GET YOUR PRIORITIES RIGHT
The most important thing I’ve learnt at Thales so far is project management. This includes how best to exercise conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities – especially to increase effectiveness. In a large organisation, like Thales, remaining driven and motivated is vital. I find it’s helpful to start with a to-do list for the week; this helps me to prioritise my working day.
FEEL RIGHT AT HOME
Joining Thales could, at face value, be a little overwhelming; it’s a large organisation. However, there is a great working culture here and this is lived and breathed by employees who go out of their way to make you feel very warmly welcomed. No question is considered too silly to ask. So if you’re in need of help, speak up; people are always willing to help even when they are busy.
I’d have to say it’s the ability to grow at your own pace. As long as you’re keeping up to date with your work, you can take on more responsibility. This means you’ll get to meet new people and grow your network. The challenges are there; you just have to be willing to step up and take them on. One thing’s for sure: you’ll never be bored.
LOVE WHERE YOU WORK
It’s a great place to work; so many career paths are available. If you’re interested in technology – or have a more specific interest in what Thales do – it makes sense to come and do it here. Why? Quite simply because you get to do what you’re passionate about within a business that’s passionate about delivering it. Saying that you’ve worked at Thales looks great on your CV. I think you’ll love working here.
