I worked at TransDigmRecommendsApproves of CEORecommendsApproves of CEO
Competent colleagues and management
Strong work ethics
Flexible hours (for salary)
Financially sound and stable
Ruthless in layoffs (3 layoffs in 12 months)
Corporate office dictates how things are done in individual divisions
Constantly changing priorities making it difficult for employees to focus on their work (partly due to resource constraints)
Advice to Management
Continue to seek new opportunities. Need to separate between Sales & Product Management so that the focus is there between getting new business as well as satisfying current customers. Get rid of the month-end 'meet the sales target' mentality. If we want to improve, we should continue to do that every week, not just during the last week of the fiscal month. All in all - great job!

It was almost a day long interview process where you get the chance to meet different people from the different departments you will interact. Most of the questions where behavioral, scenario based and experience related questions. They focused on my experience from college and the fit for the culture of the company.
