    Opportunity for growth, but this usually comes second to schedule.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work challenging projects and for business travel around the globe. Opportunity to work on large aircraft structure on diverse programs.

    Cons

    The work is engaging but the work culture is borderline toxic. Overtime is mandated with 6 day work weeks. There's not a realistic sense of the staffing/software/hardware requirements for a project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value and invest more into your direct employees: training, mentor programs, financial incentives for sacrificing on big programs.

    Dedicated to their shareholders, resentful of their customers, and suspicious of their employees.

    Pros

    Triumph grows through acquisition, and is fortunate to inherit much of its talent. The facility I work at is full of experienced people with diverse talents that have enriched the growth of my own career.

    Cons

    At least in the case of our site, Triumph does very little to promote the growth of the business or the employees. Stated company values of integrity, innovation, quality, service, execution and commitment all pale to actual values of revenue, revenue, revenue... Salaries lag national norms. Training and career advancement opportunities are sparse. Investment in innovation, new business, and infrastructure is almost non-existent. Our customers and competition know it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is unfortunate, in my experience Triumph employees work to bring success to the company. The employees work to build good products, they try to grow their customer relationships, they try to expand their market, and they try to innovate. However, often one of the primary barriers to success in all these arenas is Triumph itself. I believe the revenue issues will take care of themselves if companies are given tools and opportunities to be successful. My experience says Triumph has the people and ability to operate with that mindset, but chooses not to.

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Was a great place to work until about 2.5 years ago. High margins and great work enviroment until 2.5 years ago

    Cons

    Recent management changes have changed the entire outlook on this company. Seen over 20 good employees go and current employees feel threatened. Nothing will be said or they will lose their jobs but recommend senior management please do something. Management is not what you think in this facility. Need help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recommend staff be screened and thinned. True feedback from the employees will only come out if they are assured they won't lose jobs. Apperantly the feedback your getting is not what is really happening in the facility. Sorry but most of the employees don't have a say as to who is on staff and really don't like the staff. Tough pill to swallow but the truth.

    Pros

    Eight hour day is the norm.

    Cons

    The man running this place appears to have some mental health issues. Everyone is afraid of him and because of this his managers do not keep him informed of problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Triumph Group needs to take a hard look at what is going on at this operation.

    Pros

    flexibility of work hours, pay is okay for salary employees

    Cons

    They hate to pay you overtime, total disregard for your talents. Just want you to come in and do your job and go home. They're not vested in their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your brightest, young talent. They are the future of the company.

    Pros

    all the overtime you can stand,....for now

    Cons

    I am a machine operator but when I get my check it says bonding mechanic. I get a 30cent raise each year and am paid paid $12.55 to run a 2 million dollar machine after 3 years of service. I work regular 12-16 hour shifts and am constantly criticized everytime i take a saturday or sunday off to be with my family. Passed over time and time again for movement to day shift by juvenile enployees even though its done by "senority". Lied to about many plant issues by h.r. representatives. Management tells lies about what their employees say. Removal of all good benefits after buy out by triumph. You have been warned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to come to Milledgeville and clean house. The management is stagnant and corrupt.

    Pros

    Profitable, busy, in a nice area outside of Winston Salem.

    Cons

    Understaffed, long hours, poor management who does not understand technical aspects of running the business (machining). Manufacturing Engineers,..run from this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO Jeff Frisby needs to do some house cleaning in the management ranks. This was a great place when I started there but, it has become a place where people are NOT used to their strengths, where people are viewed as easily replaced, where there has been more turnover in the last 2 years than the entire 10 years I worked there (due to current management).

    Vought Aircraft was wonderful. Triumph Group, however, does NOT appreciate their employees.

    I have been working at Triumph Group

    Pros

    Great location, great engineers, great R&D group

    Cons

    - Triumph promised that we would see no big changes, just a new company name....NOT TRUE
    - Removed all no-cost perks from salaried employess (purchased vacation, ability to make up sick time)
    - Took away retiree benefits from already retired employees
    - Reduced our already published end of the year bonuses due to a "calculating" error that Triumph discovered
    - Removed "Employee satisfaction" from corporate goals.
    - Triumph was astonished that we had people working with 35 years of service. That will never happen again. People able to retire, have left the company that would have stayed longer. New engineers will look elsewhere because the benefits and "perks" are not competitive with other aerospace companies anymore.

    TRIUMPH GROUP is taking advantage of the poor economey and has set our company back 30 yrs in corporate evolution. "40 hrs/ 2 weeks vacation/ you better be happy to have a job" mentality.
