Pros

1) Salary is good relative to other technology companies in the Toronto area.
2) The work is interesting if you like trains.
3) Some very good middle managers.

Cons

1) The senior management is completely incompetent. Thales has probably the best communications based train control system in the world and could be the dominant company in the field however the senior management have failed to exploit the opportunity.
2) Current office location at 401 and Don Valley makes for a nightmare commute.
3) Senior management enjoy looking for a scapegoat amongst the employees to blame for the companies ills.
4) Company claims that in Thales "people are first", this is a lie.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are a thousand good employees in the building. Stop treating them like naughty children and start using them to build a world class company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack in management within the teams can be improved by giving everyone an opportunity to speak. Too long processes to get an approval for a specific task. more resources to share knowledge
