I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time

Pros

Beautiful new Boston HQ
Great People
Great Benefits
Relaxed Atmosphere
Open door policy with most executives

Cons

TERRIBLE, UNSUPPORTIVE HR STAFF

Compensation varies across the brands - the guy sitting next to you doing the same job will earn significantly more because he is part of a different legal entity.

Awful compensation for the Boston area....negotiate strong up front because no matter how far up the ladder you go, HR will not support a bump in compensation.

Many of the SolidWorks people think they are better than the rest of the organization.

Advice to Management

Start paying your US employees appropriately.
Watch what the HR business partners are doing, they should not be running the show.
Tell the SolidWorks people in the US to stop crying (or leave) it is destroying the culture/morale.

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the management team is knowledgeable about the products and are technically competent. Technical skills are valued and there are opportunites to grow.

    Cons

    With growth there is the challenge of integrating new people and companies. They are still working on integrating the different teams and getting the expanding product line integrated.

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on how to fully integrate remote workers and geographically dispersed teams.

    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Great Products
    - Great Customers
    - Progressive Attitude and Atmosphere
    - Well funded, managed, and controlled.

    Cons

    - U.S. opportunity ceiling seems 'capped' at the border.
    - Communication between vision and execution is poor and untimely.
    - Management and execution processes is ignored by all above the "trenches".

    Advice to Management

    Establish a execution process and schedule you are willing to follow. It will go a long way to communicating obtainable expectations, reducing unnecessary stress, and improving productivity.
