    I worked at Orange full-time

    Pros

    Benefit packages are better than most. Flex time and remote working - both are a big plus!

    Cons

    NAM employees have little room for growth. Management states that they are updating and changing but no matter how many times they shuffle, it's the same old, same old. Orange renames and recycles everything. Also, pay scale differs from desk to desk for the same assignment, there is no standard.

    Advice to Management

    New blood needed. With each redundancy Orange has lost major knowledge when employees are cut. Managers never move. They are never cut, they never change. Company is too top heavy. Review pay scales and bring everyone into a common window.

    Pros

    Great people, creative approach to services, very good benefits and vacation policy, truly global capabilities that are difficult to match in the industry.

    Great people and nice environment. I really enjoyed working there. Because it is a French company, it has French work ethic.

    Cons

    For my department, there were a lot of young people, not a strong leadership.

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    Benefits got expensive over last year, little chance for promotion outside of NYC and Atlanta, training budget reduced greatly over last few years

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

    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".
