    I worked at Carrefour full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some big company expertise. Chance to work with different functional teams.

    Cons

    Toxic culture. You don’t matter. Your nationality matters. Do not expect being treated equally. Certain French envoys even come with a mentality that they are kings and keep disgusting you when you do not make them feel like kings. Uncompetitive package. Offer you a package slightly a bit higher than the market in the beginning and 0 yearly growth afterwards. Obsolete infrastructure, network and systems that largely slow down efficiency. Heavy work process due to inappropriate company structure and hierarchy. Full of talkers and politicians and their “great ambitions”. Rarely you see people get their hands dirty. The very majority present their “great ambitions” and try to have other people work it out. Just as others have commented: Are you a hard worker? Get used to the fact that people doing nothing have just as much money as you do at the end of the month. Do you have ambition? Search elsewhere because there is no future with Carrefour.
