    I worked at Goodrich

    Pros

    The company ran by the lean manufacturing culture. I learned a lot about continuous improvement and the different workflows the company had within their departments.

    Cons

    They were bought out by UTC and I heard from there their culture at some extent was diminishing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better guidance on new employees.

    Pros

    Cared about people not just profits. Good advancement. competitive compensation

    Leadership mostly interested in enriching themselves--making the numbers regardless of impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember corporate jets don't make you smart

    Pros

    Great engineering opportunities. I worked in Software Engineering was able to be part of some pretty interesting projects. Educational opportunities encouraged.

    Cons

    Management is always chasing the next big contract, which is true of any big contractor. Still, the ups and downs that come with that do not provide a sense of stability.

    I worked at Goodrich as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good, predictable hours, opportunity for suggesting improvement.

    Cons

    Very 5S / organization intensive culture to the point of irritating some less organized (but hard-working and effective) employees. Can be difficult to see the "big picture" as a subcontractor. Some machinists didn't realize how critical their work was and how easily parts can be scrapped from "slight" damage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss issues with employees more often. Don't stay bunkered inside your office for weeks on end.

    Pros

    Good benefits package and ability to move up.

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment requires patience and ability to be flexible. Can affect work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote problem solvers who care about fixing real issues and not resume builders/empty suits. There are enough of those already.

    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in Monroe, NC

    I worked at Goodrich full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was close to my house. So on commuting time it was excellent.

    Cons

    Did not receive any feedback from the supervisor. It was a temporary position. After working there for three months it would have been good to have received some feedback. It was only a three month assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some feedback would have been nice. For temporary assignments, three months should be enough time to decide whether the candidate would be a good fit for the organization.
