    Pros

    You get to solve real world problems effecting our daily lives. There is a decent work-life balance.

    Take a closer look at employees daily activities and make them accountable.

    Pros

    Cool products. Salaries and benefits are ok. Coworkers try to support each other because the corporate office doesn't really care about the global sites.

    Cons

    French owned company. Very very French. Promotions are limited if your not French. US companies are neglected and not important to the corporate office. Most corporate communications are sent in French with no translation.

    Advice to Management

    Treat US companies better, part of the corporation. The Safran USA president has no leadership experience.
