Former Employee - Software Engineer
Former Employee - Software Engineer
No opinion of CEO

Pros

- large organization, enough technical expertise in house
- good communication and support between project teams across different geographies
- potential to transfer internationally within same job function and expertise

Cons

- clear difference in compensation package (vacation days, total package) between french staff and local staff
- limited chance for career advancement if senior management cannot bring in projects, dependent on economy and development condition of the markets that you branch office cover

Advice to Management

- Chart better career path picture for engineering or project management staff
- Consolidate the many business units of Thales in Asia and spend some branding money. Everyone knows Siemens, GE but hardly anyone know Thales outside of Europe
