Great place to work
Senior Business Process Analyst (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MADecember 14, 2016
I reversed commuted to work from Cambridge to Waltham each morning by subway and then a shuttle provided by Dassault Systemes. It was an easy commute which took about 45 minutes in total without driving in traffic. It's wasn't the same as living in NYC but it was great. Loved working for the company.
Pros
Great benefits, able to balance work/life easily, great people to work with

Large French Company
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MAFebruary 9, 2015
No room for growth. Positions are not developed, people are not trained. Management not up-to-date on latest technology, and only serves their own needs. Poor communication and technology platforms across large company.
Pros
Seemed like a beautiful company, but woefully lacking in employee development and morale.
Cons
Managers who were promoted were not always the best people to manage people.

A company with potential but lacks focus on what it should truly be doing

Dassault has the potential to do some very good things but is too focused on fads. Management is poor and cares little for its employees.
Pros
excellent benefits

lots of micromanaging, work environment has become very poor, management picks favorites and treats others poorly

What would you give up for a steady pay check?
Product Side (Current Employee) –  Waltham, MASeptember 11, 2013
Theres nothing wrong with collecting a steady paycheck, good benefits and working 8-5. The question is: are you willing to sacrifice career growth, upward movement and respect for it? Can you bear to watch experienced and intelligent people suffer the same fate on a daily basis? Here it is in a nut shell...

10,000 person company ruled by a small circle of upper echelon executives at the headquarters in Velizy. Their leader requires everyone adhere to his grand vision and institutes mandatory brand management meetings with the executive team every six weeks to ensure no one deviates from the master plan. He and his vision come first. Customers and employees a distant second.

They wish to be viewed as innovative and forward thinking. This public portrayal is anything but true.

Plans are crafted months in advance, kept close to the chest and handed down through the ranks on a need to know basis. There's no room for input or discussion. Everything is dictated. That's the management style. Discussion is not an option. Forget what your role is on a product is or how long you and your customer base have committed themselves. The worst part is that at the end of the day, achieving objectives and goals is irrelevant because your position and salary are weighted by a complex and calculated system that seeks to control and stifle your growth.

Don't like how things work? Then either get with the program or leave. They make no bones about it and have said so in no uncertain terms.

Engineering company with marketing focus
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  MAJuly 21, 2013
A company with a lot of engineers from different backgrounds and cultures. The various product lines compete for resources and are cobbled together to make for a confusing mess for their customers. Bosses in US have hands tied by offshore management. A typical work day was being constantly interrupted, and trying to please bosses who did not value employee contributions. Feedback to management from employees was ignored, and customers suffered.
Pros
New office building
Cons
Open office space, very hard to work in
