Intern - Quality (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – December 27, 2018
I worked for the Mobile, AL site of Airbus.
I used a lot of Tableau and Excel, I worked as an intern, balancing about 25 hours of work while taking 19 hours of Engineering classes. I drove an average of 10 hours a week to get back and forth, because I live out of state.
My managers were consistently impressed with my work, and knew that my contract was running out soon.
Somehow, they figured out that there wasn't enough work to make me full time between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
They wanted to keep me as an intern, making $16.50 an hour.
There was no time to look for anything else within the company, and I was told about the apprenticeship program, as I was making my way out the door.
It would have been nice to continue, if they could've been industry competitive, I would have stayed.
The best part of the job is the fact that they let me work in my cubicle without making me socialize.
The worst part of the job was they complained about the fact that I don't socialize to everyone but me.
The workplace culture was pretty relaxed, if you don't count the fact that they threw a party with Prosecco and cake on Sept 11, to 'celebrate the advances of the aviation industry'.
In some ways, I'm sad to leave, in some ways, I can't wait to get away.
Their IT team was excellent. They showed me different things about the system, and let me work with them on a large project in my last week. i got to put some of that work on my resume, and they sent me out the door with a lot of experience and notes on what places I should go next.

Vice President of Business Development (Current Employee) – San Ramon, CA – August 6, 2018
Tough working with the French, as the cultural differences were much worse than I thought. This is even though I speak fluent French and understand the culture to some degree. If you're not French or German, you're not advancing in this company.
Manufacturing (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – August 3, 2018
This was truly a great place to work. Numerous retirements in the senior management team and really poor hires from the outside have destroyed the culture and led to regular reductions in the workforce.
Corporate Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – March 27, 2018
I never been to a company where management hates coming into work everyday. People can be rude and easily frustrated. No sense of corporate culture. Ever since BDO took over the accounting its been a mess to say the least. BDO is not doing their job! no accountability for the department.
Independent Contractor (Former Employee) – Temecula, CA – December 10, 2017
You get the opportunity to work with some truly exceptional software engineers here. The management is generally supportive and communicates expectations very well.
The only real downside to the culture here is that teams in different physical locations are often politically at odds. Within a single team the experience is great but if you try to get anything done across teams that are in different offices it is extremely difficult.
Accounting (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – November 22, 2017
Airbus as a whole is a great place to work. I loved working at Airbus but I didn't so much love working for my manager. My manager was a complete jerk that doesn't know anything about his department. He tortures his employees. Work would be alot better if he wasn't there.

System Installer (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – June 6, 2017
Don't ever use their speak up culture they say they want badly. They use it to remove those workers from the company. I know several people who used it and the are all gone except a few. And all those people have been written up and in the process of begin let go. On the other hand they hire a lot of ex military personal ( I am one of them). This is part of their problem. It has the military culture and you all know you cant speak your mind. Its truly a enigma.
steady work, clean enviorment, nice cafateria, hire ex military, plenty of training.
To advance you must step on your mothers neck most of the time, Its difintly not what yhou know its who youy can throw under the bus
