    Pros

    Great enginering company to work with when you are crazy about high tech products. Lot of smart people in there and a real pleasure to work with them.

    Cons

    Very political especially within the head management. Seems to be a company where is good to be for a short period of time, and then move and create your own start-up.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better attention to your people, they are not only pawns. Majority are fantastic people, dedicated to their company.

    Pros

    A growing company that gives you the potential to learn a lot about the technologies being used. Other engineers are generally good to work with and are willing to collaborate.

    Cons

    Some disorganization in the company. Things are not always clear and transparent as they should be. Depends somewhat on your manager thought as well.

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

    Pros

    Bonne ambiance avec des équipes jeunes, des projets sympas et innovants, situé dans Paris. On a aussi des possibilités de changer rapidement de postes en interne si on est efficace dans nos postes

    Cons

    Un top management trop investi dans les choix technologiques alors qu'ils ne sont plus à la page techniquement + la considération qu'on est purement du bétail par eux : manque d'humanité (alors que la taille de l'entreprise devrait permettre l'inverse)

    Advice to Management

    Redevenir humain, apprendre à réécouter les choix et propositions des équipes techniques, ré-apprendre à se remettre en question

    Pros

    Un CEO visionnaire, beaucoup d'énergie dans les équipes

    Cons

    Plus qu'une organisation, c'est un réseau incroyable de compétences -> il faut donc être très patient pour pouvoir en comprendre les rouages et arriver à les utiliser

    Pros

    mutuelle (bonne ?), remboursement d'une partie de l'abonnement à des sports, ticket resto 9€, management pas à cheval sur les horaires, projets intéressant et Parrot Day

    Cons

    management (trop?) jeune mais si ca à l'air de savoir ce que ca fait, il faut être plus qu'agile dans les changements de priorités.
