    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...

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Working in Orange has the prestige of an international, market leading, innovative, fast moving organization. Products are usually first to market, research subjects are always forward looking and very relevant.

    Cons

    This is a conglomerate. Things done at the corporate / group level are slow to propagate to the country opcos. Cultural differences may favor lowest common denominator decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline research to product impact. Engage more local teams with international research and innovation. But, keep investing in research and innovation as this is pulling everyone up.

    I worked at Orange full-time

    Pros

    Global reach, multi-cultural and work environments. Fantastic exposure to world-wide values and experience at business as well as personal levels

    Cons

    As in all large companies, work responsibilities could become static. It is the employee's responsibility to continually search for new responsibilities and roles to expand their experience, and to provide added value. Not necessarily a bad thing, but may not be good for everyone.
