    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    The company takes a long term view on it position, solutions and strategy. Making sure to stay relevant and on the leading edge of technology.

    Cons

    the outside position of the company is not entirely reflected inside. the company has struggled to use new technologies to make working here efficient. There have been improvements but there is still a lot to be done. Not such a bad thing if you like a dynamic work environment

    Pros

    - 9 weeks of vacations per year.
    - Skilled colleagues often willing to help and collaborate, which means that there are good opportunities to learn.
    - Interesting projects related to 3D, engineering, CAD, FEA, PLM, etc.
    - Global company with opportunities to work abroad and collaborate with foreign people.
    - 30 years old company backed by the Dassault family - it won't be bought anytime soon.
    - 2 billions/year company.
    - Double digits growth company.

    Cons

    - Wage significantly lower than average compared to similar companies, for computer engineering jobs.
    - Domain experts (e.g. mechanical engineers, system engineers) and managers are ways more recognized than technical experts (e.g. software engineers).
    - Aging processes and tools (e.g. waterfall).
    - Very strict hierarchy and politics at the higher levels (M1, M2, M3).
    - People tend to believe that Dassault Systèmes is a weapon-company! In reality, Dassault Systèmes' products are more used to create cars, civil planes, and bottles of shampoo than for the defense industry.

    Advice to Management

    IF WE are happy at work, we will deliver high value to our customers and become even more profitable.

    Pros

    The pay is great. I have easy access to my manager and even the director. The company culture is an excellent fit for me; I enjoy the work environment in tech companies. It is calm for the most part, but can be fast-paced if needed.

    Cons

    Sometimes, there can be no work to do, or the work is not challenging enough.

    Advice to Management

    None, really.

    Pros

    Compared to a typical Japanese company, at least we get larger desks, more casual hours, and the ability to take a long vacation.

    Cons

    But it really is very inflexible company with almost no career path or growth path for anyone. It has a we-are-just-a-branch-office-so-why-dream-big kind of feel to it.

    Advice to Management

    You have way too many rigid, inflexible HR people. Dump the whole lot and start over if you want to have anything dramatic happen

  11. A large organisation with siloed businesses.

    Pros

    Reasonable salary, close nit team, travel and no need to worry about justifying work related expenses. Access to manager and welcomed as a family member

    Cons

    Too much travel and isolated offices. Low level of communication. Planning always seemed rushed.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time directing and objectives for the local teams
