Programme Manager in Basildon
on 24 January 2022
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.

Get ready to go through the motions.
First and foremost, the company makes some really interesting technology across both radar and advanced targeting divisions and there's definitely some great places you can go within the company. However overall I'd have to say the people and culture within the company have been downright disappointing. There is a lack of professionalism in conduct across the board and there is a massive blame culture which the company has attempted to shake off but is still very much present. This usually comes from management who have a lack of engineering understanding but I have seen it within engineering teams as well. The company attempts to make itself look like it is a forward thinking progressive company in the public eye, which is a stark contrast to the way it is on the inside as they have been pretty much working in the same ways since the 90s. I started here on the grad scheme which I really wouldn't recommend to anyone. The modules are a complete waste of time and a distraction from your day job. I'd recommend trying to join on as an engineering technician, as the progression is pretty much the same but without all the grad scheme garbage. Many of the graduates on the scheme and just off the scheme are now complaining about unfairly conducted salary reviews. Day-to-day it can be quite difficult to get any work done as the company processes are so padded out. Attempting to change this is near impossible as so many are just stuck in their ways and unwilling to implement change. Responsibility and accountability is held with a sole few in engineering departments, which means any time you want to progress something you have to go through about 10 different people. This can wear you down over time and eventually you'll get fed-up and condition yourself to the slow pace that everyone generally works at. Hardest part of the job - Dealing with difficult people who have an old school mentality to approaching tasks. Best part of the job - Seeing your hard work come to fruition. The canteen is fantastic.

Productive sociable work place
Great place to work if your a permie.You have to work 6-2pm and 2-10pm week about shifts which gives you a long weekend every other one.All the staff are helpful and welcoming.
Senior Engineer in RAF Coningsby
on 1 February 2021
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.
