Excellent
Application Engineer/Analyst (Former Employee) –  Crawley, GASeptember 14, 2017
It was always Excellent at Thales UK, the working ethics was sport-on. The distance from home was a bit of an issue as commuting was via M25, which was always problems in the mornings.

Thales Avionics is a great company
Material Handler/Distribution Center (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 15, 2017
Thales is a great company to work for. they have amazing 401k and benefits.
i find with working in the delivery center there are not opportunities to grow. even when you take initiative and learn every aspect of the warehouse you are still not going to be promoted or given a raise anywhere in the near future. i think you work harder than you are compensated. its a great learning experience and great tools to keep with you when looking for your next job opportunity.
Pros
401k, benefits, pto
Cons
no room for growth

Line Maintenance Technician On-Board Services (Former Employee) –  Des Plaines, ILAugust 14, 2017
Management is not encouraging.

extremely counter productive processes
Director of Infrastructure & Network Operations (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJuly 18, 2017
This business lines suffers from an identity crisis. Leadership wants to compete a commercial organization. However, processes are geared to government contractor business practices. On average it take between 24-36 months to get anything done.

Not USA Based
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  RemoteJune 12, 2017
French based. We are lowly colony. Focus on qtr-qtr, neglect future; they purchase the tech that they need/ no R&D; They are the BORG.
They are huge outside of USA; here in USA they have the stigma of vastly foreign supplier.
Pros
Above average salary, sometimes
Cons
Management disconnected to future/ Merely watch Qtr-Qtr profit

Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAJune 6, 2017
The company was going through a lot of changes and implementation of new tools and processes. Had to quickly learn the new tools. This would sometimes mean late nights to make sure reports and other regular processes get done appropriately and on time.

MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAMay 15, 2017
Very nice people to work with. Enjoyable atmosphere.
People are not really held accountable. Management is not particularly trustworthy. HR used to be very good when they only had a few people. Now they have dozens and are really bad.
Pros
Nice people

Great job if managed better
Lead Repair Technician (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 11, 2017
Developing a team and seeing them work through hardships was easily the best part of the job. The techs were great in that they helped each other often to get the job done. Working on the equipment has its own rewards. It would be the perfect job if the management knew how to respond and help their people. Instead, they look for any excuse to call their people failures. They're very difficult to work with because they are not open to ideas. It is very hard to develop and grow because of it. Their demeanor destroys creativity, initiative, and the will to go above and beyond.
Pros
Working with techs and engineers.
Cons
The management
