    Great Benefit, Poor Pay for hard work

    Assembly Mechanic I (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits, Great Co-workers, overtime in most areas

    ConsPay, Hard to advance, Job base on how many standards you get not how much work you do,

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay people for what they are worth and promote people who have proven themselves and base on skills not base on who you know

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Opportunities unrealized...

    Engineer (Current Employee) Stuart, FL

    ProsThis company has a solid work base and a good amount of future committed work. The pay is generally fair, but to the low side of the average at most sites, as profit concerns drive the budgets to keep a tight reign on recurring costs. Multiple sites offer opportunities across the country, without having to change employers. Generally small sites that make up a large corporation.

    ConsWith the transition away from defined benefit pension plans, the company has not yet figured out how to effectively incentivize the workforce for long term employment. The overall benefits package is still a good package, but not significantly better than offered anywhere else. There has been a steady decline (not unlike everywhere else in the industry) in the overall value of the benefits package, resulting in a feeling among employees that their total pay and benefits is not a good as it was 5 or 10 years ago. "Casual Time" and "Acting Positions" are used more and more often basically having personnel perform work and tasks for no additional pay, and generally little or no recognition, as well. Again, this seems to be an overall industry trend, but whittles away at employee morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to be unique in the area / industry so that you are the employer of choice.
    Find a way to incentivize your trained and experienced personnel to stay.
    Devote more time and resources into making the workforce feel like part of one big family.
    Never forget your people are your most important resource!

    Learned a lot from co-workers in many areas of the industry.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsVery little over site so you are free to manage your time the way you need to get your job done. Work with many extremely knowledgeable people who I have learned a lot from.

    ConsStruggle to get projects through to management for approval and very little team work to accomplish similar tasks in a more effective efficient manner. There isn't much oppertunity for growth.

    Triumph Culture and Leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsTriumph Group (pre-Vought acquisition) was a very decentralized corporation consisting of a diverse group of aerospace manufacturing and MRO companies. Corporate functional staff was very limited, providing the business unit leadership to establish local site culture and performance. This can be good when the local site leadership is good and it can be not so good when local site leadership is not good. The pro is working in a 'small company' atmosphere with large corporate financial strength.

    ConsThe cons are when local site leadeship is poor. There is not close oversight or monitoring of company culture and a poor culture can endure for a long time leadiing to turnover and loss of company knowledge and continuity. There is not a big focus on employee retention.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImplement closer oversight of business units, focusing on people, employee satisfaction and culture.

    not horrible, not great

    Assembler (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsOvertime, if you want it. (its not by day, but by going over a 40 hr week). Seems stable compared to most aircraft. Small business so it's easy to know everyone and get noticed if you work hard. Employee of the month encouragement (however, it's always someone that has been with the company for several years).

    ConsNot union. Lower pay and benefits then most aircraft. Most people have been there for a long time so it will take a while to move up (not much opportunity for advancement). Raises aren't very large, even with good reviews. Overtime isn't really negotiable except for emergencies so plan to work 10 to 12 hr shifts throughout the week and to work on the weekends as well (can be hard on family life)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The work was exciting but, you were constantly fighting for resources.

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Park City, UT

    ProsThe product was industry leading and there are people who real care about turning out the best product possible. Design team was industry leading.

    ConsLack of key resources made it difficult to complete programs on schedule. There was a constant battle for key resources from inspection processes to assembly manpower.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStaff key areas with the manpower necessary to complete existing work flows in a timely manner. Invest in a shop scheduling package that will eliminate the constant manual intervention on the manufacturing floor that is so disruptive to work flows.
