    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Newly-built light-filled campus, talented employees via acquisition

    Cons

    No strategy -- CEO changes direction every few months
    Anyone questioning the strategy is deemed "too dumb" to understand it
    Poor communications at all levels
    Belief that anything can be built internally -- thus, infrastructure and processes significantly lag other billion dollar enterprises
    Many products don't work -- individually or with each other, causing customer migration and other service issues
    Low compensation and whimsical titles created in France that have no meaning in other markets
    Culture targeted at pitting employees against each other

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to rationalize products and how they work with each other
    Then, take the time to explain to employees and put in perspective how their day-to-day jobs help advance the products and strategy
    Do some true customer research on what customers want and require
    Eliminate the non-compelling products and stop trying to force them on various channels if they're not a fit

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

    Pros

    Great technology company with innovative business approach and variety of domains and industries. Enables employees to move between domains and experience different job functions.

    Cons

    Not competitive in employees compensation. Internal processes are very cumbersome and very much under "French" cultural influence. No transparency in decision making processes, especially regarding to middle management and HR.

    Advice to Management

    Employees recognition, more support for employees carrier development and more transparency in internal management decisions. Stop constant organizational changes every six month, let people work on one position at least for a year.
