    Terrible place to work

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Circor Aerospace

    Pros

    They make a great product. Lots of potential. Lots of great people trying to keep it going.

    Cons

    No management direction. Management changes their direction every week trying bail a sinking ship. The have no cohesive plan and are very reactive. People who have worked there for years and been promoted to management are not will to listen to advice from more experienced people and consultants. Lots of layoffs due to loss of satisfied customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to clean house and get people in management who actually know how to run an aerospace company. Get rid of deadwood and hire some people with management training eh know how to treat the workers with respect.

    Pros

    is a relatively clean workplace , good people working there

    Cons

    everyone tries hard , very skilled machinists some 40 pus years of experience , all being treated like they were lost children, management heavy , so the solution ? they hire even more management ! they just arent getting it ! some areas such as tool crib and maintainence has No management at all !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a New leader that doesnt do bandaid fixes ,more managers in the shop just creates more, problems.
      actually maybe you should just sell this division to someone who knows how to run a machine shop !

    Former Employee - Design Engineer  in  Corona, CA
    Former Employee - Design Engineer in Corona, CA

    I worked at Circor Aerospace full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    CAP Engineering secretary or administrative assistant was helpful, professional and maintained a positive attitude despite a high pressure, unhealthy environment.

    Cons

    The director was clueless as to who was performing and was easily swayed by a several lackeys who spent most of their time attempting to make trouble within the department. It was a sweat shop, they used you to work impossible hours over multiple projects with virtually no resources to do the work. RMSS support poor at best due to extreme workload of single POC and possibly lack of US standards knowledge. There were three trouble makers whom were favored by the clueless director, one left in 2011 and another left in 2012 for Moog. The third is still there in a senior position and spends most of his time advertising minor mistakes of others and taking credit for other's works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing  in  Corona, CA
    Current Employee - Manufacturing in Corona, CA

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

    Pros

    They are very organized place to work.

    Cons

    The management seems to create a very stress filled place to work. They seem to immerse themselves in the thick of thin things and never seem to get things done. Another word wheel spinning going on there. Also, there's very high turn employee over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, and quit acting like everything is good. Quit fooling yourselves in to thinking that your employees are happy. They are not! Quit trying to do more with less. You are killing your employees. A minimum of four employees have died over the last four years.

    Very unsatisfactory engineering environment to work in

    Former Employee - Project Engineer  in  Corona, CA
    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Corona, CA

    I worked at Circor Aerospace full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the employees are professional, supportive and non- confrontational. The HR senior rep was a good person, well balanced and very professional in her standards.

    Cons

    While the rest of the company was OK, the engineering department was the penultimate place for workplace bullying to grow out of control. This involved just a couple of people, but spread to others as they followed the 'bully rules' (New York Times article).

    Director was clueless and supported poor behavior and clever sabotage of certain employees.

    Extremely high turnover due to depressive work place atmosphere and back stabbing on the part of several employees.

    No thank you, acknowledgements or mentions allowed on performance reviews for going consistently above and beyond job description, such as assisting other engineers in their projects, writing technical strategy power points for the director, taking on extra work when requested and more.

    Low raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advice I give to those at Circor International who is responsible for hiring executives at Circor Aerospace, do an anonymous employee survey, find out what's really been going on.
