    I have been working at Thales full-time

    Pros

    Interesting job for a scientist with real data and self funded research topics. A lot of social perks: vacation, holidays funding...

    Cons

    Big corporation so the decision process is quite slow. Collaboration between Thales subsidiaries is far from being optimal. Mobility between subsidiaries is also difficult to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risk in the innovation process. Do not be afraid to fail. Speed up the decision process by reducing the number of managers.

    Pros

    Il y a beaucoup d'avantages à travailler pour une entreprise telle que celle ci dont : Le CE, l'équilibre vie privée/pro et le prestige

    Cons

    Cependant, et malgré ces avantages, la mentalité "fonctionnaire" due à l'historique de l'entreprise ne permet pas l'épanouissement professionnel. De plus, les apprentis sont assimilés à des stagiaires

    Advice to Management

    Il faudrait mieux intégrer les apprentis fonction support. En fin de cursus académique, faire un apprentissage est un choix déterminant pour le début de carrière
