    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".

    Pros

    Large Company, latest technology, global reach and opportunities. A great company to work for if you are starting your career.

    Cons

    Being large has it's downsides. Orange Business Services is a subsidiary of France Telecom, a large, bloated, publicly-owned utility with very little flexibility and rigid business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees better than you currently do. Make management decisions based upon not just financial considerations. Improve your internal intranet - it is rubbish.

    I have been working at Orange full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Orange is a French company, provides good vacation allowance, good colleagues and co-working relationships. Good networking opportunities and support for conference attendance.

    Cons

    Orange's compensation is not on par for San Francisco, measuring against corresponding roles in competing telecom companies, limited growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more direct communication and collaboration with France. Better benefits at work, look to other San Franciscan tech companies for examples.

    I worked at Orange as an intern

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, nice work place
    Typical Bay area start up atmosphere (very different from Orange in France apparently)
    Creativity

    Cons

    Orange is headquartered in France: decisions take time
    Projects are not always very stable, but that s common in R&D

    Advice to Management

    More pressure sometimes might be useful and might make employees more effective
