I have been working at Thales UK full-time (more than an year)

Pros

aggressive growth and development plans, lots of opportunities if you are proactive, lots of development opportunity.

Cons

remuneration isn't always market leading but it is becoming more attractive, IT is always an issue but there are plans to change this (it does affect work at present though)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep open to new ideas and keep pushing the change programme ahead

    Pros

    I cannot think of a pro. The benefits are reasonable - car, pension.

    Cons

    Constant structural changes. Line management incompetent. Not a outwardly focused sales company. Lots of internal procedure. Company does not reward new thinking and very set in a military mindset. Renumeration not on par with industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the company focus from internal to external customers. Slim down internal procedure. Reward sales resources appropriately. Review line management capability to change from a defence focused company to a commercial enterprise.

    Pros

    Assigned a mentor on your first day
    Senior technical people are inspiring

    Cons

    A lot of training is irrelevant to day job and a waste of time.

     In many years they've increased the starting salary for new graduates meaning they start on the same pay as current graduates who have been with the company for 1-2 years which is a joke. To me this is a reflection on the lack of respect/value corporate have for graduates. Pay reviews aren't great, they are supposed to be performance based but never are. A lot of mixed messages from HR in various departments mean that the rules on pay rises and promotions are inconsistent so many graduates feel they have been treated unfairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less emphasis on CEng, look towards other more relevant certifications. Show that you value your graduates!
