    Pros

    none - there is nothing good to say about this company

    Cons

    everything - hostile environment, inhumanly bad, malicious people. They torture physically and mentally and they can ruin your life. Better stay unemployed, than work among such bad, mean and rude people. If they don't like you, they make up any senseless reason to fire you. You have to be bad, incapable, unprofessional and lazy like them. Every second of my working day in Agusta was like a horror movie.

    Advice to Management

    The Management is untouchable, they don't care and don't listen any advices. They do what they want and no one controls them.

    Pros

    Low pressure work environment, for a manufacturing company. Weak leadership at the very top, seems to strengthen at about senior management level on down. Company has fatal flaws that stand in the way of making great strides towards being a premier manufacturer of helicopters in the United States.

    Talented employee to lazy employee ratio about 1:6. If you go the extra mile and make good logical decisions, you will be offered opportunities to be promoted in almost all areas of the business on about a yearly basis.

    In this company, good talent is recognized and rewarded on a very favorable basis, and it's easy to be a star player compared to the status quo.

    Great company to work for as entry-level to 2-3 years experience, if you are ambitious and hard working.

    Benefits are almost unparalleled. 100% company-paid medical, dental, vision. 401k with good match, pension after 1 year, opportunities for overtime and good vacation and sick time policy.

    Cons

    Broken communication chains between CEO & VP level and rest of the business. Most employees can and do come to work and surf the internet for 75% of their day and get away with it. Once hired it's very difficult to be fired. This may sound like a Pro, but if you want to advance your career you will find that most employees have given up or never tried to work hard, and it will demotivate you.

    Lazy employees who under-perform and are never penalized breed laziness in even the most determined and passionate employees over time.

    Currently, the company culture is highly resistant to firing or laying off employees. Good or bad, depends on what kind of employee you strive to be.

    People leave on their own accord, virtually never the other way around.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to trim the fat.

    Dead weight in every single department that must go if what should pass for acceptable is truly acceptable.

    To HR:
    Allow managers to be candid in performance reviews (don't force them into parameters under the bell curve to fulfill self-serving reduction in available bonus money).

    The good should be rewarded the most, the "ok" should keep their jobs, and the bad should be let go.
    This motivates everyone to continuously improve- The bad will improve enough to keep their jobs, the ok will improve to strive to get rewarded, and the good will be pressured to be even better for risk of dilution of available bonus from "ok" group improving into "better than ok".
