    I worked at Thales full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on different projects and get exposure to various parts of the business. Great location. The business is growing rapidly which means more job stability. Most people enjoy working there and are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Abysmal training/orientation. Benefits are basic and bare bones. There is a bonus structure for certain salary grades but this is kept secret. Corporate culture lacks polish. Managers do not coach or mentor employees. HR does not provide clear documentation on PTO and floating holidays.

    No team building events or exercises to build employee morale. High stress and drab environment resulted in several employees becoming seriously ill. Chronic smoking in front of the main entrance.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate! Share information with your employees so they feel a sense of awareness and empowerment. Don't be afraid to engage and support your team regardless of salary grade. The lower salary grades work very hard and need to feel included.
