    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Airbus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - decent pay - good work-life balance - not too much stress - public servant kind of job - you wont be fired if you don't perform

    Cons

    - you climb the latter, if you don't screw up (succeeding is not important), which means that you shouldn't fail, which leads to: no risk taking and no decision making - no strategy in place or totally disconnected from people working - no entrepreneurial culture: "we only build something new, when the customers fully pays us" - constant re-organisation (at least every 2 years)

    "Great working environment but too much politics"

    • Senior Management
    Current Contractor - Project Performance Manager in Filton, England
    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Airbus for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can have great work-life balance, flexible working hours, flexible working location and the new aerospace park buildings are an excellent environment to work in. There are a lot of smart and interesting people that you may work with and many interesting projects. For internal employees there are a lot of training opportunities and a lot of perks.

    Cons

    Politics,politics,politics.Most middle and senior managers are so involved into politics that it feels like the company is paralysed by it. There is big disconnection between the central team in France and the UK and it feels like a parent-kid relationship. There is a lot of dead weight and there are people sitting there doing nothing for weeks or even months. Due to the nature of the business there is a lot red-tape and the bureaucracy can be burdensome at times. There is no much opportunity for career progression in the area of project management, especially if you are a contractor. In some cases contractors are being treated as b-class citizens in comparison to internal employees and there is a high-turnover.
