    I have been working at Selex Galileo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good facilities, smart buildings and flexi time
    a good focus on Training and development (you need to drive this but that's how it should be!)
    Generally a people focused organisation

    Cons

    The company strategy for the next 2-5 years is not clear.
    The high level (exec) management are not engaged. In the current climate (and probably well before now) direction needed to be set and hard decisions made to guarantee the future. Enthusiasm, engagement and commitment seem to be lacking at the highest levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the execs, stop the chatting, make some decisions and drive them through TO COMPLETION.

    I have been working at Selex Galileo

    Pros

    A very friendly place to work, with most people being very willing to help you out.
    So long as you get the job done properly, you shouldn't have your boss breathing down your neck.
    Good opportunities for training.

    Cons

    Far too many levels of management.
    A strange disparity in procedures for courses - some require jumping through hoops to get on, some to get off!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the unnecessary levels of middle management and stop wasting money on large-scale training courses that are widely unpopular, then talk about wanting to cut costs.
