    Former Employee - PLM Consultant in Montreal, QC

    I worked at Dassault Systemes full-time

    Pros

    - Exposure to PLM products such as CATIA, ENOVIA, etc. heavily used in many fields of engineering
    - Friendly and supportive teammates
    - Possibility to travel and consult at different customers worldwide, if interested
    - Great office location near metro station (in Old Montreal)

    Cons

    - Low pay compared to industry standards
    - Very high turnover in the Engineering department. If you have a background in Mechanical Engineering, you might not stay very long in the company, unless you are willing to change departments and/or willing to work more in the IT/computer engineering field (since it's a software company).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the strategy of the Engineering department; it's bleeding out.

    Pros

    Great location down town, friendly environment. Most managers and supervisors are open and approachable.

    Cons

    Company is taking advantage of interns, paying minimum salary.
    All administrative, non management positions are very underpaid.
    Management is hiding behind all those complex HR policies, 50-page presentations with graphs and calculations that make no sense and only purpose of which is not to give you salary increase. They do appreciate your hard work and accomplishments, you might even get an award of some sort, but don't expect a decent salary increase.

    Nice company but not might be the best for technology lovers

    Current Employee - Ingénieur Développement Logiciel in Vélizy-Villacoublay (France)

    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salaries and profit sharing are very interesting.
    The company is large so there are many teams working on various topics which can be interesting to work on various projects without moving to another company.
    The company has offices all around the world (especially R&D and QA in the USA and India) which is great as well.

    Cons

    There is too much hierarchy, not much is decided in the development teams.
    The company is usually a late adopter for technologies, code is still written the old-fashioned way which is frustrating for technology lovers.

    Doesn't Recommend
