    Pros

    A truly global family. Very friendly people, very relaxing and informal working environment. Pressure at work is low. You will most likely dealing with some very stylish and interesting people. Quite enjoyable to work there.

    Cons

    Too big, so most people are not really have a clear idea what they are doing. And the company structure sometimes confuses people.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to what works, it may be hard to run a company this size with such a global presence, and the courage to innovate is amirable. But don't change too much.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bata.

    Interview

    First, I got an interview through the phone with a HR to talk about my motivations. It was schedule and it last around 20 to 30 minutes. Then, I had an interview in the office with a HR and the marketing Manager. They asked me about my previous experiences and my motivations. Then, they gave me a little test in order to confirm my knowledge and way of work. I had 45 minutes to explain a digital strategy operation. To finish, I did a last skype with an other manager to confirm my abilities for the job.
