Pros

Good atmosphere and generally well treated by the company.
Lots of opportunities for development for young people to develop within the company and opportunities to work at other locations are available.

Cons

Sometimes the work can lack motivational opportunities due to the long product lifecycles. Lessons do not always seem to be learned as they do at other companies and the more senior management within the programmes seem to lack some wider experience beyond MBDA which can be frustrating to those who have worked outside.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Carry on listening to the Opinion surveys, the employees do value the opportunity to let the Senior Management know what they are feeling.

    Pros

    Flexi time, can get up to extra 2 days off a month, Great Gym, facilties and social life

    Cons

    No sharing of information between disciplines and "us and them" attitude most of the time is spent figuring out ways to dump work onto and stiutch up other departments. Only those who "talk a good curry" while spending hours in the pub while somebody else takes the blame for thier screw upsd gets promoted. Institutional apathy, everybody wants to snipe at other departments but nobody wants to actually do anything, Lightweight departments like HR and finance run everything and do nothing. When you say something to try and sort out the mess your are lablled a nut job that needs proffesional help, not attempt at performanace management just sink that knife into the chest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign so that the company might get somebody in that knows what they are about

    Pros

    Good atmosphere amongst the young people on site - really social group. The flexitime arrangement is a real plus too - getting to go home at lunchtime on a Friday certainly frees up your weekend.

    Otherwise, if you're lucky, there are some opportunities to travel, including to the continent (office in Paris and various locations in Italy). Failing that, you should at least get the chance to visit the sites in Bolton or Bristol.

    Cons

    The work can be quite tedious, probably a reflection of the fact that in this industry you are working to very long (sometimes up to 20 years!) timescales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people are recruited as high-flyers, they should be stimulated as such
