IRT Technician in Emsworth, Hampshire

Unbiased review?
After spending 2+ years here, I have noticed a fairly relaxed working environment which on a rare occasion gets busy. The work is fairly easy, but can get monotonous after a while as you are working on the same kit day after day, variety isn’t exactly rife here. If you don’t fit into a specific ‘clique’, expect to face a fairly isolated day without praise when going out of your way to make managements lives easier. If you do fit in, expect great banter and time spent with the people on site. Those with disabilities beware; heavy sanctions put in place from the company’s occupational health department will degrade your morale and enthusiasm for the company, with no understanding, support or care from management.

Good workplace colleagues and managers. Progression is weak.

Excellent company if you lack ambition
Great company to work for day to day as colleagues and mid management are excellent. Senior management are awful and lack communication downwards. UK business always seems London biased with little or no contract seeking outside the M25. Bid team terrible but never punished for not winning work while others are being made redundant. Would I recommend any to work for them , Yes learn what you can and move on unless your happy sticking in your for the whole of your career.

Ok but
I like working at Thales, but unfortunately there are too many instances of people not being paid for the work they are doing or being demoted by the management team which is demoralising and makes me less inclined to stay.

A well know international company with multicultural staff and a good reputation to work with. I have great experience working with my team and management.

What was my best 'Sales' experience in my previous role. Plus conversely which was my worst experience. What drives you to do your job How will I influence the technical engineers within the highly technical aspects of the equipment and how would I approach clients without having the technical engineering knowledge.
