I have been working at Thales full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Work life balance, Flexi-time, Friendly colleagues
Cons – Slow to market, cuts being made due to state of the defence market has affected morale and put pressure on managers, low salary with freezes for years, Poorly run graduate programme, for an international firm there doesn't seem to be too much movement of people

I worked at Thales full-time for less than a year
Pros – Big company benefits. Interesting projects. Some good people.
Cons – Very inflexible. Senior management completely incompetent. Very process oriented. Promotion or career advancement minimal if you not French. Salaries for sales not market related. Very political.
Advice to Senior Management – Urgently need new blood in the management team. Review of the way sales are incentivised.

I have been working at Thales full-time for less than a year
Pros – Great engineering company. Long term career prospects good.
Cons – Middle management totally incompetent. Company very slow in responding to changes in market. Very much internally focused. Not commercially savvy. Cannot manage sales intuitively - everything has a process associated with it. Very cumbersome.
Advice to Senior Management – Unless the internal focus is corrected and a new breed of sales people are not brought into the company - there will be tough time ahead.
