    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The vision is inspiring, it really is, this company can achieve a great deal and change many things and I really hope specific brands get it together because they have a great deal of experience to utilise

    Cons

    As such a large organisation it's easy to feel like its impossible to ever make a mark, and DS is exactly that place, little people are little people and you will openly be treated that way. Employees hard work and sacrifices are under-appreciated i.e. working away a lot, poor work-life balance. Micro-management is a big thing within specific brands and it's not only detrimental to business but it's detrimental to the respect your employees have - during the most-part of my time and at the end I can say that I lost every ounce of passion and respect I had for this company and became very disillusioned due to the inefficient processes, lack of growth, lack of personal benefits, I could go on for a while..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employee's are your biggest asset, use them to their full potential, challenge them and most of all have some respect for them not only on a professional level but a personal one too.

    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent and the technical people are fun and personable. Depending on the office, the social environment can be really nice (Woodland Hills, CA and Auburn Hills, MI stand out in particular). Also, the CEO is very inspiring - the vision the company is striving for is a strong motivating factor.

    Cons

    Despite the advantages, the environment is highly political - promotion is on the who-you-know basis rather than on competence or professionalism. Really good people are stuck for years is underpaid, undervalued positions with little possibility of moving up.

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people to work with, good benefits.

    Cons

    Global company means working odd hours to allow for time differences sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR has too much power, and the bureaucratic approach in upper management is inefficient.

    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salaries and profit sharing are very interesting.
    The company is large so there are many teams working on various topics which can be interesting to work on various projects without moving to another company.
    The company has offices all around the world (especially R&D and QA in the USA and India) which is great as well.

    Cons

    There is too much hierarchy, not much is decided in the development teams.
    The company is usually a late adopter for technologies, code is still written the old-fashioned way which is frustrating for technology lovers.

    Please, Believe in LATAM

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time

    Pros

    Excellent products, sell by itself. That makes you feel motivated to expand the market and sales to the new segments. The employees are dedicated and feels like part of the company specially when understand what is DS outside LATAM.

    Cons

    The Company processes will not protect you from mood swing or evil politics, Latam has been managed by one person that doesn´t know the customers or partners. There is no perspective of career. The decision of any movement, resignation or promotion of the employees, will not be discussed.

    DS LATAM management will not value your work but a personal opinion. I dedicated more than 10 hours a day for months and reached all goals without any recognition of top management LATAM.

    The fact that the company has not been well scored by BPTW was justified to HQ, by the fact that DS has a French culture and it is hard to apply in LATAM, it is not true. The feeling of the employees is that the bad mood swing of one person is what drives the geography, what makes a complete unstable environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once the LATAM represents around 2% of the global revenue, I suggest making a deep change of the structure and put the LATAM management direct to DS Americas and break this empowerment. The employees will be more motivated and embodied the culture of DS.

    I suggest to implement an Ethic Channel in order to let the information flows without filters.
