Safran Vectronix AG


Safran Vectronix as an employer

We cultivate an informal working climate which is characterized by the self-responsibility of each team member. This positive working climate and our friendly, cooperative work relationships are supported by the Employee Council’s right in involvement, say and decision.

Employee Benefits

Flexible work times

Our work time model is based on the Swiss machine industry collective work agreement and offers employees and company alike, high flexibility in modeling their work times. We work 40 hours per week. Our employees arrange their work times independently, taking into account customer requirements and team work.

According to age, we offer 5 to 6 weeks vacation per year; in addition there are a number of bridge-over days that must, however, be individually compensated. If you plan a long-term project, such as further education or a world trip, you may „save“ overtime to take a sabbatical at a later point.

Training and further education

Each and every employee is responsible for their own development. We see ourselves as partners in our employees‘ further development by encouraging professional education. Education starts on the job and is complemented by external seminars and – if required – in extensive further education. With a  predefined annual budget, we support many of our employees in their educational needs.


We all are directly involved in the company’s accomplishments.  In addition to our salaries, we receive a bonus based on Vectronix’ success.
