    Pros

    Great employees. Best PTO rules: up to 35 days if you stick with it long enough. Good systems and processes, however see cons...

    Cons

    Human resources absolutely unappreciated unless they are cheap. Quality of work and experience does not count. Its all about doing in cheap, cheaper and cheapest. Systems replace people wherever possible; the remaining jobs go into cheap labor countries. Lots of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Remember off and on your employees and staff: they worked their butts off for you and are kicked into the curb when considered too expensive, i.e. based in a first world country outside of France...

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

    Pros

    great PTO, ability to telework 2xs a week

    Cons

    long hours, horrible pay and recongintion for all the work, downsizing and offshoring at an alarming rate

    Advice to Management

    invest in the US not just in Europe. Actually listen to staff / the troops spilling blood in the US to make the company a profit.

    I worked at Orange as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A nice variety of free coffee. They are flexible with start times. There are a lot of dining options nearby. The technology used isn't bad but is becoming dated fast.

    Cons

    It is supposed to be an Agile shop but really isn't. Poor planning on their part results in you working extra hours. Management likes to make sure everyone is working hard by pushing random deadlines.

    At one point the code base was not bad but has gotten to be very cumbersome.

    The turnover rate with consultants seems to be very high. They also let you know that they will fire you if they are unhappy with your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat people better.

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

    Pros

    Most of the employees left here in the US are able to work from home.

    Cons

    There is no investment from Orange into their employees. They do noting to help further our career, They have continued to pill more work load on the staff that is left and do not give any training. The company has become heavily involved in ITIL. Even though you continue to pass every level of ITIL, the only added benefit, will be to hopefully keep your job. It has gotten so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Go ahead and finish shutting down operations in the US.
