    Pros

    if don't want too much pressure and have an inbuilt system to blank the crap that happens in the office ..from senior management ..and the terrible leadership ability of the CEO..then this is good for u.

    Cons

    well these are the events that have happened to give you an idea of the downside... a lot of women have ended up getting fired...or have some issues with the the department CEO....mainly French staff have been promoted...lot of people have been let go after they have tried to voice their views and the CEO did not feel comfortable with that.. senior management do not have good business judgment to make a good call on which projects should move forward and which should be dropped.... Mainly most staff just spend loads of time hating the place which gets you down even more...sorry but this is how most people feel!!

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks.. move out of management and spend time with staff.. be creative..

    Pros

    If you are self motivated, this place provides you ample opportunity to grow professionally, network in the industry provided you are ready to utilize your personal time substantially on top of the working hours!!

    Cons

    -You are measured by number of hours you spent at work and number of times you approach upper management to tell them we are happy at work NOT by how efficiently you can work
    -No clear cut work definition so one can not be rated for performance
    -Hostile telecommute policy
    -Everybody is a project manager and there is no growth unless you become director. Qualification for becoming a director is ability to play extreme politics and want to spend lot of your personal time in doing additional work for company
    -Salaries are not at all at par with industry but once you are with company for more than few years you have good number of personal time off
    -Human Resource dept/person does not know what human resources mean and is not approachable

    Advice to Management

    -Have company briefing at least once a month
    -Have informal employee gathering once a quarter
    -Take anonymous feedback/performance review for upper management
    -Hold HR responsible for their mistakes
    -Have a structured organization where people are rated by performance
    -Encourage and manage telecommute
    -Pay bonuses and salary hikes on time

    Pros

    Ultra casual work place. Jeans every Friday. Plenty of time off, even as a new employee. Supposed great benefits(Haven't used mine yet to say for sure)

    Cons

    Outdated equipment and supplies. High amounts of favoritism in work loads and promotions. Management and staff are stuck with antiquated ideas of how to run a business in the year 2010. Too many people have had the same role with the same people for over 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire young blood, remove the fat that has been left because talent has realized their were better opportunities and better treatment elsewhere. Buy phones and computers that at least compare with what you are selling your customers.

    Unappreciated, overworked, no salary increases (even for cost of living/inflation), management stuck in doing things the old fashioned way

    Pros

    A very good award winning WAN network, lots of honest hard working people with pockets of good skills throughout the firm, and a legitimate contender for leadership of global communication services (voice, video, UC). A big Cisco and Avaya integration shop.

    Cons

    Leadership lacks integrity or accountability to results. French management likes to use words like innovation and vision without having any whatsoever. Complete lack of investments outside France -International is the red headed step child. Highly political environment where your buddy from school matters more than your work, ideas, or merits.

    Advice to Management

    Fire most of yourselves and let the competent people that actually make things run at the client level do their job and stop protecting aweful sales people and mid level managers that are running failing organizations. Develop a strategy execution plan and invest in it rather than claim time to market of 18+ months is acceptable to any real client.

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

    Pros

    Paid time off, ability to work from home

    Cons

    Horrible upper management especially in the West Region also AME's top. Little to no raises even with oustanding performance. Capped commissions. Waste of time kick-off meetings. Cronyism all over. Lack of support in most vital areas - the list goes on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Start over at the regional AME's head and find people who understand customers and employees.
