What is health insurance like at JCDecaux?

Pros

The bathrooms are well-designed. Location is ok, if you live in the city. The best thing is probably the view from any window. It's also stable. The company is actively trying to shift its focus and attract new talent, but that isn't translating well over to the States. It'll get better, eventually. It really is trying, and it shows. While still behind socially, it's making progress.

Cons

Keep in mind, this isn't company-wide, but specific to certain teams. Specifically, let's focus on IT. All of these points are worth reading, don't just skim. - Stupidly low pay for where the company is. Help desk gets 30-40k in the heart of Manhattan, admins 50-70k. - Expensive health insurance - Massive turnover. Entire departments leave. It's incredible. - Penny-pinching, for some reason. Not like this company makes billions world-wide. - Micro-management, but still somehow accomplishing being aloof. What a skill. - Salaried employees are treated with zero understanding or comprehension of what the word, "flexible" means - Animosity to change. They will retaliate quite brutally. - Incorrect or jumbled job duties, that then aren't even what the person was hired to do. Engineers and admins get phone calls from end users, it's distracting and pathetic. The director, does, too. End users. Calling the director. To reset passwords. -Management lies. No training budgets, but you'll be told they exist. You'll never see a cent of it. You'll ask, but be given excuses. - Arbitrary hours, you're there to just... exist. 15 min late? Email the entire team your shame. In my time here, I've learned few new skills and my existing expertise is ignored flat out. This is a company that wants to change how its people feel, but doesn't want to change how it treats them or what technologies it uses. It is stuck.

Advice to Management

Stop micromanaging so hard, you're not going to win an award for it. You already had people leaving in droves, and sorry to say, they'll continue unless you figure it out. On the other hand, learn how to lead, being overly aloof is also a huge problem. Get with the times. You've stagnated!

- Expensive health insurance

How are the career development opportunities at JCDecaux?

Pros

global company, interesting industry, approachable CEO (AUS), employment benefits

no career development plans, career advancement is difficult and promotions seem random and often based on relationship with manager rather than work performance. Sales-centered processes and company goals mean that if you are not working in sales you get less perks, recognition etc.

Implement career planning strategies and be more transparent on internal advancement opportunities. More management training for better employee experience.
