    I worked at Airbus Group as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for Airbus Group include the extremely competitive pay for support personnel (I was a Project Coordinator), the employee culture allows you to get to know people from all walks of life, the company will train you on all of their toolsets and more, so you can walk in the door with little to no prior experience and leave a real Project Management professional.

    Cons

    As a contract employee, I was both easy to hire, but easy to fire. The company reorganizes often, so many people meet the unemployment line this way. I was laid off for that reason.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be more personable to employees. Some of them seem very reserved and 'off limits' to the common employee.


  2. Good people and products.

    Pros

    Interesting work with good compensation and benefits. Plenty of customer facing opportunities. Good name recognition for networking and resume building.

    Cons

    Long term vision is cloudy. Training is minimal due to workload. Departments are typically understaffed leading to resource over utilization. Limited growth potential of small isolated groups.

    Pros

    Diverse portfolio of product and services, excellent market share and rich past performance register. Opportunities to excel if business opportunities are successfully identified.

    Cons

    Matrix organizational structure looses ownership of problems, fuels overheads and antagonises price to win debates.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on central costs, central functions, look to iCompanies for models of R&D and innovation, bring in external HR experts on organisational structure optimisation.
