    I worked at Ducommun as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I had a high level of autonomy in how I approached projects. Manager was just the best. Relaxed atmosphere. Very intelligent co-workers who were mostly electrical engineers. Worked with the latest versions of Developer Express and AutoCAD and used them on a very fast workstation.

    Cons

    IT locked down the machines, hindering my abilities to install software to get my work done. Very industrial and antiquated offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide new hires with a guide of what to study in order to start deeloping for the systems.

    I have been working at Ducommun full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Overall a good environment with good people. The shop has good, though old equipment. Production runs smoothly most of the time. Company supplies all tools so the cost of employment is very small. Reasonably relaxed environment.

    Cons

    When they say "some overtime" they mean don't plan on ever having just 40 hrs (or really even 50)
    Still working to implement Six Sigma and often seems like there is little interest in doing it correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect expectations with the metrics, don't just make pretty pictures and fancy speeches.

    People are friendly and supportive. Planning is a bit substandard.

    I have been working at Ducommun

    Pros

    People are friendly. Managers manage- they do the project schedule, and let the engineers engineer. There are no barriers between departments- production, engineering, and sales. Ducommun is working to develop new products now.

    Cons

    People work a lot of hours- esp. engineers. Many of the products are showing their age. Organization and planning could be improved. They are closing a site and bringing the workers to another site- which is out of phone lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More planning for infrastructure. Need to train more production people - almost the whole production staff has more than 25 years of service, and a large proportion is nearing retirement. Some of the production equipment needs to be brought up to date.

    Pros

    Management really cares about you as a person not just another number. When my son broke his arm my managers were very concerned abd accomadating through the entire process.

    Cons

    Not much room for learning new skill or growth with in the company.
