I have been working at Thales full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good opportunities to move around, reasonable conditions and facilities. Quite an informal atmosphere. Fairly competitive pay and perks. Friendly colleagues.

Cons

Inconsistant - some parts of the company still have poor management. Very difficult to get the company to spend money on training. Poor internal communication: there is a lot of it but it is not all effective. Almost impossible to get any significant pay increases without moving jobs.

    I worked at Thales full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting/sophisticated work; empowered to make important decisions; international travel (Paris); good work/life balance; market compensation; pleasant colleagues (some awesome, none awful); good immediate boss.

    Cons

    Currently a transitional environment because of organizational changes at Group and US HQs (impacts morale and job security); ocasional cultural gaps between French and US management (never a problem for me).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weather the economic storm and increase focus on morale; improve internal communication.
