    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.

    Pros

    Dassault Systemes is a real innovative company in which most people like to work! I am part of them.

    Cons

    Maybe few people working in this company seem to see their colleagues as their own competitor. As One company, this should not exist.

    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 5 years)

    Pros

    Leading edge technology company and fantastic growth opportunities. Increasing pace of M&A
    Nurture innovation (it is in company's DNA) and allow employees to promote their own ideas
    Great work place (location, facilities) despite poor public transport connections
    Good compensation (advantageous profit sharing plan) and amazing perks (social & cultural activities) in France
    Depending on your organization department, work time and management pressure is good, acceptable or horrible
    Talented and passionate people; intellectually stimulating

    Cons

    Despite worldwide activity, too much French centric and French work culture (meeting-holics, difficult to make decisions, arrogant). Need more multicultural management to become a true global group.
    No Human Resources strategy - top management is far far away from level of expectation for such a performing and innovating company facing so many challenges. Top-down approach, no listening and lack of care. Top managers are very well rewarded, but profits less distributed to employees (CEO is usually within the top 3 highest compensation in France)
    Incredibly poor project management: unbelievable in an engineers' company.
    Lack of consideration or service for customers; too much focused on internal challenges. Wishing so hard to be unique and ahead of competitors tends sometimes to stupid behaviors and wasted resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect work-life balance for your employees
    offer employees with career opportunities and professional development, rather than rough staff management
    improve consideration and listening for employees. Prepare the company generation change empowering youngsters (resistance to change old-fashioned management style). This is at the opposite of the company's products and markets.
