- 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
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 Management style is outdated, with no opportunity for work/life balance, no flexibility in work hours or work-from-home opportunity.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.
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 a really good company to work for all along a 40 years career - at least.
Many people there were happy to work here since a long time.
I can only encourage people who would want to work there.
The company is in advance to give the solution of the city transportation in world with their CBTC base signalling products.
As a VOBC hardware designer, create the design documents, design drawing, revise the existing design and create product FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) procedure are the daily work in Thales.
It is joyful working in such a professional environment.
