    A frustrating time due to a company fixation with irrelevant metrics whilst important issues areignored.

    Pros

    A relatively stable work environment whcih appears to have escaped the brunt of the economic slump. Recognised training schemes to enable Engineering staff to attain chartered status.

    Cons

    Speaking as an Engineer, Selex Galileo has adopted an approach which means that the solution to all problems is to use a technique of micro-management. Rather than reporting to single individuals you find yourself being asked the same questions by two or three different individuals throughout the day. When in reality the answer is from an engineering perspective we are simply under resourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine the current structure of the organisation and ask the question "are all these management layers required?"
    Quality products will bring customers back. Selling prototype, underdeveloped equipment under the guise of "production equipment" will do exactly the opposite. Implementation of poorly thought out processes will not improve the quality of products.
