    Dassault Systems is a great visionary company with leading innovative technology. Its very safe place to work and develop a career within the organization

    Pros

    Great products. DS culture is technologically very progressive. R&D constantly push the envelope to create groundbreaking offerings to our customers with products that deliver true value. Extremely talented co-workers, friendly culture, lots of opportunities to travel, lots of relevant on the job training and education. Employment here is quite stable (unless you're in Services).

    Cons

    Heavy emphasis on functional innovation leaves gaps in software maturity - making life difficult for sales and technical consultants. Travel can become extreme at times. Communication with headquarters in France can be difficult. While Sales and Industry organizations seem fine, the Services and Education organizations are not great places to work and should be viewed only as a way to get in the door.

    Pros

    DS is a fantastic engineering company with some great products. As with many large software companies, DS is in the middle of a pivot from lots of individual product lines to groups of products sharing a common architecture.

    Cons

    Growth is mostly by acquisition, this means very often there are more employees than the company would like. This can prevent career progression, even for talented individuals

    Advice to Management

    Develop a fast-track program to retain strong talent and don't be afraid to fire under-performers.
