    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 worked at Dassault Systemes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing products, which is easy to fascinate customers! Lot of good stuffs if you are based in France or in the US.

    Cons

    Although it's part of a Global organization, it's look like a small family business sometimes. If you have a good network, with the right people, your chances to growth are higher. The local management is like a little kingdom, only the king's friends are rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In other IT companies if the local management does not achieve its goals two or three years in a row, it is changed. HQ take a look on this and put prepared people to accept the challenge and help to grow the business.

    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.
