    Pros

    La branche française offrait jadis de bon salaires, elle est encore recommandable.

    L'ambiance est bonne, les gens sont empliqués, serviables, experts dans leur domaine et prêts à prendre des risques pour innover. Il y a de bonnes opportunités de se forme

    The french entity used to give some good salaries and is still on the up side.
    The ambiance is good, people are dedicated, helpful, experts in their area and ready to take risks in order to innovate. There are good opportunities for training and trying new things. The senior management is supportive and available.

    Cons

    Certains des meilleurs éléments ont récemment quitté la compagnie, ce qui pourrait avoir de mauvaises répercutions sur la motivation de certaines équipes. Il est difficile de prévoir où en sera cette entité dans deux ans.

    Some of the best people recently left the company and it might have some bad effect on the motivation on some teams. There is no clear view about where this entity will be in more than 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ils devraient recruter de nouvelle personnes (vieilles et jeunes) afin de rafraîchir les équipes.
    Ils ne devraient pas voir cette branche comme une filiale offshore du siège social basé aux US.

    They should recruit new people (old and young) in order to refresh the teams. They should not see it as an offshore company for US based headquarter.

    Pros

    Un environnement vraiment international et amical. Bon équilibre vie professionnelle/vie privée. Bonne entreprise pour un début de carrière (courbe d'apprentissage et visibilité internationale).

    Truly multinational environement, friendly culture. Good work life balance. Nice place for early career (learning curve, international exposure)

    Cons

    Sur le déclin. Détournée par sa propre stratégie de vouloir satisfaire les analystes et les investisseurs, tout en considérant les employés comme un vulgaire facteur de production : coupe budgétaire (renvoi d'employés, délocalisation du travail en Inde et en Pologne, baisse des avantages sociaux) ; les employés restants doivent faire plus avec moins de moyens.

    Declining. Hijacked by its on short strategy to please analysts and investors and consdier employees just as a production factor: cut costs (= fire people, offshore most of the work in Poland and India, reduce benefits), ask remaning ones to do more with less.
