    Pros

    Dans Viadeo, vous travaillez sur un réseau social professionnel, avec 75 millions d'utilisateurs. C'est définitivement un des produits les plus attrayants que vous pouvez trouver en France.

    L'équipe est pleine de personnes hautement compétentes, intellig

    In Viadeo, you're working on a professional social network, with 75 million users. It's definitely one of the most appealing products you could find in France.
    The team is full of highly skilled people, smart and hard working.

    Working in Paris offices is great:
     - the place is well situated in the 9th district
     - the company offers free home-made lunch
     - Sodas and coffee are free too.
     - at lunch break, you can have fun with your coworkers in the poker room, table football, video games...

    Cons

    Le manque de concentration tue la société : ils continuent à réorganiser les équipes et changer les priorités. La gestion supérieure interfère avec chacun des employés pour demander des choses "urgentes", sans se soucier de ce qu'ils interrompent.

    Le manque de communication entre les équipes crée beaucoup de frustrations.

    Certains produits anciens sont horribles.

    The lack of focus is killing this company: they keep reorganizing the teams and changing the priorities. The top management interferes with every single employee to ask for "urgent" things, regardless what they are interrupting.

    The lack of communication between teams create a lot of frustrations.

    Some old products are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    S'il vous plaît, partagez votre vision, soyez impliqué, mais faites confiance à votre équipe.

    Please share your vision, be involved, but trust your team.
