Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Thales full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Interesting/sophisticated work; empowered to make important decisions; international travel (Paris); good work/life balance; market compensation; pleasant colleagues (some awesome, none awful); good immediate boss.

Cons

Currently a transitional environment because of organizational changes at Group and US HQs (impacts morale and job security); ocasional cultural gaps between French and US management (never a problem for me).

Advice to Management

Weather the economic storm and increase focus on morale; improve internal communication.

    Pros

    Great benefits, never boring, bosses let you do your job with a large degree of independence.

    Cons

    Upper management sometimes out of touch, reluctant to settle conflicts, conflicts created by conflicting goals. Examples, build something quickly, but spend no time or money on it, but get it delivered. Satisfy customers, but cut costs from current level by spending less time on customer satisfaction. Handle more business, but with fewer people.

    Advice to Management

    Tell everyone what the priority is, instead of making people wrong no matter what the result

    Great benefits. Good pay. Relaxed atmosphere with a lot of funny people (lots of ex-military).

    Cons

    Work can be slow with the decline of the airline industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
