    I worked at Thales

    Pros

    Advantages: 1. If you are good at the job, there are plenty of opportunities for you to choose to work on. They are quite flexible. 2. A lot of large scale projects ongoing. Good to start there and grow for few years.

    Cons

    Disadvantages: If you are good at the job, you may end up getting a load of tasks, which may end up a lot of over time. Advice is to think before accepting and learn to say no and justify if you are overloaded.
