    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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