    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Airbus Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leave at noon on Fridays, downtown location (but that is changing soon),

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to other aircraft companies in the area, they tend to promote people that are in their "circle" rather than the best people for the job. Minorities seem to be missing from leadership positions, even when better qualified. Wichita location seems to be winding down. not sure about longevity with company.

    Advice to Management

    Change management up a bit. There are several under-qualified individuals in leadership positions. Watch the treatment of minorities and women...the engineers (again in management roles) need to move on into the 21st century in regard to minorities in the workplace (a lot of racist remarks were overheard while I was there). A hostile work environment if you are minority. Needs a house cleaning at upper levels and training!!

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Airbus Group full-time

    Pros

    Checks were on time...and that's about it!!!!

    Cons

    No structure, no leadership, the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. HR is so screwed up that it's ridiculous!!!! Who is running the show?!?!?!?! Pay for blue collar workers is below industry standard and they expect people to choke it down with a smile on their face!!!! We need a union to protect us but Airbus FAL is trying to convince us that we don't need one. They are more worried about their bonuses than fair pay for the people who actually produce the airplanes!

    Advice to Management

    Clean out your corporate HR department, get some real leadership in place and pay fair wages. P.S...the union is coming!!!!!

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

    Pros

    No pressure. Decent pay. Job security.Plus you can build a collection of desk models of helicopters and airplanes.

    Cons

    When I worked there, there was no commitment, and hence no support, for building the U.S. business outside of commercial airliners. All lip service. I hear from my former colleagues that the change in CEO didn't change things.

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether you are serious about pursuing sales in the U.S. defense market. If so, make real investments. Otherwise, stop pretending that it is something the firm wants to do.

    Pros

    Great work / life balance. Coffee breaks galore. The end product is very interesting and they do a good job a promoting what is being made internally. Communication is pretty good as well.

    Cons

    You feel like a number there. This company will hire 10 people to do one job. Overall, to get a raise (non-standard) or a promotion, someone has to leave. Working above and beyond does not get you very far.


  11. Ok place to start your career but not a long term company.

    Pros

    Room to make mistakes at first so long one shows initiative, confidence and growth.

    Cons

    Pay can be much better. Its just enough to be somewhat competitive. Room to grow can be limiting.

    Advice to Management

    Pay and hours need to improve. Opportunities and room for growth is lacking.
