    I worked at Esterline full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great team collaboration, good benefits, positive outlook

    Cons

    Management is not connected to those who are actually out doing the work. They tend to bulldoze over the sales team and then create unattainable expectations. Great ability to work with minimal guidance, however, they need to work on creating a way to stay in touch with the teams more consistently. Very easy to get lost in the weeds and then its too late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay connected and support the teams. Listen....Listen...Listen....Work on addressing issues immediately and directly instead of brushing under the rug and not communicating to employees

    The HR and Management need to reevaluate the salaries if they want to keep people.

    I worked at Esterline

    Pros

    Great new facility
    Quiet manufacturing area
    Some very talented and hard working Engineers and Production staff
    New ERP and PLM system

    Cons

    Less focus on employees
    Profit sharing is based on three other sister companies metrics so even if you make your numbers you can still be penalized over something you have no control over.
    Senior Management is not focused on sustaining manufacturing equipment for the future.
    Many processes lack process control due to weak Manufacturing Engineering support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on some core projects and let your Engineers get a few wins. If you don't the competition will continue to cherry pick your talented electrical and mechanical engineers.
