    Pros

    If you really get after it and make a point to shine you can. You can get your name out there and be known by putting in the effort. This will open up doors for you however it comes down to deciding if you want to continue to stay or not.

    Cons

    Lack of training, low pay, little growth development, poor communication, old school thinking, SAP, and sometimes hostile coworkers. Also the company never makes plan and the German's rule it with an iron fist. They love to shaft their American companies.

    Advice to Management

    If top talent is desired than be willing to pay for the top talent. Start focusing more on the level of service instead of all the small details that mean nothing but yet somehow trip the company up.

    Pros

    Big company with many locations. Has scale to be successful if it could learn to execute.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed company. Losing market share to Reliance and other key players in the industry. Financial performance dramatically lags behind other competitors. Known for hiring outside salesman who bring along a book of business and then letting them go through a restructuring in a couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some outside talent.


  3. If you need a big pay, this is not your company to work for.

    Pros

    To get an experience in aerospace industry and learn supply chain management.

    Cons

    They don't pay you well. What you do is account management, which is very demanding and challenging. However, they will keep you as "customer sales rep" so they don't have to pay you more. Additionally, you don't learn anything about supply chain management. All we see is bad management. It's surprising big business is moving forward with this management.

    Advice to Management

    They need to communicate well with other employees with regards to any new procedures. Sales reps have to face with clients every time management implements new procedure in last minutes.
