Projects are managed by French team so they are the decision makers. Indian managers are dummy and they tend to justify their roles by making unnecessary changes. (Like introduce new processes)
2. Being technically sound costs you for your work life balance. If you are technically sound most of the time you will do other people's job and in performance discussions managers will put it against you.
3. Managers will listen you but actually they will not do anything to address your concerns.
4. Too much politics everywhere.
5. Software Testers are valued much more than Software Developers.

Advice to Senior Management1. Understand Sopra values and try to inculcate them in you.
2. Avoid politics and favoritism.
3. Be transparent.
4. Most important: Don't use awards/rewards/recognitions as a tool for preventive action. Honoring a wrong candidate may motivate him/her but demotivates whole team.

Worked for Sopra Group (Axway) for 4 years

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Sopra Group full-time

Pros- Managers are polite atleast while speaking .
- Good Work/Life balance
-Average salary hike

Cons-Lack of technical growth , you will rut doing same kind of work till you leave .
-Most of the project management is done by France , in India you will only find insecure manager who have no idea what there role is and justify there presence by unnecessary interference .
-Technical brilliance is not valued.

Advice to Senior Management- Hire technically sound people in India if you want to innovation and quality work.
- Be prepared to pay people the salary the deserve , average salary hike for all will leave little incentive for the top performers to stay .

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

ProsGood atmosphere in the team; it's just a nice bunch of people to work with. Approachable senior managers. Good range of technical skills and support in the team. Close and down to earth relationships with clients.

IT Consultant at Sopra Branking Software

IT Consultant (Current Employee)
Brussels (Belgium)

I have been working at Sopra Group full-time for less than a year

ProsReasonaby well paid with decent offices. Free meals are greatly appreciated however beware of the fat intake! Young community and good team spirit amongst employees in general.

ConsPoor career opportunities and uninteresting work (most of the time). Developments are essentially performed in COBOL which seems old-fashioned, especially when one has to use the VI editor.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
