    I worked at Sagem Avionics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working for Sagem had the best vacation time off and sick time policy that made it very easy to have personal time off after working very hard and dedicated to the company. Training and keeping us well informed in the aviation community also was a plus.

    Cons

    Promotions and migrating to another department is more difficult due to company staffing and specialization. Once a certain skilled level is achieved the company prefers to keep you in that department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should help the technicians by giving them the opportunity to apply for that position.

    Pros

    Great products, good customer relations, many good people within the organization devoted to company and quality products. Good benefits and employee bonus structure. The French have a good sense of people and personal life (better than some USA companies).

    Cons

    Top management (local) too dependant on single individual opinion for general company operations. Not enough local autonomy. Dictates made from parent company limit local company inovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO think for yourself, not direction of old VP mindset. (Appreciate the CEOs desire to uplift and promote employee goodwill through many social activities.)

    Pros

    Pros – Vacation and Healthcare are exceptional. Salary lower than one might expect. They have domestic partner benefits for the GL community. Long hours expected from executives that often arrive late, and most executives go home first out the door.

    Cons

    Cons – no possibility to move forward at corporate for the French, no quality training, management exemplifies partiality to those that speak French. They constantly make obvious errors, and blame non French speakers. Often do not return phone calls, do not return emails to team members, or others, and do not share important information to staff members. They often document all mistakes to the wrong person, and credit themselves for the hard work of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Executive Management – Consider paying for quality training, NOT in-house Safran University courses, and accept blame for your own errors in both judgement and experience. This is mainly due to lack of knowledge on business practices. Oh, and treat everyone with respect.

    Pros

    Overall positive enviroment, research and development all encompassing and the leadership had outward projections of common, mutual respect for wholesome promotion through challenges.

    Cons

    High expections and performance requirments were not fostered through proper channels which exsisted, yet the same channels from management carried retrobutions not warranted for hard work ethic and attitudes towards corrective actions regarding mistakes and non-compliant or lack of support issues at operations level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encompass inner work group and whole section input and offer conflict resolution as a nuetral ground rather a firing squad as it was during my intense and most enjoyable time there as one emplyee of three in logistics doing six jobs at any given time, with expediency and efficiently.
