A company with potential but lacks focus on what it should truly be doing
IT (Former Employee), WalthamJune 10, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: lots of micromanaging, work environment has become very poor, management picks favorites and treats others poorly
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.

What would you give up for a steady pay check?
Product Side (Current Employee), Waltham, MASeptember 11, 2013
Pros: health benefits, philanthropy opportunities, beautiful building, free beverages
Cons: pay scale, dictatorial and exclusive management style, no upward movement
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
Pros: new office building
Cons: open office space, very hard to work in
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.
