Ok place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at AgustaWestland

ProsGreat people to work with and great benefits. Some travel and you get to work with helicopters.

ConsAlmost non existent raises or bonuses. And now the company is starting to care more about hours than how well you work.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide your employees with more desire to work hard like raises.

Complete lack of mentoring for juniors and no career opportunities

Avionic Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Cascina della Costa (Italy)

I have been working at AgustaWestland full-time for more than a year

ProsSolid company, no need to worry about loosing your job
Company name is highly spendable, a plus on your CV

ConsBad work/life balance
Spent more than one year as a junior, only one useful training course
The only perk you get is free cafeteria
As a software engineer, I did not have internet access, nor I was administrator of my pc, very unefficient
Very little career chances, no job rotation
Too much bureaucracy and internal organization is very bad efficiency-wise

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you hire engineers, treat them as such. It is unbearable that a company does not trust its employees enough to give them internet: check employees performances and punish the unworthy, do not punish everybody because of some slacker! It slows down and makes life difficult for employees who want to actually do something.

Cool product for disappointing management

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Samarate (Italy)

I have been working at AgustaWestland full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAppealing product, niche market (growth and little competition), nice people, relaxed workplace.

ConsBad old-style management, no vision and strategy, no merit, no career opportunity and personal growth, too much talking and little action, politics involvement, bad processes, inner fights, lack of management competencies all over.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare a culture, get a vision, behave seriously, lead by example, manage and value people (you're not alone running the business), give feedback, rule out personal affair and politics, improve your management/financial competencies.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Certification management

Certification Manager (Former Employee)
Milano (Italy)

I worked at AgustaWestland as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsInteresting company with fantastic product line, many challenges for technical specialists and program oriented careers. One of the best places to work in Italy

Consnot enough knowledge of Italian language makes working difficult. Company claims to work according to matrix organisation but are in fact strongly hierarchically structured.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more foreigners. Move young professionals faster into managing position.

After few changes a good place

Industrial Engineer (Current Employee)
Samarate (Italy)

I have been working at AgustaWestland full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWorking in Aeronautics the best place is an Aircraft-making company.
Is an open company where it is possible to get easy access to information.
Agustawestland is a woldwide company that gives opportunities to spend a working period abroad.
Good training program and starting career opportunity.

ConsHigh complexity in managing a lot of different programs (each with its own history and rules) can lead to high stress periods.
Internal organisation, services, burocracy and infrastructure not the best in efficiency.
Unsatisfactory HR.
No job rotation.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess focus on Program Managers, Planners and similar and more focus on designers and "real working" personnel: more PM does not mean better organisation if the persons who perform the work are always the same. It is needed "best planning" instead of "more planning"!
