    Pros

    Being a global company, Equant represents many opportunities for career growth as well as the potential for travel and international relocation. Equant is a highly regarded service provider within their customer base and the telecoms market as a whole and has a relatively low turnover based on the benefits and work environment.

    Cons

    There are no real standout issues associated with working for Equant other than the challenges of working in a competitive industry. This however is also one of the biggest upsides is that no particular day is ever the same.

    Advice to Management

    Always be focused on providing feedback to employees and ensuring that all have the opportunity to build a career path.

    Pros

    Orange is a global company, very innovative we work on cutting edge technology. Very confortable atmosphere to work in. The lab has a unique history and now appears to be more insightful about the skillsets that are needed to become a world reknowned lab and they are moving to that end.

    They are a very stable company and are still on track for paying bonuses and merit increases which is very positive since many companies doing this economic down turn cannot financially afford to do this.

    Cons

    France Telecom does offer mobility and career advancement but you have to be willing to move to Europe.

    Getting approvals from the parent company in France can be timely and unfortunately we all have to suffer because of the timeliness issue which is quite normal for companies who have there parent company in another country..

    Some of the downsides are that many of the employees there have worked there for some time and have adopted very negative demotivating attitudes that unfortunately effect the morale of others..

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with staff by having more frequent meetings

    Pros

    FT in North America was a great place to work because management really seemed to be appreciative of the talent that they had on board.

    Cons

    While FT in North America, New York office was a really wonderful place to work, unfortunately, the New York office has closed. Too bad!

    Advice to Management

    FT in North America was a really, really great place to work. At some point in the future, it could make sense to reconsider re-opening a New York office.

    I worked at Orange full-time

    Pros

    Orange is a great company to work for! Unlike other American based telecom companies, they are dedicated to their culture and values. Work/life balance is not simply touted by management- it is a reality that makes Orange a great place to work for those that need the flexibility. Wherever you are in your career, Orange is the place to grow and advance to the next level in the global telecom industry.

    Cons

    The company is very bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    The bureaucracy within the company needs to be addressed. Unlike other telecoms, Orange has an amazing, dedicated workforce that truly believes in their company and wants to see its success. Help them realize this success by making it easier to deliver results.
