    Pros

    Tele travaille Nice canteen Center location in Paris Beautiful building

    Cons

    -Company not stable, they often don’t renew CDD contracts. -poor salary for the role and the volume of work they expect you to do! Too low salary for Paris lifestyle. - Favouritisme - Looks good to start with, but don’t trust the appearance, they make you believe that “you are part of the lovely and amazing family” and then you are out from one day to another without a reasonable explanation. -Very demanding but in return no holiday ( hard to get them easily), no flexibility, no bonus, no pay rise no carrier prospective, not many RTT. I’m personally disappointed, i had invest much on them and it turns out to be a bad surprise!

    I worked at BlaBlaCar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The office is in the center of Paris. The workspace is cozy. You can make some good friends there because there's few peer pressure and competition. The work life balance is good enough. The company had a good reputation in europe and it helps you build your CV.

    Cons

    The management is awful. Only a few managers are able to give guideline to help employees to grow. No yearly bonus, the promotion process and salary raise is implicite. A lot of excellent engineers went away.
