What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people. Everyone I've met throughout the company has been very welcoming and helpful, this was especially useful when first starting.I really like my job and look forward to moving within the company. The only downside at the moment, which is nothing to do with the company, is that I'm not using the theoretical knowledge I learnt whilst at University as I studied Aerospace Engineering. However, I am really enjoying the change and the steep learning curve.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
One of the best things about being a Thales Graduate is the rotation scheme you are able to experience different businesses within Thales from Avionics to Defence and also changing roles enables you to decide what you would like to focus on after the grad scheme. Thales are also supporting graduates who have come off the scheme to find opportunities and progress within the company to senior positions. The on-boarding process was very slow.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The variety of projects that the company is involved in and the pure size of it. You could be working on a transport system in your first placement and 9 months later be working on a thermal imaging sight for the British Army. You also get stuck in to quite a lot of in depth work very early on and are not treated as 'just a graduate', there is also a great support network, from your peers all the way up to senior management.The worst part probably mirrors the best, you really have to be a self starter, You cant' afford to sit around until someone tells you what to do. Due to the size of the company, you might not always be in face to face contact with your line manager and hence you often have to find the best use of your time yourself.
