    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable job, excellent benefits, usually interesting work, If you like a large very process driven organization where your a small cog in a big machine, then this place will suit you.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get promoted unless your French. Often your job description and responsibilities will change without your consent. Don't step on anyone else's toes in trying to prove your worth. They give the illusion of caring about employees well being and promotions, but it very rarely happens. Wage increases are very low if at all Don't expect to get rich here.

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good, vacation and holidays plus sick days are amazing specially if you pass the 5th, 15th year. Flexible, Work/Life balance, and well educated professionals. Direct managers in CS are the best, there for over 30 years, they know what they want you for.

    Cons

    Pay for PhD is and not growing much every year much. managers know it and they say can't do much.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the developers has got some strong attitudes. So they may need to think of getting retired after so many years.

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Its a job that pays the bills and studio positions are typically eligible for overtime.

    Cons

    I honestly don't know where to start with this place. Management in nearly non existent and when they do step in they rarely know whats going on. It seems like Dassault bought 3Dx and has no idea how to run a creative studio. There's no teamwork, no creative culture, and no leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Learn and know your business! Listen to your employees, they're human being with lives and families. If you don't give these people an opportunity to grow, you will suffocate them.

    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very stable company, always profitable, leader in their field.

    Cons

    Too many people watching and checking not doing. No career path. Little if no recognition for job done well, all about profit and how much did they get.

    Advice to Management

    more technical people with experience in the industries they serve, less focus on the instant win amount but on investing with a customer to make both profitable.

    Profitable company with a good growth and a strong vision. Many very interesting customers from all industries working at the forefront of innovation.

    Trust the R&D teams, give more autonomy, hire more from outside.
