Tell us: What is the French workplace really like?
The traditional image of being an employee in France is certainly an attractive one - long lunches, the whole of August off and a job for life, no matter how badly you mess it up (plus the odd day off on strike every now and again).
But in the 21st century is that really true? We want to know the reality of life in the French workplace, and whether any of those hoary old clichés still persist today.
