    Pros

    Benefit sucks. Abusive hostil management, nothing possigive to say about this company

    Cons

    Negative and hostil environment, arrogant a lot of incompetent managament HR useless and clueless very desorganize and no room to grow they only promote french no americans but sure love our money. Union sucks.

    Advice to Management

    None, to arrogant and dont care about their employees or the company only the bottom line for them selves all they doing is damaging the image and the hard work the owner made to be where they are. Is a shame. No values or integrity.

    I worked at JCDecaux full-time

    Pros

    Honestly I have no pros for this company at all I hated working here

    Cons

    Everyone is extremely clicky and catty new people are not welcome. There are the people that have worked there for years there are about 5 of them and then the rest of the company is a revolving
     door in and out every six months . If you like materialistic stuck up people this is the place for you to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop picking favorites and treat everyone equally!

    Pros

    They allow and encourage creativity and people to work "outside of the box". Flexible work schedule and environment. In my position I am able to decide what to do and where I need to devote my energies with little distraction from management. Management is supportive of all employess and genuinely care about their health and well being. Company continues to look at ways to improve in matters of the environment.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on e-mail as primary communication tool within the company vs. picking up the phone and talking to each other. Inter-company communication is too impersonal. Certain departments are overstaffed while others are under staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Staff all departments accordingly.

    Family business and fantastic values - important that everyone remembers this and consistently apply throughout the business.

    I have been working at JCDecaux full-time

    Pros

    I think it's a good atmosphere, it's a place that rewards hard work and talent. I think the two new CEOs are trying to change things for the better and do listen to staff. I would recommend this company as a great place for people willing to grasp the opportunity.

    Cons

    It is trying to change, but it still is quite corporate. I guess if you want to work at a company with beanbags and table tennis tables, then this won't be for you.

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded. Varied role, never a dull moment. Good staff. Opportunities for travel.
    Employee welfare is generally good, and taken seriously. Annual Bonus scheme. annual medical.

    Cons

    Average pay is relatively low. Late, out of hours working is often expected. Not a lot of inter department harmony.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay levels across the board to meet industry standards. CEO's seem very distant if you are outside of London, maybe visit the other regions?

    I worked at JCDecaux full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Brand name, size of business, top of their game in out of home, some great people.

    Cons

    Poor salary, huge churn, stayed management, poor internal employee engagement from the top down, staff underpaid hugely, general sense of exploitation once you're in, it can feel like you're selling your soul sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people based on the market, treat people fairly, have a learning and development team, ensure teams are properly resourced so they can actually do their jobs.
