    I worked at Eiffage full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Big talk on social media(expert marketers)

    Cons

    1) Micromanaging senior management 2) Employees viewed as resources(they will dump you the minute the project is over!This also creates an illusion that the company is in growth mode and on a hiring spree!) 3)Do not pay suppliers on time(good luck getting the goods you'd need in the field) 4)Do not expect to go far in your career over here(there are lots of other companies that would offer you serious growth... opportunities, this one is not it!) 5) I would not recommend this company to any potential candidate considering employment opportunities. 6)You do not have to take my word for it. Join here and find out for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    What advice do you give management that only sees their way on the highway? Good luck with your 'hiring young' and staffing the departments with overseas interns policy! Its only a matter of time when the government agencies would learn about your hiring practices.

    Authonomy, decentralization, a lot of space for personal initiatives

    Pros

    They give quickly high responsibilities, once they checked your capabilities.

    Not so much focused on the international projects, but it is changing after change of direction/management teams.

    Focus more on the international projects, because the company has all the necessary knowledge/capabilities.
