    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Safran full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Caring about people and mentoring of fresh graduates. Big focus on quality over time. Very wide array of projects, entities and geographies.

    Cons

    Very disparate culture, performance and leadership styles depending on "Legacy entity" : former Snecma group vs former Sagem group. Not international enough in terms of recruitment, management practices and senior leadership development track; Too much inertia and too vertical in terms of organisation and leadership: bottom-up feedback is virtually non-existant. If not french, top graduate schools are a bit underrated/undervalued: only l'X, Sup'Aero, Centrale Paris and HEC will be a serious advantage

    Advice to Management

    Safran is only a "group" for the top 100 executives, the "culture" really stops at the senior manager level. There's a need for stronger emphasis on performance: there's no real incentive to exceed expectations, as promotion, development and pay do not seem to be correlated to performance and tangible achievements.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Safran full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Leading edge technologies - Multidisciplinary projects - Lots of career opportunities

    Cons

    Sometimes, I had to produce a lot of documentations for a very fast-paced project or mission. This is part of working for a big company.
