    I worked at Airbus Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Managers seemed interested in teaching and supporting interns.
    Canteen offered many healthy choices.
    Interns were treated as part of the team and were able to sit in/participate on meetings with high-level managers

    Cons

    Complexity of the organisational structure reduces the turnaround time for efficiency when just starting the job.

    I worked at Airbus Group full-time for 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

    The people and benefits are the best reasons to work for the company.

    Cons

    The merging of EADS NA and Airbus Americas is not starting off well. They will most likely take away the days EADS NA already have and follow Airbus Americas. The new CEO is not personable and has an air about him. I believe he is set in the ways of Airbus Americas and not looking at what will benefit overall. The woke is not challenging and there is very little room for advancement. The number of temps continues to increase and it doesn't appear they are hiring anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly care and offer promotions

    Pros

    You don't have to worry about losing your job as a contractor, as long as you perform,

    Cons

    The US engineering office is in Wichita, KS, of all places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the company end up like some of the Wichita aircraft companies.

    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.

    I have been working at Airbus Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great energy, drive, and core people. Strongly committed to the industry, to customers and to idea of public safety. A company on the rebound that has shown a willingness lately to listen to employee ideas. The intro of new CEO in last few years has really helped. Solid products that work. Lots of big ideas and creativity currently running through the company's veins.

    Cons

    With exception of CEO and one or two others the company has a very weak executive management team. New blood needed to take company to next level. Software development and product management are abysmal -- continually late in delivering products and late to the market in general with no apparent accountability or end in sight. Struggle to make decisions. Struggle with change necessary to grow business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold software developers accountable.
