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

    Pros

    Some good people work there, but a few bad apples can really spoil everything. A few of the supervisors are very experienced and do a great job.

    Cons

    Large amount of family members, sometimes causing the hiring and keeping of less competent people. Non-family members are somewhat left out of the loop. Hire because of incentives and then lay off. Also, a lot of the engineers that stay don't have degrees. The newer younger people in the more technical areas like sonic and engineering end up leaving due to low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training has a long way to go. Some folks are hardly trained. There have also been instances of new people training new people.

    Pros

    People I work with. Work is interesting. Good location.

    Cons

    People I work for. Work/Life balance is non-existent. Management doesn't care about you as a person. Overtime is used to make up for poor management decisions and scheduling. Management doesn't care about your opinion or ideas.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.

    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.
