    I worked at Curtiss-Wright Controls full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hourly can work all the overtime they want and don't have to justify there workload. Salary work less than 8 hours day and no overtime.

    Cons

    ok place to work if you like a double or triple workload, then when you leave they hire 2 or 3 people to replace you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moral sucks because of workload and some employees carry the load and others get away with doing very little.

    Pros

    You can definitely gain a lot of international experience if you go with the flow and always agree with management. Pay is pretty decent but beware of the commission and bonus programs.

    Cons

    Management seems to be constantly changing and creates a unstable atmosphere for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a lesson from some of the really great presidents and CEOs i.e., Valter Baldacinni of Umbra, Ed King of King Radio, and John Kuperhand. Learn to value your employee's as your most important asset and not see them as just a number.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Management needs to better balance decisions which make the Quarterly performance numbers look good with decisions which improve chances for long term success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your people and listen to their input about how to make the Company better.
