    Pros

    Good insurance, vacation plan. Worked with some really great people.

    Cons

    The company was Vought Aircraft until Triumph bought it out. Triumph took away a lot of perks. Very bad management. Good ol boy system. Lousy product quality.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better!! Give them better opportunities for advancement within the company.

    Pros

    The Vought Company that Triumph acquired used to be an aerospace prime contractor.

    Cons

    The best days of this company were long ago. The company struggles to get new business and has shed a lot of its technical capabilities. It's hard to have any kind of career here. There is limited possibility for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Acquire more business or the best employees will continue to leave.

    Pros

    Management is not pushing a lot of overtime. Which is good because they claim everyone is in management and then pay no time and a half. They are crooks.

    Cons

    This company does not care about employees. They have systematical gotten rid of all employees who have any seniority replacing them with low paid young workers. They are now at the point where major capital projects are sitting idle because of the lack of skilled workers. Every year it is the same story. Poor mouth the upcoming year followed by a round of layoffs and no raises or low raises. The stock price is in the crapper and workers are actively leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    Your business plan is failing and your stock price prove it.

    Fire the CEO!

    Pros

    Legacy management and cultures are what made Triumph Group a success. That was of course until the current CEO assumed his role in 2011.

    Cons

    The CEO's incompetence is abuntantly clear. The Stock performance is testimony and speaks volumes regarding his inability to run this organization. Since taking over, he has made numerous strategic mistakes in his decision process, elevated and listened to the wrong people and has lost many of the most talented leaders that made Triumph successful over the years. How long will he be tolerated? The Board of Directors needs to remove him before he further damages the company!

    Advice to Management

    Board of Directors, REMOVE THE CEO!

    Pros

    The pay is decent and the hours are good. The overtime hours are good also.

    Cons

    Everything else. Free will employment. Won't give warnings, if they are any. There are people playing around who never get a warning or fired. They fire the hardworking people. They show favoritism. Racist. I wouldn't let my worst enemy work here!

    Advice to Management

    They need to change everything, but hopefully an honest competitor with run them out of business.

    Pros

    Great bunch of people, want to do what is right and put out a quality product on time, on cost and on quality

    Cons

    Difficult to achieve with cuts in headcount and budget. Not really world class environment, more like a place eaking out the last drop of earnings

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the business, make the decision to upgrade, replace equipment and decide on a future for the Grand Prairie site, either upgrade or shut it down and put it ut of its misery

    Pros

    They are in a lucrative market where there seems to be many opportunities.

    Cons

    I was in Program Management in the Vought Aircraft Division for almost 20 years. The management of this company has driven it from a successful tier 1 integrator to a tier 3 parts maker. Most of their current customers hate them and their employees are looking for a way out. They get more more business by buying it and make promises they don't have enough able staff to keep. Inevitably it has become a sweatshop and a place in which no one can take pride.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate your business via vertical integration and reduce your dependency on outside suppliers. Rebuild the ability to design, launch, develop and scale to full rate production - that was your discriminator and your strength. When the product is stable, then off-shore and reduce cost, but always maintain the ability to do it yourself. Control your supply chain - not the other way around.

    Pros

    The pay is good but that's about it. I learned a lot about how to control yourself in chaotic situations. Also learned how a business is not supposed to be ran.

    Cons

    When hired on initially, it was a great place to work. Now its a joke, Management treats employees like children and they make up their own rules as they go along.
