  1.  

    Bad management and even worse internal procedures. Average salary and benefits for a contracting company.

    I worked at GFI Informatique full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - average salary and benefits
    - good CE (but it couldn't be the case anymore since a few months)
    - good language courses in the package

    Cons

    - Very bad experience with holidays and internal procedures: the rules (I unfortunately discovered late) say "90+ days notice for standard leaves, 7+ days notice for RTT days and up to 30 days after the request to get a positive or negative feedback". You can't basically get days off the first year without a "proper justification".
    - For a 5 days leave I had to wait 3 weeks for a feedback...
    - I also got rejected (after 40 days!) 8 days of unpaid leave for unofficial healthcare reasons, even though I had the approval of the client, I provided a plan of using them in the following 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - improve day by day communication with employees
    - consider relaxing the 90+ days notice constraint for holidays
    - consider allowing the use of holidays as soon as they are accumulated, without any sort of "justification"
    - consider discussing with employees before rejecting few unpaid leaves if justified and approved by the client

    Pros

    C'est une entreprise très conservatrice avec des gens très sympathiques et parfois, des projets intéressants. Excellent endroit si vous ne voulez pas vous investir trop dans votre travail.

    It is a very conservative company with sympathetic people and sometimes, some interesting projects. Great place if you don't want too invest too much in your day work.

    Cons

    Le travail est fait avec une attitude très conservatrice. Les décisions ne sont prises que quand le risque a disparu et qu'il est presque toujours trop tard.
    Les projets sont gâchés par des gens incompétents qui sont en charge.

    The business is done with a very conservative attitude. Decisions are taken only when the risk has disappeared, that is almost always too late.
    The great projects are spoiled by incompetent people that are in charge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Le management devrait prendre un meilleur soin de ses employés, et récompenser en fonction des efforts, sans se limiter aux vendeurs

    The management should take a greater care of the employees, and truely reward according to the effort, not only the sales persons.
