    Pros

    it's somehow an innovative company, it is a big environment so offerts lots of things to learn, it shapes your character

    Cons

    there are not many opportunities for high potential professionals, and higher management positions are often precluded to those starting from the base

    Advice to Management

    they should better recognize talent and create a real meritocratic environment. I have met top managers who showed real attention to resources, while middle management is often not highly qualified

    Pros

    Many new technologies and partners to deal with. A lot of parallel projects to follow. As a young professional, you have the possibility to rapidly increase your skills.

    Cons

    The company is dealing with a strong crysis, and this is reducing employee's salaries and benefits. Work is poorly organised and planned. The average age is very high, and this is a problem when you deal with a lot of new technologies.

    Pros

    There are a lot of benefits you can rely on

    Cons

    Salary is very low, consultants are more important than employers, if they take as a developer, you will not ever write code, the mails are more valuable and important than working, a lot of employees thinks they are like Gods but effectively they are good for nothing. They don't care if you work, the important is that you stay at your place even if you are web-surfing

    Advice to Management

    Use more your inner factory and not take consultants for everything, give value to the inner potential.
