    I worked at MBDA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good support networks and developmental opportunities with good benefits package. Flexi time scheme gives more work life freedom.

    Rigid Processes and organisation structure can be stifling.

    I have been working at MBDA full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexi time and location. Also the workforce is probably a bit younger and more diverse than most engineering companies

    Cons

    Pay progression is very stop-start, but it does come eventually. Review and promotion process can seem very opaque (although not necessarily worse than other companies)

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Hours/Flexi time, if you can find a nice niche you can rake in a load of taxpayers' money for no discernible work/output.

    Cons

    No engineering, management uninterested, contractors employed for 10+ years, permanent staff lasting 4, outdated work ethic at all levels, regularly get to use my postgraduate engineering skills fixing a Word formatting issue.
