      Done my best work there. There used to be a lot of smart engineers to collaborate with.

      Pros

      Good people to work with, innovative, excellent pay.

      Cons

      HR has been lacking for some time due to poor leadership. No real programs in place to develop, engage, and connect people. Feels more like "check the box".

      Best Hidden Ungem

      Sep 9, 2020 - Senior Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      If you ever wanted to work for a patent troll or a lawyer, well, your dreams have come true and you have arrived at the perfect place. Just look at the management, this company is For Lawyers, By Lawyers.

      Cons

      This company replaces staff ~ 3 years, unless you are lucky enough to be an old timer and have friends, to be around for two decades. No vision, strategy and hence no job stability. Likely that all future layoffs will be in US since that is hard to do in France. Most of the work is to put some ideas on paper but pretty disconnected from technical work in real life. This company will be irrelevant in a few years and most probably won’t exist next decade.
