    Probably the worst company that I have ever worked for. They definitely do not care about their employees.

    Business Analyst II (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best part about is traveling to other locations and getting to see different parts of the world.

    ConsSalary, micromanaging, and the corporate culture is just awful. Feel like a number here and not a person.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsDecent benefits.
    Great work location.
    Average pay salary.

    ConsRacial inequality when it comes to promotions.
    Immature tactics by management.
    Terrible HR policies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure departments are following policies and are fair.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stodgy Aerospace Company, lacking imagination

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Chula Vista, CA

    ProsThe company has solid financial position and good reputation in the industry. Starting salaries are generally good and benefits are fair. Very flexible work hours and there is a strong community feel among the employees.

    ConsSenior leaderships lacks vision and ability to inspire. Promotional opportunities highly favor those with a willingness to relocate. Far too much meaningless busywork on LEAN. Not enough diversity in people or thought.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up! Just minding the store and making random acquisitions isn't a strategy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Oldsmar Goodrich was not a good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Oldsmar, FL

    ProsBecause the staff was so thin, you could get a wide variety of experience

    ConsManagement was way too demanding of employees and would not bring in the right people to help get the job done. Instead of helping getting things done and understanding what needed to be done, they would just ask us why things weren't done yet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that most of the people were doing as good of a job as they could

    Goodrich Engine Components (Chandler, AZ)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsThe people are the best thing about working at Goodrich, interaction is great, and they are all working towards a common goal.

    ConsUpper management does not know where the Chandler site is heading to, if they do, they have not given a clear vision to the workforce. Very political.

    Chandler site management has massive turnover in the last 3 years.
    Sending a lot of work to Mexico and laying off a lot of employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with the employees about the true direction of the Chandler organization, instead of just giving the people only what you want them to know at the time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    More Political than the Presidential Election

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chula Vista, CA

    ProsGoodrich provides a pretty significant tuition assistance program, as well as offers a number of health plans. Management is pretty flexible when it comes to needing time off

    ConsIf you expect to get a promotion for doing good work- You are in for a suprise. Promotions are based more upon time of service, rather than effort.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many levels of middle management. Employees often feel like their voices aren't heard, and don't matter. Senior management needs to embrace the People philosophy

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Goodrich People Philosophy

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsGoodrich has many different business units and a wide variety of places and things to work on. That is probably the best thing about Goodrich.

    ConsBecause Goodrich is really made up of a bunch of companies they have purchased over the past 20 years since exiting the tire business the company really has no identity. Its just a holding or investment company. There is a vast difference between the individual businesses and the treatment of people vary greatly as well. Some place people are well treated and at others they are treated unfairly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTurn up the heat on the Goodrich People Philosophy. It is clearly needed because of how some people have been treated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not all divisions of Goodrich are run the same

    Assistant Controller (Former Employee)
    West Hartford, CT

    ProsAt the division I was working, salaries were competitive compared to other manufacturers in the area

    ConsSenior leadership at my division was white men with 32 years experience and up. Your classic good ol boys group. They were very protective of their "turf"

    Advice to Senior Management"Do the right thing" This may seem silmplistic but there were many occasions when the best interest of the company and its employees was not followed

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
