    Pros

    (RTT, pre Dassualt Sytemes 3DExcite) Previously creative and fleet of foot, innovating, fearless and bullish, with real value on offer.
    BTW, consider "Dassaut Systemes, 3DExcite Corp."......have you ever heard of such an idiotic, sophomoric corporate name ?

    Cons

    Now post Dassault acquisition it's like working among the Soviet Secret Police under Stalin.
    Misguided management, complete and comprehensive lack of open door transparency. Sadness is the realization that a former group of creative and client-centric market makers are now "led" by a gang of bureaucratic misfits. Cloak and dagger doesn't even begin to cover the dysfunction permeating this group of corporate weasels. Management characterized by desperation and strategy du jour.
    BTW, consider "Dassaut Systemes, 3DExcite Corp."......have you ever heard of such an idiotic, sophomoric corporate name ?

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Soon.

    Pros

    Motivated people
    Good technology stack
    Good business outlook (at least, in the short to medium term)

    Cons

    High stress and high workload
    All about the bottom line and not much about people
    IT didn't listen to demands of R&D and spent lots of time on projects that didn't provide much value

    Advice to Management

    Focus on maintaining a good environment for your workers 'cause they're leaving in droves
    Be more open-minded and listen more to lower-level technical experts about the long-term plan

    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.

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
