    I have been working at Aviall full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Good at the core business (selling airplane parts) and has a strong distribution network (40 locations worldwide)
    -The issues with the SAP implementation will eventually be worked out. While it's taken us a while to get back up to snuff, Aviall's culture doesn't allow for failure, so we'll make it through.
    -Potential opportunities for growth in the business
    Aviall is on a growth kick and will be successful. If you can wait it out, there will be a lot of positive growth in the business within the next few years. However, how that translates in to a "people plan"....

    Cons

    -Personal development is non-existent/lack of employee development planning.
    It's not easy to find and be considered for new opportunities, particularly if you're looking to go outside of your current functional area or transfer to Dallas from a branch (or vice-versa).

    -**Management is so focused on working to meet the numbers that they don't focus on their people.
    Communicating and leading changes, setting goals and helping employees reach them, breaking down silos, a.k.a. being a true leader, all takes time and effort. If managers and anyone who wants to be a leader spent half the time on what is considered "soft skills" (and therefore irrelevant in the current environment) that they do working what they consider to be their "main job", there would be a lot less discontent and bad energy around this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Management -
    Quit making so many assumptions: about people, about the market, about daily reality for the majority of people. Life is very different at the bottom of the pyramid than it is at the top.

    Knock down the silos by supporting cross-functional understanding and job opportunities, even to the "support functions" such as Finance, HR, Training, PR/Communications, Strategy, etc. Even though these functions don't make Aviall money directly, without them, there'd be no consistent growth.

    Follow through on the initiatives that try and better the "soft skills". Culture classes, leadership training, employee development, etc are not all just the responsibility of HR to build and implement. They can teach all the classes they want, but if no one actually buys in to the message and uses it on a daily basis, then it's all a waste of time and money and nothing has changed.

    Advice to Current Employees -
    Even the people "down in the trenches" need to realize that they can have a voice. If you don't like something, say something, stand up and own your opinion. Just because some people don't agree, that doesn't mean you're wrong.

    If people contact you or ask for help, please do them the courtesy of responding, even if it's to politely decline or say you're too busy. Just because something doesn't seem important to you doesn't mean that it's not important to someone else.

    Advice to Potential New Employees (and Current Employees who are Struggling) -
    You have to have a will of steel to be successful here. Nothing will be handed to you, but if you keep going for what you want, you can make it happen. There are people here willing to help you.
