    I have been working at Orange full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, about a month off a year, health benefits are still generous, as are 401k

    Cons

    There are two Orange's, the French employees and everyone else. Right now the business is going through a transition and layoffs and buyouts have been happening a lot for the past few years. Older workforce, , and not much incentive to change that.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire younger employees, and do things that would actually keep them. As one of about 10 under 30 employees brought on about 6yrs ago, only three of us are left. This is partly due to management, compensation, and work environment.

    Pros

    Orange was certified a Top Employer Global 2017. This is the second consecutive year the company has received this commendation, which rewards the best policies and practices in human resources. This year, 30 countries and territories that Orange operates in across five continents, including through B2B entity Orange Business Services, successfully applied for the certificate.

    Cons

    No clear career path
    There are many different review sites on which employees, candidates, and trainees can give their opinion on a company.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, especially paid-time off. Flexible teleworking policy. Work can extend to any region of the world which makes many of the jobs very interesting.

    Cons

    Decision-making is quite slow as many decisions are made via the HQ in France. Career paths are not well defined and advancement is not easy.

    I worked at Orange full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    the work environment was very relaxed, meeting a lot of great people to work with. Management i good too, except for HR - very lost, slows everything down and are not cut out for the job. Salary is pretty good

    Cons

    Moral can be low at times and can be overwhelming. CEO focuses a lot of what others think (corporate in France) however he is very smart and has a focus.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of HR and do more things to genuinely boost moral of the team. There is a lot of room here.

    Many client facing roles, wonderful balance of work-home, great flexibility to telecommute, outstanding collaboration with global teams and amazing exposure with global clients, strong technology portfolio exposure, monthly mobile phone compensation

    Invest in employees for training, build a mentorship program and continue to communicate openly on the next steps for the organization

    I have been working at Orange full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good, highly-skilled people to work with. A large culturally-diverse company that offers numerous opportunities to improve your skills and grow your career. Successful employees can move within the company, and gain international experience.

    Cons

    Orange is an international business, but is very Euro-centric when it comes to management and product development. Global decisions with local impact in the regions are often made with limited understanding of need of, and impact on, local markets. Who you know can be more important than what you do, or have done.

    Advice to Management

    Engage more effectively with, and listen to, mid-management in the international community. Be prepared to take some risk, and invest outside of Europe. Rather than just "talking global", Orange needs to go back to "acting global".
