    I have been working at Amadeus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    France Trips, Annual Gift, Free Food.

    Cons

    Too much politics, Annual Ratings is very unfair, Lazy HR department, once you refer someone for an opening you have to run behind the recruitment team to get the status. Takes 5 working days to get an address proof letter. Too much regionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Please do a fair analysis of someone's work before rating. HR needs to be active.

    Pros

    Le cadre est idéal, l’environnement multiculturel est vraiment un point positif.
    Aucune pression au travail. Management compréhensif sur les horaires.
    Mobilité et déplacement professionnelle dans de très bonnes conditions.

    Cons

    Technologies et méthodes de travailles archaïques et dépassés.
    Les perspectives d'évolutions en interne sont souvent apparentés à du copinage.
    La reconnaissance d'expert technique est limité, et la reconnaissance du travail et de l'investissement rarement reconnus pour les bonus et augmentations.
    Le recrutement de nouveaux employés est plus souvent basé sur le feeling que sur les réelles compétences.

    Advice to Management

    Ne pas avoir peur du changement, pour créer une dynamique positive dans l'entreprise.
    Reconnaître et valoriser les expert technique au sein des équipes.

    I worked at Amadeus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Very comfortable culture/work environment.
    - Great place to start your career.

    Cons

    - This may not be the place for you if you have previous work experiences elsewhere. Work experience external to Amadeus has no weight in the company after being hired. So, you may feel like not being paid the market value for your services.
    - Promotion is based on the time spent in Amadeus or the work done. People always ask you, "How long have you been in Amadeus?"

    Old technology, difficult to escalate positions and salary, lots and lots of in-house and deprecated technology

    Experience is not considered and management considers mostly French natives

    I worked at Amadeus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good company/HR policies.
    -Chill place for a brief period, if you are n good books of manager/senior manager.
    -Flexibility provided, but depends on your manager/senior manager.
    -Ok type pay as per market standards.
    -Free breakfast,lunch,snack since they want to on-board employees with this image. It's good for bachelors specially.
    -Good company for Business Analysts, where they learn Airline domain and nurture. But not at all a good place for Coders/ Software Enthusiast professionals, since technology is pretty outdated(15 years).

    Cons

    -Bossy culture. Have to agree whatever manager/senior manager says, otherwise get ready to be put into PIP(performance improvement plan)/GET FIRED in the next appraisal cycle.
    -Very poor micro-management. IN/OUT timing to office is being regulated by Senior Managers.
    -Senior Managers follow favoritism, so good hikes given to those employees who are in his/her good records.
    -HR peoples and Project Managers are puppets for Senior Manager/Director.
    -Managers and Senior Managers are less technical who don't understand about technical problems. Technical Professionals should avoid joining the company.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to HR Managers in Bangalore, because they don't have any freedom to take action against Higher level managers. Would request Coders/IT professionals to avoid joining this organisation in Bangalore as far as possible.
