Current Employee - Programmer
Current Employee - Programmer

Pros

wide variety of work, professional office, respectful staff, modern office, good base salary, stable middle management. modern equipment, laptops, cell phones, unimpeeded internet access, easy access to transit, close to post secondary institutions, some educational assistance

Cons

complex work, lack of understanding of work complexity by senior management, poor benefits, language barrier, frequent changes in ownership, long work hours, short vacation time, time sheets, senior management makes workers feel that they are machines there to do a job not as individuals with individual needs and concerns. There are few perks for line staff, no subsidy of sports tickets, no arts programme, maternity limited to what is required by government

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give all the employees a sense of ownership, by actually giving them ownership, either directly, or via profit sharing.

    Former Employee - Systems and Network Administrator in Lisbon (Portugal)

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits.
    Strong and Stable company, reliable.
    Has strong partners in both the public and private sector, so you will get a job guaranteed in the most prominent players in the market.
    Good Work-Life Balance.
    People are nice to work with.
    A Good training and certification program in place

    Cons

    The lack of projects made me staying with the company no longer possible.
    Promotions are hard to get and raises based on merit and performance are non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the good work you are doing in making this company big, however keep an eye on the workforce and invest in designing an effective career planning program. The most common question made in Interviews is: Where are you planning to be 5 years from now.. Just think about the answer carefully and don't stop asking this question after the interview.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst  in  Paris (France)
    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Paris (France)

    Pros

    Strong partnerships with Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and the big players in general
    Opportunity to work on the latest technological trends (eg. cloud computing, mobility)
    Large array of possible functions and responsibilities
    Good customer base (public sector, industry, banks, ...)

    Cons

    Profit-driven but too short-sighted; no clear long-term strategy
    Unstable management, lack of leadership
    If and when you find your place in the machine, expect to remain there for a while
    No real consulting offer (mostly because of lack of profitability)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business seems good but positioning should be clearer (to customers and employees alike); stop trying to revive activities you've never been good at
