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

    Pros

    Personal Development, Aeroplanes are inspirational, 35 hour week, short day on a Friday, flexible working - start /finish /work from home. Annual Bonus and pay rise, can buy an extra weeks holiday. Buildings are good and car parking

    Cons

    The structure can still be very hierarchical and some managers on the dictatorial side. It's a large company and it having to work to create a one team feel and attitude. The finance arrangements or assigning budgets and running projects is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the Empowerment philosophy. Set budgets early let work commence on the 2nd of January!
