    I worked at ARINC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The majority of people I have worked with are extremely bright and very personable. The benefits are actually pretty good there compared to most places I've worked.

    Cons

    The management has shown favoritism in certain cases. The are a lot of office politics as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management should involve some of the lower level employees in there decision making more often.

    Pros

    Everyone is very knowledgable in their field and willing to help you succeed. ARINC encouraged advancement to other departments for new and continued growth opportunities. Work-life balance was wonderful! If I had any issues to tend to at home, my mangers understood and worked with me. The pay was pretty good for all employment levels too.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons from my side. I have had a couple bad experiences with other companies that make me appreciate ARINC as a whole even more.

    I worked at ARINC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work is can be challenging and fun, especially when it is busy. Above average benefits, medical plan is good, plenty of time off.

    Cons

    Many of the managers worked on the floor prior to becoming managers. Most of them were mediocre employees while on the floor, and are poor managers. This job requires membership in a union. Unfortunately a person's seniority carries more weight than their job performance. Management chooses to ignore issues when it is convenient. Preserving their jobs (mgmt.) , is more important than raising morale and holding people accountable for their work and behavior. 24/7 operation, never closes. Scheduling is based on seniority (again that 9-letter word)!!.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers from outside or other areas of the company. Cater to those employees who choose to act professionally and responsibly. Raise the standards!!!! Do not "rubber-stamp" the yearly evaluations. Replace employees who don't want to be here or simply cannot do the job, they are a "cancer"; they lower morale and frustrate those who choose to conduct themselves in a professional manner. Management needs to spend more time in the building. Some of the managers are out of the building by 4pm, Fridays, weekends and holiday. Management needs to be more visible and accountable.

    Pros

    Room for growth if you are willing to work for it. Many very good, caring, and kind people work here.

    Large variance between senior leaders in different areas. Like any place else, some senior leaders cannot make decisions and are very poor leaders but some are excellent.
