    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are the company. GREAT people to work with - very smart and capable

    Cons

    Not enough trust in the companies & leadership outside of France.

    Advice to Management

    To the leaders in Velizy: The people in NAM have - in general - better credentials, better education, and more years of experience than the people at HQ. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT.

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

    Pros

    The medical benefits are great.

    Cons

    Raises are often terrible at best. The company does a yearly survey each year to find out what areas could use improvement. When the CFO, Kathleen D. spoke to us on the subject, she said that we are paid what they think we are worth and what they think is fair.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sending surveys out that create unnecessary meetings and waste everyone in the companies time and then immediately follow up with how we need to work on becoming more efficient as a whole. If you want to talk just to hear yourself speak, then call your cellphone from your work phone and answer it.

    Innovative company that has invested billions in their 3DExperience platform. The investments in R&D. The company pay DS has grown substantially by acquisition over the past 10 years. They are becoming a visionary leader in Enterprise Product Life-Cycle Management.

    There are pockets of dysfunctional middle management that struggle with transparency and basic ethical behavior within the overall company hierarchy. Overall the company and HR will intervene and attempt to curtail the dysfunction. There are issues with professionalism in middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor dysfunctional management styles and neutralize and isolate such influence and continue to compensate employees for their contributions. Reinforce professional behavior and let HR do their job.

    Pros

    On top of our above-average amount of vacation time, our HR team is constantly working to ensure our wellness/health/life benefits are among the best. This company has always been supportive of my goals and career development.

    Internal communication is poor and corporate culture is driven by French headquarters, which can lead to cultural misunderstanding and lack of adherence to deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Communication with employees is key, and it starts from the top.
