    I worked at College des Ingenieurs

    Pros

    the people on the class (fellows) are very bright. some professors give interesting classes but due to time constrains those are very superficial. Nothing positive about the company itself, see cons.

    Cons

    The CDI is a disgresful institution advertising free education and stipends for their students (called fellows) just to exploit and bully young people. The quality of the classes are very low and the topics are covered superficially. Then the fellows are ''sold'' as consultants by to certain affiliated companies for a large amount of money, although the salaries for those consultants are very low. The CDI explains this as the remainder money go into the cost of education. In reality, the CDI is not an educational institution but a bunch of profit-interested individuals. Fellows experience numerous issues, ranging from bullying, harassment and discrimination from the CDI Staff, followed by lack of transparency in all processes, spontaneous and random conflicts between the Staff and the fellows and unjustifiable contract terminations. CDI's only purpose is not to train people, but to take advantage of smart but inexperienced graduates hoping for a better career, all at the promise of free education. That's disgusting! It may seem like a very good opportunity but in reality it is not what it seems. For your own sake, please stay away from them!
