    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Thales Avionics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on different projects and get exposure to various parts of the business. Great location. The business is growing rapidly which means more job stability. Most people enjoy working there and are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Abysmal training/orientation. Benefits are basic and bare bones. There is a bonus structure for certain salary grades but this is kept secret. Corporate culture lacks polish. Managers do not coach or mentor employees. HR does not provide clear documentation on PTO and floating holidays. No team building events or exercises to build employee morale. High stress and drab environment resulted in several employees becoming seriously ill. Chronic smoking in front of the main entrance.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate! Share information with your employees so they feel a sense of awareness and empowerment. Don't be afraid to engage and support your team regardless of salary grade. The lower salary grades work very hard and need to feel included.


  2. Too much political distraction

    Pros

    Good benefit package with generous vacation time (4 weeks - inherited the French). Good bonus amount in place of lower than average salary. There're some real talented people working here.

    Cons

    Lots of politcal games. Despite being in the business for a long time, their software department was never matured nor organized. They focus a lot of on empty processes. Directors were being rotated constantly. The current one is really bad and caused a lot of people leaving. Abusive management never got let go. There's also a constant struggle between local software group and the counterpart from parent company in France.

    Advice to Management

    It's still an engineering company after all. So hire more engineers instead of managers. Everyone is some sort of manager here, so who's left to do the real work? Clean up the corrupted management structure so that engineers can do their job.
