    I have been working at Thales full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, educational opportunities, challenging work assignments and recognition for success. Fellow employees are dedicated to the work and have a strong understanding of how their jobs contribute to the success of the business. Bonuses are paid out to all employees quarterly when performance thresholds are achieved.

    Cons

    Too many levels of management at the group and corporate levels, other than that this is a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but reduce some of the redundant management structure at the group level and above.

    Recent management changes have made a huge differences, a good spirit, good people

    I can't really think of anything negative. There used to be poor performers around but the company has dealt with those people recently.

    Pros

    Very dynamic engineering, with emphasis on innovation and systemic project management.

    Not much on these, maybe the same dynamic aspect can drive sometime to un-managed change.

    I have been working at Thales full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big company, with worldwide presence and management who thinks on the employee as a person, not only as a number. Opportunity to grown and move inside the company all around the world.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but it is starting the operations in South America, so a lot of work to be done to reach the excellence level of the others countries where Thales is present.

    I worked at Thales (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I found Thales a great company to work - I worked there a total of 8 years in 2 countries and on 5 sites. If you grab opportunities it is a great place to develop your career.

    Cons

    Perhaps I'm thinking back with rose tinted glasses. In the end I left to increase my salary, but I did not find that a negative - i had been able to develop my career in my time there.

    Advice to Management

    It was a long time ago I worked at Thales - so my advice would not be relevant anymore.
