    I have been working at Airbus Group

    Pros

    They had some cool products at one time

    Cons

    They do not care about their employees...HR runs the show here...for the company NOT the staff. Any vision the R&D management team had is gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out the antiquated "everybody is afraid of HR" mentality and breath some new ideas into this organization. Your employees don't owe you anything more than 40 hours a week. ..treat them like garbage and you'll get garbage.

    I worked at Airbus Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The salary was decent there I suppose.

    Cons

    Management has no clue. They have laid off and sold off most all assets and infrastructure with a reorganization plan to peruse business that they have no experience or expertise. Although some have been there for quite sometime, senior level management is the most under experienced technically and business of any company I have ever worked for.... good luck........

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to cover your own ass and back stabbing others....

    Pros

    As you can see they change their name and piggyback on their other divisions work, very creative

    Cons

    Bad management, work to recent quarters number and expect layoffs. Unethical management. Benefits below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can run and hide Cassidian but your still the same bad company.

    Pros

    Worthy cause. Ethical & hard-working employees.

    Cons

    Current management is driving the company into the ground. Jack would not be happy about what has happened to his loyal employees and about the impact on the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees know when management cares (about them, product quality, and customers) and when they don't. If you can't care, go management another company!

    I have been working at Airbus Group (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great product. Good people. Non management still care. Casual attire. Flexible hours. Benefits are just okay. Not much else to add to this.

    Cons

    CEO clueless. Upper management clueless. HR useless. Low morale. Internal conflicts. Too much politics and games. No long term vision. Only temporary fixes. No direction. No real leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point. Useless to try. Falls on deaf ears.

    I worked at Airbus Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are the only pros. If you can get past dreading to come to work.

    Cons

    If you take the amount of hours they expect you to work and divide that into your salary, the pay isn't that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit telling people that they have to put up with upper management's condescending attitude. Morale can be torn down quicker than it will take to build it back up.

    Pros

    Great business, helping people. Not much else to say, can't even meet 20 word minimum, so I am rambling.

    Cons

    Dishonest Management, tells you one thing then does the opposite. Company ran to current quarters numbers, not meeting numbers, expect layoffs to follow, very narrow sighted. No loyalty to employees, expect to be thrown under the bus for managements' mistakes. Benefits are not good. Expect long hours no reward or recognition. Products have grown long in the tooth and are falling behind, and don't expect upgrades to happen quickly with cutbacks in R&D. I expect anyone going to consider working for this company are desperate. Any positive reviews on this company are from HR. Would rate this company a quarter star if glassdoor allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake your heads, you think the previous management was a farce, you are going to be challenging them soon for this companies demise. Gets some balls and stand up to the parent company.

    I worked at Airbus Group (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule; worked with talented individuals; worked on products that are used to save lives.

    Cons

    You know the old saying “too many chiefs, not enough Indians.” Leadership team takes no responsibility for their constant mismanagement. Not quite sure why they have an HR department. They’re worthless. No communication!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Stop setting unrealistic deliverable dates. Stop blaming R&D for not meeting those dates.

    Pros

    Co-workers still care about the important things.

    Cons

    Management is clueless about what make us successful in the past and how to now recapture that success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and care about more than just quarterly profits.
