    I have been working at Airbus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work culture is excellent. They care about the welfare of their employees including their personal development. The work load is measured properly and they make sure all employees have a fair share of work without overburden. Management listens and takes corrective action wherever possible. Salary is moderate with some benefits but according to aerospace standard in India. Ample of opportunities to switch between teams and they encourage collaboration among teams within department at least. Weightage given to additional activities that adds value to business or generation of more budget in the department.

    Cons

    Lacks a bit on basic infrastructure like laptops and other enabling devices, however they are gradually working on it. The image one has in mind about working in Airbus might not be met until one gets to work in their Europe locations since that’s where the major things happen and where one gets to see the true output of the work that he/she does from India with all the test rigs, assembly lines and other RnD centres being out there.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Airbus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Exposure and visibility across functions. If your manager is good, you can get a lot of good work done.

    Cons

    Major politics. Some of the group managers are the worst. They harass people and even on complaining, no major steps are taken against the perpetrators. There has been no hike since last 2 years and they make you sign a bond for 3 years for 5 lakh rupees. Company is not at all employee or woman friendly. It is not a next gen company at all. Anyone looking for major growth should not come here. Leadership is extremely biased and protects the harassers.

    I worked at Airbus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Frequent visit to Europe (Mainly Toulouse or Hamburg) - Now it is not that frequent and depends on project to project 2. Benefits are decent - Like subsidized breakfast and not so subsidized lunch, travel allowance 1200/- INR (not included in CTC), Sodexo of 1500/- (not included in CTC) 3. Medical insurance (That covers parents) is very very good. It also provides OPD. 4. Salary is above average compare to any other service-based company or foreign banks but low compare to big software product based companies 5. Very meticulously follows agile methodology 6. Quality/Challenges of work is decent - Not so high not low also. 7. Currently started working in new technologies but legacy technologies are really old 8. European counterparts are good and helpful

    Cons

    1. No WFH policy for India office (Although European office has 1 day WFH policy) 2. No laptop - They have VDIs only 3. Engineering team (Like Aerospace Engineer) and Software engineer treated little differently 4. The software division in Airbus in India has a top-down culture and many times the manager does micromanagement which is similar to a service-based company. 5. Although Airbus says they are like product based companies but Bangalore is more like a service-based work culture for the software division 6. Not many opportunities to learn new tech or some other technology that your team is not working on. The manager won't approve of that. 7. Training is not good and as normal as like service-based companies
