Innovative and fun
Working at Thales gave you a sense of purpose. Lots of collaboration, support and encouragement to do the best that you can. No pressure to meet unrealistic expectations. Senior Staff are exceptionally supportive.
Travel interstate for inductions and meetings, freedom to get your job done without micromanaging issues. I would highly recommend anyone to work at Thales.
Pros
staff collaborations, team environment
Cons
none

Stable Work
We work in a Major Hazard Facility and deal with explosives on a daily basis. There is alot of Loading and unloading trucks with forklifts.
But get a poor pay compared with other warehousing companies.

Only positives it is close to home I can work days. There is a little bit of Overtime at times which helps.

Job is permanent with evergreen contract to the defence force.

Management biased
Management lost staff who wanted a change of project and they would not facilitate the move internally. They are more concerned about being right in their mind than being fair or just.

Not a bad place to work.
If you want an eye opener then this is the place, you will be amazed in what you make and work on out there. So much security and fantastic ppl to work for and the employees there make you feel very welcomed you really enjoy going to work. Only issues is not very secure jobs there. They mainly hire casuals as the company realise on contracts from customers all over the world so if they have not much products to make then your out of a job.

Fun workplace
I have learnt a lot of things from my wonderful colleagues and managers, they were all fun peoples to work with. Workplace culture is diverse and supports you amazingly. The hardest part of the job was walking in the tunnels for long distances, the most enjoyable part was to give support to the client in OCC.

Just a big ship, lost at sea.
Communication is poor.
Management never seem certain of what is the next contract or the required workforce numbers.

Machines are old and are always breaking down.

They hire many casual operators, only to give them a brief amount of employment, and then don,t bother to keep in contact, basically leaving them in limbo.( Refer first 2 points)

Low morale, and negative culture on factory floor, of long term employees.

An embarrassing situation,
Pros
Snail paced environment.
Cons
No variety, stifled promotion opportunities

Excellent work atmosphere
Cons
Long hours at times

Toxic
Overworked and mismanaged staff; if you are French you are valued, otherwise you are treated as a consumable. Politics rule and decisions are made by the French around the coffee machine.
Pros
Central Melbourne
Cons
Not treated as a human being

High Corporate Governance
- Good Engineering Practice
- High respect but not much recognition

- Poor Management

- Everyone tends to be a leader on their own accord

- Difficult to convince management with forward thinking, as they tend to take direction only from Thales France
Pros
Health Care

No job satisfaction
I feel like this role is a glorified data entry role.

I did not gain any job satisfaction during my time in this role.


The work performed was dictated by the Project Managers and no suggestions were really made by the planners. We were purely there to run reports and enter the monthly budget that was given to us.
Pros
Supported staff development
Cons
No job satisfaction
