    Pros

    Great place to work. I spent 30 years there. I liked being able to move around and do different jobs within the company. I was always encouraged to learn new skills and I received a lot of company paid training. the pay and benefits were above average for this area. There were times I had to work some long hours but that was not the rule. Work/life balance was very good for me but I chose not to go into management.

    Cons

    some managers were downright brilliant but the majority were mediocre to just good and a lot lacked people skills. You have to be in charge of your own career and not get sidetracked into a dead end. You have to be prepared for layoffs also but that is just part of the aerospace business and you are usually able to draw unemployment for a while.

    Advice to Management

    Have more face to face contact with employees. Too many meetings.

    Pros

    This company really has it together. It is good to work for and perform well in the market place.

    Cons

    The company is investing a lot in technology to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Short term this is a good investment. Long term, as it become more and more obvious that the computer climate models are wrong; this investment will become less viable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Excellent benefits. Good work environment. Paid tuition!

    Great place to start and grow a career. Exposure to a great deal of projects and responsibility as a first year engineer. Very good learning environment.

    Cons

    Red tape and slow processes can make innovation at the smaller levels very difficult. Recent cutbacks on military spending has hurt the defense side of the company. There's been many layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline processes to make changes a faster, more efficient process. Too much time is wasted in meetings and getting a dozen signatures for a simple part change. Allow more room for innovation from the employees that are doing the work.
