    Pros

    Great benefits for now, until they make everyone change to HSA.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted if you don't know someone. Basically if you have no value-- you get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue!

    Pros

    Great Benefits and local discounts

    Cons

    Longetivity and friendships seem to get you advancement vs abilities. Will keep dead weight and poor employees rather than look to improve the department.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the people that try to improve the business rather than to walk on egg shells for fear of making someone who has been there a long time mad.

    Good place to work if you are single or at least no children. Need more flexibility for hourly employees.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Pay is pretty good. Lots of resources, like tools and machines that make some jobs easier.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not great. Not enough flexibility for hourly employees. Must use personal time or vacation for every single hour away from work. If you have an appointment or an event at your child's school you can not make up the time if you are an hourly employee. You must use all of the 40 hours per year of personal time and then your 80 hrs vacation. When working 10 hour days and overtime you have no choice sometimes. If you have a sick child or you get sick, your paid time off goes quick and you could get punished for having unpaid hours if you are out of these allotted hours.

    Advice to Management

    Make working hours more flexible for employees so they can better balance work and family life without having to use up all their paid time off

    Pros

    Interesting product, mix of techies and manufacturers.

    Cons

    Some application team members resist outside consulting best practices, but this hardly differentiates them from many (most) IT divisions.

    Pros

    Great hours. Great pay. Great benefits. Awesome people. I worked there in high school. I was a part of their youth apprenticeship program. I loved every minute of it.

    Cons

    Hard to get rehired. My internship was complete & couldn't get rehired. I've tried every Thursday since my internship was complete to get rehired and nothing has happened. Not even an interview.

    Advice to Management

    Pull the application don't let a computer do it for you.

    Pros

    Outstanding opportunity to apply your skills In aviation manufacturing, on a world class aircraft with a world class company

    Cons

    Sometimes, it not what you know, or how well you apply your talent, it will still boil down to who you know

    Advice to Management

    Critique your employees based on the quality of the work they do, and not on how well they interact with other members of the team

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the area (Savannah, GA).

    Cons

    Culture leaves a lot to be desired. Hard work is expected, and not usually appreciated or rewarded. Lots of talented people, unfortunately stuck because management knows they don't have employment options in the local market.

    Advice to Management

    Start living the leadership competency model. Stop the incompetent managers from bullying to get results. Recognize the people who have been loyal and hardworking.

    Pros

    Great company with decent benefits. Lots of opportunities for career growth. The location and is great and the company is in a growth and expansion period.

    Cons

    Lack of promoting individual employee personal growth and engagement, clear assignment of responsibilities and holding individuals accountable for results. Processes and procedures are not clearly defined or unnecessarily complex. Routine procedures and tasks involve too many personnel and are inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Establish clear process and procedures for routine activities. Lots of opportunities for process improvement and organization. Provide employees the resources, give clear directions and hold individuals accountable for results. Management is not on the same page, too many layers of lower - middle managers. Too many initiatives. Lack of clear strategy or priorities.

    Pros

    co-workers are nice. Managers would let employee almost figure out the best approach.

    Cons

    Most middle managers are very nice but they have no say. IT department is run by its director and controlled by HCL

    Advice to Management

    Let managers and employees get involved in the process of implementation. Once HCL is finished the implementation and no managers or employees master the subject, that is when the problem start.
