    Pros

    Very patient people who are more than happy to help you out when you are new. Great place to increase your experience and skill levels.

    Cons

    Very busy. New hires are coming every week thus things get out of hands from time to time. Need to have a buddy to get everything settled in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to know where I can find documents for new recruits. It is frustrating to figure out where everything is during the first few weeks with little guidance.

    I have been working at Thales Aerospace

    Pros

    Most people are friendly,hard working and are happy to share information. The level of experience is growing.

    Cons

    Middle and lower management lack experience. Upper management seems to be continuously chasing the next 'big' thing. The next generation of product, etc, without having finished the current generation. Always seem to underestimate the size of the task and provide short schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more realistic planning and scheduling from marketing and sales.

    I have been working at Thales Aerospace

    Pros

    Creative thinkers challenge one another to strive for not "good enough" solutions for client, but rather a real range of options. High level of caring between employees. Word hard/play hard. Always striving to improve service. High focus on career success.

    Cons

    Sometimes struggles to hire enough people with the right skills, so people are often overloaded. That is ok for the short-term but not great in the long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the people working there seem to thrive on this overload, but not everyone. workload needs to be balanced
