Pros

Good benefits, 4 weeks vacation, 401k. If you like travel, Thales gives you many opportunities to do so and it is great to take advantage of that.

Cons

Difficult to accomplish anything. Lots of travel in my position as program manager which i don't like. Thales is political and run by the french.

Advice to Management

Need to consider the employees more and find ways to retain them. Employees will start leaving when they reach the breaking point.

    Pros

    Great benefits. The 4 weeks of vacation actually include sick days. The benefits are good. Met and worked with many wonderful people. Product is good.

    Cons

    People are worked to death. Management does not know how to structure itself and work towards a better environment. Finger pointing. Departments do not speak to each other. Management infighting. To be promoted you had better be in the same cultural vertical.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership at Thales would not take any comments into consideration. The atmosphere is very high school 'mentality' oriented. Management needs to place more respect on the efforts of all employees and not the few. The company is not progressing from efforts of management, but from efforts and hard work of the employees.
