      Really looks after their people

      Pros

      Flexible working was great! Ability to take additional days off and Christmas shutdown was great. Extremely risk averse but with good reason. Airbus to me really cares for their people and will do the right thing by them so long as it is in their gift. Extremely compliant organisation.

      Cons

      Everything is so slow!!! Takes forever to get things done. Extremely bureaucratic although you may not think so. So many layers of management to get through before a decision is made. Everything is led by France and they will impose things on the UK that does not suit it but you have to make it work based on the ordained parameters. I do not believe that you have much chance to grow and develop outside the realms of the role you were employed to do. If you do get the opportunity it’s more about who you know. Extremely complex matrix organisation that just made the role more difficult as you are trying to navigate how the business works as well as doing your job. Benefits are crap considering the size of the business and it’s reputation. Really basic apart from the flexible working. Flexible working is 5 star.
