    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (more than a 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

    - Company produces great products and services
    - Good people to work with
    - Good health benefits
    - Company is striving to be a "Great Place to Work"

    Cons

    - Poor work/life balance
    - Very small yearly pay increases, if any at all
    - Very few opportunities to move up, and when they are given it is given to the manager's "pets"
    - Future is somewhat uncertain because opportunities for the Americas may be limited because France calls all the shots and our opportunities in the future is yet to be known
    - Trying to take vacation time is difficult because it is often denied or management waits until the very last minute to let you know if you can take it
    - You have to use up most or all of your vacation time at times when it is not good for you, because your manager wants you to use up your time and not carry over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Share your vision with employees and let them know that they will be an integral part of future plans
    - Crack down on managers that are preventing employee satisfaction with out dated management styles
    - Give better yearly raises

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

    Pros

    Systems and Data are EXTREMELY well organized.

    Cons

    Dassault have a SERIOUS issue with Senior Management (at least in LATAM). People without absolutely no skills whatsoever to manage a company are solidified on their positions.
    It is VERY common to see competent people getting fired or leaving before reaching 1 year in the house.
    People are constantely haressed on their positions and activities. People are stimulated to be offensive and management is CONSTANTELY spreading gossips to turn departments against each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the Managing Director and the BT Director for the region immediately.
    Let HR people do their job.

    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.

    Pros

    Pay is good and the benefits are good

    Cons

    For a technical person there is
    No direction
    No management
    No scope for carrier build up
    No scope for growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire trainees only when you really need them. Don't hire talented people out of good colleges and make them do nothing and get rid of them after the contract ends. Please think before you hire.
    yours Sincerely,
    All the trainees you hired in (2013-14) campus drive.

    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.
