    Pros

    Nice environment to work in.
    Lots of talented and interesting people.
    Decent compensation.

    Cons

    Although compensations can be attractive, it is not for everybody. Large disparities are present.
    Investment in ressources necessary to cope with business growth are often done too late, which is detrimental to service quality.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that stellar customer service can only be provided if ressources are adequately scaled and procured in time. This is the cost of customer trust and loyalty.

    I worked at Eutelsat full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had colleagues from all over the world, and a stable salary exceeding in many cases the competition. French work law and a very generous bonus, leave and benefit package. I had the possibility to implement my own working tools, and was given on the job training and working trips whenever I required.

    Cons

    In this southern Europe management style company making right "friends" (someone that you know and can be useful for introducing you to the important or powerful people) are capital. Personal merits and skills are secondary and will not help your career movements.

    Advice to Management

    Eutelsat has enjoyed stable growth since it's beginning, and has balanced successfully between maintaining some of its old traditional europeean public telecom company values, while at the same time implementing agressive growth and investment strategies on a global scale. Invest heavily in value added services, and scrap the current middle management south Europe style as soon as possible.

    I have been working at Eutelsat full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits (high number of annual leaves) are higher than other companies in the same sector (aerospace industry) in France, especially looking at the Technical Department.

    If you want to learn more on the technical side (satellites operations and procurement) is the right place to be.

    Cons

    In the technical Department there is no possibility of a growing career path and changing inside the company is very difficult. You can acquire experiences, new responsibilities in your restricted field, but always remaining in the same position and with the same job title.

    No big incentives if you improve your productivity or if you want to do more. This aspect is more related to the cultural way of thinking and power of the Unions in France. In their opinion, small salary increments for every employee is better than giving increments following merit and productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Try to push more towards innovation, interconnection of the departments, and development of employees. Sometimes (at least in my opinion) salary and benefits cannot compensate everything. It would be better to have more diversification of responsibilities and a better defined and dynamic career path.

    I have been working at Eutelsat full-time

    Pros

    Salaire, primes, participation, intéressement, congés, rtt, mutuelle, tickets restaurant.
    Sur tous ces points, difficile de trouver mieux ailleurs, ce qui fait, que lorsqu'on y est, on y reste.

    Cons

    Comme on ne trouve rien de mieux ailleurs, on y reste. J'y suis depuis dix ans. L'innovation, la prise de risque n'est pas encouragée, les managers sont frileux et se distribuent les meilleurs postes , et le plus gros des stock options entre eux. Les demandes de mobilité interne sont mal vues.

    Advice to Management

    Encore un effort, vous avez réussi à innover par le passé avec le protocole disecq, vous pouvez faire mieux que des gadgets comme le smartbeam.

    Advice to Management

    Valoriser TOUS les postes
