    I have been working at Amadeus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amadeus employees come from all over the world
    High internal mobility
    Great culture, great people
    Very smart workforce, employees are experts in their respective field
    High recognition & accountable for projects
    Work-life balance
    Inspiring CEO and leaders who (usually) trust their people

    Cons

    Internal politics
    (Too) low turnover and some people who should get fired stay
    Office is not downtown
    Compensation is slightly lower than the average

    Advice to Management

    We should have a smaller office downtown for employees who live in the Cambridge/Boston area.
    You should not hesitate to fire employees who are underperforming/behaving badly as it drains the team's motivation.
    Millenials should have the job seniority they deserve instead of keeping layers for the sake of keeping layers.

    I have been working at Amadeus full-time

    Pros

    If you want to do something other than work this is a great place.

    Cons

    No growth in all aspects. No growth technologically, functionally and management sucks. The Unit Managers think they have accomplished everything in life and just don't care about anything.
    Some young people seem like they are trying to creat a culture n the company but then at some point get exhausted. Can't blame these young people.
    The management seems to not care about improvement and training their unit managers.

    Advice to Management

    Probably it's better to move back to France.
    What is the point of hiring people here and then making them code monkeys dependent on France.

    Pros

    Great vacation perks (3 weeks to start off increase by one week every 5 years;caps at 5), Healthcare, 401k. Depending on your manager, you can work from home.

    Cons

    Location, location, location.... The city is trap to get in and out of. Expect at least an hour commute each way if you are under a 20 mile radius. Pay is so so. A lot of direction from Madrid may or may not align with the states.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay and close the gender gap. Teach in detail and not just general overviews. Don't fill in positions with people who of seniority just because it's their turn....
