    I have been working at Safran

    Pros

    1. Engineering team 2. Awesome technology (biometrics) That's about it.

    Cons

    1. Middle level management are selfish, & bias. They only care about their bonuses. 2. Shamelessly expect you to slog for long hours, come on weekends, etc., without even comp days off (and forget about extra pay) 3. No career growth whatsoever, unless you are buddies with the managers, and play golf with them. 4. Employees are not valued in this company. 5. On the flip side, some became managers with just 2 years' career experience and with absolutely no talent. 6. And now after Safran acquired, nothing changed locally (in concord), but layoffs began. Do not join this company, it is a sinking ship. One by one, people are leaving. 7. Too many politics.

    Advice to Management

    To the top level management: This division has awesome team, the management at concord don't know how to use them, nor do they know how to treat their employees. And hey became managers only from the back doors. SACK THEM. Especially the Indian folks, get rid of them if you have any plans to keep the company alive. Brilliant engineers are leaving because of their politics.
