No opinion of CEO

Pros

Opportunity to work with the latest technologies serving the fast paced fashion industry. Also, the atmosphere is very professional and courteous.

Cons

Home office does not accept realities of some regional markets and chooses to ignore some of the local challenges. Also has become adminstratively heavy

Advice to Management

Listen to the local markets more carefully and make sure the subsidiaries know they are appreciated and respected for their knowledge and insights.

    I have been working at Lectra full-time

    Pros

    I enjoy being part of the impressive Lectra North America team. The company has high quality products, a strong balance sheet and a clear strategy. We've performed great and now we have to accelerate our growth. The company is large enough to ensure you have the resources needed to do your job but small enough that your contribution is tangible.

    Cons

    Your contribution (or lack there of) is tangible. You will be held accountable for the job you do. You can't hide behind your department's success as you can in a large corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve internal communications, continue to look for ways to promote top talent, continue to develop strong, forward thinking strategic plans.

    I worked at Lectra full-time

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with, interesting product scope, nice trips to Paris/Bordeaux for those important enough to travel often.

    Cons

    Once you get a job at Lectra, you will most probably never ever move up. Lectra does not offer careers, just jobs. And if you are not lucky enough to work at the Corporate in Paris, well, welcome to the subsidiary life where you will be told what to breathe and when to breathe it. There is absolutely no autonomy or trust that subsidiaries can do anything right without close supervision. There are many pointless, tedious, daily meetings, just to execute what Corporate would have wanted anyways, no questions asked. Wages are pathetic, and raises are unheard of. If you ever do ask for one, you will probably be frowned upon and told that nobody else in the company got one and that you shouldn't feel that bad. You've been warned, stay away!

    Advice to Management

    You need to value your employees, don't just offer them more money once you burn all the bridges, and they choose a competitor who treats them better. Allow people freedom to do jobs they were hired to do and don't micromanage. Pay a competitive salary if you want to attract and retain good talent.
