    Really is best in class technology and pay is very good. Work from Home with great benefits. Make as much as fast as you can and while poor management is not targeting you or doing whatever it take to win a deal.

    Cons

    Where to start? The French hate americans and have will other than to bully the employees around . You get payed well but pay dearly for it. Those in the US to survive are those who keep there mouth shut and become one with the french. HR as well as the company in general are corrupt. Never go to HR with and issue as they will turn around to management to make you life hell.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice. Sounds tough I know but do not treat employees the way you do. Hire Honest HR staff. You go through a new VP of HR every year as no one with any morals can stay there.
