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

    Pros

    Somewhat satisfying work when you have an AOG customer that you can help. Lots of direct customer interaction and traveling to visit customers in their locations. Lots of possibilities for travel to US locations. Secure job if you can take the red tape, some people have worked here for 30 years and longer.

    Cons

    Pay is about 10-15% below industry management level. Tied to big Airbus in France so things move VERY slow. Pay raises for merit are not commonplace. Remote work allowed when traveling, all other times you are expected in the office daily. Can be challenging to see the reasoning behind how things work. There is resistance or lack of effort to change.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to modern day work ethic and experience the difference in productivity a happy employee provides. Pay more in line with industry standards.
