    Pros

    Tight knit group of engineers (within your division). Everyone works as a team to get the job done. Managers, in general, look out for their group and keeps them informed. Provides a career development roadmap

    Cons

    Slightly stuck in old ways of engineering. Focus on Lean practices can distract from real issues hindering progress


  2. A place to build a career.

    Pros

    Good salary, well managed company, good location, great opportunities if you're smart and willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Penny pinching culture is sometime "penny wise but pound foolish"

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make everyone happy!

    Pros

    Lots of training and opportunities to learn new things. Excellent work-life balance. Good benefits and 401k matching (even for interns). Supportive management. Good cafeteria. Lots of interest groups.

    Cons

    Terrible locations. (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) Very little vertical movement (management tends to be old men who stay forever). Dingy working environment, outdated, etc. Commercial area nearby is lacking in restaurants and culture. Below average pay.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to move into job functions more easily. I felt slightly stuck in one business unit and location. This is the reason I didn't come back, along with location.

    Pros

    The best reason is the flexibility of the positions. It is very easy to work around the company because the company is about providing avionics and software packages to the industry. So it's very easy to switch projects if you don't like it. Also, company is medium size which meant that it was easier to meet higher up management. As an intern, we met with the CEO on one of our intern meetings

    Cons

    Cedar Rapids Iowa is a very nice city, but growing up from New York City, it was very boring.

    Pros

    The management and projects were great, it was an excellent experience for a college student to learn about their industry. I always felt like I had someone to ask questions of and figure out the next step in a project.

    Cons

    Occasionally, I would finish a project and it seemed as if they didn't really have anything ready for me to pick up- I would have a day interim with no work to do.


  7. Great Avionics Company
