Programme Manager in Basildon
Good people, good working conditions problematic workload, too many peaks, and troughs, always reliant on winning a last minute order.I enjoyed working at Leonardo, at least the unit I worked for the wider company less so, as the Italian parent just loved to interfere. If you want excitement I'm not sure this is the place for you, on the other hand, if you want steady then you should consider it.
Senior Engineer in RAF Coningsby
Poor project management, all ex RAF, clueless in how to manage.Having come from an employment world of redundancies I worked hard in higher education to qualify myself for a career in this blue chip multi corporation. Alas once in I haven't got anywhere despite hard work and successful efforts to improvements; zero appreciation, zero recognition, zero support to improve one’s self worth, in fact the total opposite feeling deliberately held back. Same level colleagues are fantastic, some very clever hardworking and kind people within the business; we pull together very well, having to due to terribly poor middle management up to executive level who have no experience, knowledge and worse still, drive and ability to learn; often career hopping from one position to another with no loyalty to the job they took on. A real shame to know what really goes on behind closed doors.Ideal to coast and ride the gravy train to retirement whether you want to or not.Personal opinion to ultimate management failure - Project Managers, the latest fashion of the decade that could quite possibly eventually run the multinational aerospace into the ground.
