    Former Employee - PLM Consultant in Montreal, QC
    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.

    I have been working at Dassault Systemes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Company produces great products and services
    - Good people to work with
    - Good health benefits
    - Company is striving to be a "Great Place to Work"

    Cons

    - Poor work/life balance
    - Very small yearly pay increases, if any at all
    - Very few opportunities to move up, and when they are given it is given to the manager's "pets"
    - Future is somewhat uncertain because opportunities for the Americas may be limited because France calls all the shots and our opportunities in the future is yet to be known
    - Trying to take vacation time is difficult because it is often denied or management waits until the very last minute to let you know if you can take it
    - You have to use up most or all of your vacation time at times when it is not good for you, because your manager wants you to use up your time and not carry over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Share your vision with employees and let them know that they will be an integral part of future plans
    - Crack down on managers that are preventing employee satisfaction with out dated management styles
    - Give better yearly raises

    Pros

    Dassault Systemes is a real innovative company in which most people like to work! I am part of them.

    Cons

    Maybe few people working in this company seem to see their colleagues as their own competitor. As One company, this should not exist.

    Pay is good and the benefits are good

    Cons

    No scope for growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire trainees only when you really need them. Don't hire talented people out of good colleges and make them do nothing and get rid of them after the contract ends. Please think before you hire.
    yours Sincerely,
    All the trainees you hired in (2013-14) campus drive.
