Compensation is average,
Lean Initiatives used to run the business
Great people to work with overall.Cons
Merger with Orbital led to several layoffs
Promotions slow and raises low to average.
Management is running the facility too Lean.
Not enough Technicians & Inspectors, necessitating a lot of overtime, leading to tired, burnt out staff.
Training overall is below average which means lots of mistakes, rework, repair and scrap.
Equipment is dated overall and not enough to do the jobs efficiently.Advice to ManagementAdvice
