    Pros

    Great benefits, educational opportunities, challenging work assignments and recognition for success. Fellow employees are dedicated to the work and have a strong understanding of how their jobs contribute to the success of the business. Bonuses are paid out to all employees quarterly when performance thresholds are achieved.

    Cons

    Too many levels of management at the group and corporate levels, other than that this is a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but reduce some of the redundant management structure at the group level and above.

    I can't really think of anything negative. There used to be poor performers around but the company has dealt with those people recently.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully management will keep making positive changes

    Pros

    Very dynamic engineering, with emphasis on innovation and systemic project management.

    Cons

    Not much on these, maybe the same dynamic aspect can drive sometime to un-managed change.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to intern at Thales, and had an amazing experience. Everyone I worked with was cognizant of the fact that I was here to learn, and the work I was given focused on that. I was given a wide variety of tasks that gave me hands on experience in the lab as well as lots of time on CAD programs.

    The hours were great and flexible, and the workload was never too much. My managers were also very good about vacation time and sick days.

    I learned a ton and would work there again in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    I didn't have many concerns or problems while working at Thales. It took a long time to get resources that were required to move forward in a project, and the IT request had to be escalated fairly high up the command chain in order to prioritize it. Other than that everything was great.
