Le monde de l'aérospatiale est un monde fascinant et rempli de défi passionnant. Le type de produit et de système développé chez Thales sont critique pour les avions.Thales est une multinationale française et un des leader mondial de l'aérospatiale, de la défense et des technologies de l'information. Les produits développé par Thales et les projets en cours sont très impressionnant et c'est une fierté de travailler pour ce géant de la haute technologie.La division de St-Laurent développe des produits et des systèmes qui sont les plus critiques sur les avions modernes mais elle peine à se développer, étant presqu'au même niveau qu'il y a 20 ans.
Pros
Domaine aérospatiale passionnant, grande expertise et grande qualité des produits.
Cons
Manque de diversité dans l'offre produits à St-Laurent, vision favorisant la réduction des coûts au détriment des produits innovants, de rupture.

Typical day can go from hectic to insane. Your hard work and good work ethics go unnoticed unless you are good friends with the manager.Most enjoyable thing is working with some fun coworkers so day can be fun and that's what keeps you going.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Tons of work, no work balance, no snacks, no incentives besides a annual bonus that pretty much they make you get on your knees to get it.

- Typical day would include a meeting with the mentor to discuss the targets and progress - I learn a lot about the research methods that need to tailor made for each project. - The management was very approachable - Most enjoyably part of job was the opportunities in terms of product development- the range of products they were working on and the global reach of the products

I was in the cost center so I did not interact directly with clients. There were a lot of long term employees there and they were complacent and not very efficient.
Pros
Great location, parking included. Good benefits/salary
Cons
High turnover; little room for upward mobility; Boys Club at senior level

Great company with dedicated hard working employees. The most fun part for a day is: colleagues walk in the trail with talking and laughing. that was very enjoyed.

I was the inventory/warehouse manager for 5 years. Thales was a fast paced company with an appropriate amount of stress level for a large corporation.

There are always deadlines to meet, and priorities to manage. There are many different groups and types of jobs. Some departments are short-staffed, so workload can be high.

An acceptable stepping stone to better opportunities, but little to no chance of advancement internally. Minimal to no opportunity to acquire additional education or certification. Management style is outdated, with no opportunity for work/life balance, no flexibility in work hours or work-from-home opportunity. Cuts and reductions mean everyone is working three or four jobs.

Your manager changes every few months. Projects get canceled/shifted frequently. Using very old technologies. Not up to date with trending/new technologies in the market.

Started off as an intern at the company and began growing my career here. It's a very well-paced environment, with a 'get your work done' and 'let's deliver to ensure the customer's happy' mentality. The downside is career advancement seems to get tougher as you age with the company- ironic.

Thales is left behind company. The culture is very political. You spend more time dealing with corporate politics than your actual work. Thales is very resistant to change.
