    I have been working at MBDA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexi-time is great and gym facilities are mediocre.

    Cons

    Old fashioned. Nobody seems to adapt to new technologies; everything has been designed 20 years ago and therefore "cannot be adapted in order to take into account newer more proficient methods of doing things". Everybody comes up with new "business processes" but fundamentally its the same spiele over and over. Average age is 45+. Which explains the reluctance to adapt. Failure to adhere to the old standards is considered to be a no-no. People who work here tend to have stayed here because they have settled down in local areas and therefore cannot afford to move. If you do not have these obligations i strongly recommend you do not join this company. Also if you do not have an active interest in aerospace, again, I strongly recommend you do not join this company. Career opportunities are limited and any attempt to change the culture is considered a preposterous manoeuvre.

    I worked at MBDA part-time

    Pros

    Very interesting projects, people are kind and help you to understand the problems related to guidance and control design for the whole missile system. It's a very stimulating place to work.

    Cons

    Career opportunities are not so satisfactory, the average age is a bit high and it's very difficult to be recruited definitely by this company if you start as an external consultant or as an unpaid internship
