I worked at Thales

Pros

- large organization, enough technical expertise in house
- good communication and support between project teams across different geographies
- potential to transfer internationally within same job function and expertise

Cons

- clear difference in compensation package (vacation days, total package) between french staff and local staff
- limited chance for career advancement if senior management cannot bring in projects, dependent on economy and development condition of the markets that you branch office cover

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Chart better career path picture for engineering or project management staff
- Consolidate the many business units of Thales in Asia and spend some branding money. Everyone knows Siemens, GE but hardly anyone know Thales outside of Europe

    It would be nice if there was a greater investment made in the sale team. Areas for investment include better customer support, better lead generation and more sales tools.
