    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at SAFT as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Good hours. Laid-back work pace(at least for me). People were polite and courteous.

    Cons

    Most of the employees were working through Remedy Staffing so it was a temporary job with a possibility for permanence. It would not have been a con if I had been hired directly though.

    Advice to Management

    Get those contracts with your clients because I would really like to work there again.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at SAFT full-time

    Pros

    Excellent communications up and down and very good aviation products. International company located in South Georgia with manufacturing in-house.

    Cons

    Sometimes, communications with the parent company in France can be difficult, but this is not uncommon in international companies with operations spread around the world.

    Advice to Management

    It would be somewhat presumptuous to offer advice from my level to upper management. It's always easy to criticize from the outside without having the responsibility of being on the inside.

    Pros

    Very focused on core technology
    Not too political
    Benefits on par with other global companies
    Family events are fun
    Company seems committed to long term success

    Cons

    Quality of workspace inconsistent from location to location
    Central (corporate) support functions are not very helpful - they seem to be understaffed
    Sometimes there are unproductive disagreements between locations

    Advice to Management

    Invest in corporate resources to really share best practices from location to location
    Be sure sites are properly staffed with the right level of resources to insure work-life balance for everyone not just some

    Pros

    Un comité d'entreprise très important permettant aux employées d'avoir des accès à des vacances a très bons prix ainsi qu'à beaucoup d'autres avantages.

    Cons

    Le cabinet syndical est bien trop puissant, il y a donc beaucoup de grèves. Les différents employés ne se mélange pas lors des repas au réfectoire et chacun reste dans sa section.
