    Big company benefits

    ProsThere are great benefits working at the Airbus group, opportunities are available to move within the company and gain experience in different roles/jobs.

    All you need to brings value to the business (i.e. Airbus, Cassidian, Astrium, Eurocopter)

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsLots of opportunities are provided to research engineers and corporate roles such as governance and management, process methods and tools development.
    Resources are available to explore lots of different technologies.
    You can work and collaborate more easily with all EADS business units and beyond corporate boundaries.

    ConsDon't forget to get back to business units once being in corporate projects.
    Restructuring of business units affects the projects of corporate, but this is normal for any organization!

    Advice to Senior ManagementExcellent environment to learn political aspects of inter-corporate affairs

    Great Products despite management behaviours

    Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsLarge Aircraft design & build opportunities. Good career progress for self driven individuals. Airbus in the UK employs world class engineers (evident when dealing with subcontract houses & Teir 1 suppliers). Generally good work life balance, i.e. little pressure on when holidays should be taken.

    Conslack or "care" for employees, massive differences in treatment of employees between sites, some of these are perceived, some are real (i.e french contract employees don't take xmas holidays out of allowance). Slightly less self driven or pushy individuals can be "forgotten" doing a good & steady job.. you have to push for opportunities. Government politics play too much of a role in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of government driven workshare agreements and place work where it protects skills, sites, knowledge & efficiency. investigate why CEO level initiative never hit bottom rung (middle management empire building)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
