    Looking Bleak

    Accountant (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsWork life balance, Flexi-time, Friendly colleagues

    ConsSlow 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Key Account Manager KAM (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsBig company benefits. Interesting projects. Some good people.

    ConsVery 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 ManagementUrgently need new blood in the management team. Review of the way sales are incentivised.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Thales - UK

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat engineering company. Long term career prospects good.

    ConsMiddle 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 ManagementUnless the internal focus is corrected and a new breed of sales people are not brought into the company - there will be tough time ahead.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
