    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.

    "Bully Leadership - 3DExcite"

    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There used to be a lot of empowered and talented people working at 3DExcite, formerly RTT. There's potential to turn it around and stop the downward trend, if they can make some key leadership changes. As others have mentioned, they have very good health benefits. But you'll need them... the place is a health hazard.

    Cons

    People complained for a while about the acquisition by Dassault, but the problem is failed and hostile leadership. The current leadership has no applicable expertise in the field and lacks vision. As a result the 3DExcite US organization is suffering, not meeting their targets, and falling dramatically in employee satisfaction ratings.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the top US leadership before the hard working talent leaves, and the core accounts are lost. Since the start of last year there are increasing incidences of treating reports with contempt, bullying, with more frequent and open expressions of anger in inappropriate ways. People who have been roughly treated have seen the bully behavior, but fear retaliation from the top for bringing it to light.

    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.
