    Pros

    wide variety of work, professional office, respectful staff, modern office, good base salary, stable middle management. modern equipment, laptops, cell phones, unimpeeded internet access, easy access to transit, close to post secondary institutions, some educational assistance

    Cons

    complex work, lack of understanding of work complexity by senior management, poor benefits, language barrier, frequent changes in ownership, long work hours, short vacation time, time sheets, senior management makes workers feel that they are machines there to do a job not as individuals with individual needs and concerns. There are few perks for line staff, no subsidy of sports tickets, no arts programme, maternity limited to what is required by government

    Advice to Management

    give all the employees a sense of ownership, by actually giving them ownership, either directly, or via profit sharing.

    Pros

    A lot of varied work. I can't complain about repetition after 3+ years.

    Cons

    Depends on the projects and clients. It wouldn't surprise me they put you in underestimated projects where in the end you'll be working endless hours including weekends with a ridiculous compensation for it.

    Advice to Management

    Estipulate real compensations for those who give up their personal life trying to push the projects forward.

    Pros

    Young and growing company at Spain with a lot of job opportunities.

    Cons

    There isn't a proffesional plan. As many other companies of IT in Spain, company doesn't provide enough proffesional training courses and salaries should be better.

    Pros

    Un bon job pour les fainéants, familles avec enfants ou en pré-retraite. Si vous n'avez pas de grandes attentes, ça devrait aller.

    Cons

    Manque d'entraînement. Extrêmement difficile d'obtenir une augmentation. Et ça n'a pas de relation avec votre performance. L'entreprise ne comprend pas ses employés.

    Pros

    C'est une entreprise de sous-traitance avec ses hauts et ses bas. Le salaire arrive toujours à temps. Des gens sympas travaillent à Sophia Antipolis (pas les managers malheureusement), et à un moment ils avaient un très bon directeur d'agence. De ces jour

    Cons

    C'est une firme de sous-traitance donc ils promettent monts et merveilles pour vous faire signer le contrat. Regardez quelques épisodes de «42ème étage» pour voir comment çà se passe en France. Tout est vrai. Une fois que vous êtes en CDI, vous avez une période de préavis de 3 mois directement, et vous n'allez certainement pas voir votre salaire suivre l'inflation, sans parler d'augmentation. Egalement, votre salaire ne dépend pas de vos résultats ou du feedback des clients. Oubliez les bonus et autres choses en plus du salaire, vous aurez peut-être un cadeau pour noël...d'une valeur de 50 euros.
