    I have been working at Amadeus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work-life balance Perfect for people moving from France office since all managers are French and favor French speaking people Location far from Boston with lower cost of living

    Cons

    Only low-level project for non-French speaking employee in Waltham location. Not very fair for local employees (sometime people speak french in meeting even if some people do not understand) Salary is lower than other IT company but work is more relax All decision coming from Europe

    I worked at Amadeus

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity to learn and great domain to work on. Good compensation and wide opportunities to travel and discuss the requirements with Client.

    Cons

    Extensive work hours. The french culture seems to dominate and people talk in french in front of you even when you do not understand french. This doesn't seem welcoming.

    I have been working at Amadeus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice place to work and some very brilliant people. Lots of projects to work on and training are available (depending which department and manager) Every now and then, hackathons are proposed so you can innovate with new tech/ideas Effort is made to engage employees. Multi-cultural environment.

    Cons

    Most of the management is European (eventually French) and decisions are coming from Europe, it becomes difficult or impossible to drive your projects and it impacts engagement.

    I worked at Amadeus full-time

    Pros

    - TRULLY international / intercultural - Good atmosphere, young people and great place to live - Great variety of jobs - some really interesting

    Cons

    - HR policy... lots of candidates and no competition in the region, so no effort on rewards or salary. - Career management is poor and mainly based on which school you graduated (typical French) - Great variety of jobs - some really not interesting
