    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Because it's a large company there are processes in place for everything and everything happens on a consistent schedule. There is a lot of room for movement and a lot of resources for learning and growth.

    Cons

    Yearly raises are extremely low (2% is considered excellent, most people get less) and there is absolutely no way to negotiate for more even if it is acknowledged that your performance was considered above and beyond. Negotiate for the highest starting salary you can. Managers have little to no control over their individual employees because everything is based on corporate policies
