    I worked at Carrefour full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some big company expertise. Chance to work with different functional teams.

    Cons

    Toxic culture. You don’t matter. Your nationality matters. Do not expect being treated equally. Certain French envoys even come with a mentality that they are kings and keep disgusting you when you do not make them feel like kings. Uncompetitive package. Offer you a package slightly a bit higher than the market in the beginning and 0 yearly growth afterwards. Obsolete infrastructure, network and systems that largely...

          I have been working at Carrefour full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          It's a big company, known in many countries, with a huge structure. There are a lot to learn all the time, everything changes really fast, the work doesn't get bored.

          Cons

          Despite the fact they say we use Scrum, the company doesn't know how to work with it, everything is taken as a regular project, what makes the product life really hard. The company doens't offer many benefits.

          I have been working at Carrefour full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          It's better then I hoped when I joined the company. The team is great, paycheck is good, a lot of benefits. The HR department and the people working there are awesome, really focused on the well-being and the improvement of the employee. Working hours are respected, overtime is payed, and working remotely one day per week is just great.

          Cons

          A lot of departments with a lot of managers, directors, chiefs of something etc and a lot of egos. Some processes are very slow and sometimes impossible to change due to company size and inherent bureaucracy of an old company. Some people have, surprisingly, so little in common with their job titles.

          Advice to Management

          Focus on new technologies and bring specialists that will allow the company to evolve.
