    I have been working at Airbus full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very little management over site when it comes to even the most complicated tasks. All employees are welcome to do things how they see fit.

    Cons

    No training, no career progression, no real performance reviews, everything is just a block to be checked because HR says we have too. Could be great with more innovative mangers and some sort of direction.

    I have been working at Airbus

    Pros

    Good pay. Products are well designed and robust for the most part. Fast expense reimbursement. Job looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment. Constant changes to internal processes ensures the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Insufficient (non-existent) training for new employees - hit the ground running and learn on the job as best you can. Crucial executives are not fit for their jobs making underlings lives miserable. This job will beat you down and make you question your abilities

    I worked at Airbus

    Pros

    Small team in the U.S. and Canada- opportunity for major contributions and to make change.

    Cons

    Facing giants (incumbent competitors) in the U.S.- extremely tough competition. Corporate decision to divest (sell) this business unit. Extremely broad and stringent non-compete agreements for all employees- can severely hamper anyone's career upon leaving.

    Manager in Grand Prairie, TX
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Airbus

    Pros

    Building helicopters is an interesting industry. The company is small enough to allow access to all parts of the operation for those who are interested.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the French management and their caste system mentality. If you are not a French ex pat, you can forget a senior level career with this company. Pay and benefits for equivalent title and responsibility jobs are dramatically greater for French employees than for American employees. An inordinate amount of time is spent in meetings; in 25+ years in corporate America, I have never seen so much time wasted in meetings that accomplish nothing. I also experienced more arrogance from senior management and French ex pats than I have ever encountered. The rules simply did not apply to them. Information and knowledge are not shared.
