    Pros

    Benefits, Great Co-workers, overtime in most areas

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people for what they are worth and promote people who have proven themselves and base on skills not base on who you know

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

    With 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 ManagementAdvice

    Figure 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!

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    Struggle 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.

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Triumph 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Implement closer oversight of business units, focusing on people, employee satisfaction and culture.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Overtime, 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).

    Cons

    Not 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)

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

    I worked at Triumph Group

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Staff 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.
