    Cons

    If I had to think of any it'd be that there isn't a hot meal lunch cafe' (They do have one that serves cold foods like salads, sandwiches, TV dinners etc).

    Pros

    Lots of rules jammed down your throat from Big brother. Use to be a great family company until big brother took over and started putting thier crazy idea in place

    Cons

    good insurance good pay but if you are not one of the good ole boys you are not going any where. For some reason they think if you have a degree even in underwater weving lessons they think that is great wrong!!!! you need to have people skills and know how to deal with customers buddie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wake up get out of your office and go visit your customers and workers they are the ones that make the business successful not you . You are nothing with out your customers or Workers

    Pros

    Most managers truly care about employee growth and well-being.
    Salaries and benefits are decent.
    Employees help each other.

    Cons

    Executive managements primary focus is growth, but there is no clear indication of how management will help alleviate burdened employees taking more and more workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring temporary contractors, and hire full-time employees.
    Otherwise, top talent will be lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since you are conducting business like Boeing, you should reward your people like they do.

    Pros

    aviall will support, champion and reward employees as long as they perform and look for solutions to their complaints. Leadership is taking initiative to seriously consider and create action plans to fix the areas employees feel we can be stronger in.

    Cons

    communication could be improved. If someone reaches out to you please at least acknowledge them. We all count on each other to achieve success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving in a great direction. Keep it up!

    Disorganized IT Shop many in charge, little gets done

    Pros

    Senior IT staff can be very helpful in working with the business, helping to bridge the gap between management goals and meaningful tech solutions.

    Cons

    The IT shop lacks a consistent vision of how to organize itself. Management is constantly in search of the latest IT trends and the optimal organizational fit that it looses sight of its own IT staff and their stake in the IT department. Now that benefits have been reduced IT staff will be less inclined to stay with the IT shop during times of self-induced management turmoil.

    Cronyism, low morale, nepotism!

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

    Pros

    A paycheck and average benefits.

    Cons

    Very serious cronyism and sexism, the most unprofessional environment I've ever experienced.
    Upper Management is typically promoted based on who they know and who they are dating, not what they know. If you don't 'play' their 'games' you will be ostracized. No place to stay long term and no room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling your managers to give you 'good reviews' and instead 'earn' the good reviews by making changes. You have too many managers who look after their 'friends' but not after the workers who are actually working. Clean up the HR department to start with!
