    I worked at Thales

    Pros

    - large organization, enough technical expertise in house
    - good communication and support between project teams across different geographies
    - potential to transfer internationally within same job function and expertise

    Cons

    - clear difference in compensation package (vacation days, total package) between french staff and local staff
    - limited chance for career advancement if senior management cannot bring in projects, dependent on economy and development condition of the markets that you branch office cover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Chart better career path picture for engineering or project management staff
    - Consolidate the many business units of Thales in Asia and spend some branding money. Everyone knows Siemens, GE but hardly anyone know Thales outside of Europe
