    I have been working at Vinci full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can get great responsabilities even if you have few experience.

    Cons

    Typical French group : too many decision takers, few decisions...
    It's possible having initiatives in Vinci, as long as you don't expect to see them employed.
    There is a lack of formating : noone has the sensation of being part of one group except of a constellation of small companies forced to live together.

    Advice to Management

    Clear and assumed Real Estate Strategy remains to be built...

    I worked at Vinci as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - A lot of people are willing to help you learn
    - As an intern, work-life balance is easily manageable
    - Competitive salary/benefits as an intern
    - Eager and motivated candidates are easily scouted

    Cons

    - Lack of proper specific mentoring
    - Just another cog in the system
    - Politics at upper management level inevitably trickles down

    Advice to Management

    Young recruits are more often than not willing to put in the extra effort - management should channel that by nurturing new talent and showing they do care (follow up, mid internship assessment, career orientation interviews...)

    Pros

    Team work is the law for all involved in.
    High company references level gives it high opportunities to carry out exciting construction projects.
    Community of VCGP employees is gravitating arround the world from a project to another, reinforcing company strength by its 'embedded network'.

    Cons

    Free time consuming.
    Better challenge positions at competitor's.
    Difficult balance between private and professional life
    Too much independance may lead to engage ourself (and others) on wrong path.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of what is being learned by junior management, as current juniors are tomorrow's seniors.
    This is the best, most efficient and affordable way to elevate company skills to undertake challenging projects.

    Bon salaire, les equipes sont agreables et une bonne ambiance regne malgre le stress de la remise des clefs du chantier

    Cons

    Horaires de la prise de service. Mauvaise volonté de la part des sous traitants sur le chantier. La comdition de stagiaire ne facilite pas l'autorité face aux ouvriers.

    Advice to Management

    Engager le bon nombre de stagiaires pour les bonnes branches travaux pour eviter le sur effectifs sur certain corps de metier
