      Run by self-serving managers

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Have now introduced a good work life balance.

      Cons

      Management is ordinary and its hard to progress up the ladder as those jobs are held by lifers and friends of other managers. Parts of the business have nil respect for workers.

      Great people, limited scope of work, good opportunities, ok pay

      7 Feb 2020 - Mechanical Engineer in Brisbane
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      People and culture are fantastic, good commitment to training for junior engineers, tap into the broader Airbus resource networks, opportunities to work in Europe if that's your thing, generally accommodating of flexible work arrangements, not too much overtime.

      Cons

      Limited scope of engineering work - all the really good stuff for mechanical engineers is done in Europe. Doesn't mean you can't learn, but there are limits to what we are allowed to do. Pay is not really competitive with Boeing and the like but you won't starve.

      When you arrive at a job where over half the IT department is missing

      23 May 2019 - IT Engineer in Pinkenba
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The pay is on par with what the industry is paying. I didn't have to work overtime alot.

      Cons

      High rate of turn over, and I wondered why when I started that most of the IT department was missing. They had their reasons. Here's why I didn't stay. There is a toxic culture of workplace bullying which HR are aware of. E.g. My manager comments about how he doesn't like religious people, particularly Baptists. Never met a single person there that genuinely liked their job in IT. You're treated like a resource, not a human, and are hassled when off sick.
