  1. Lack of accountability at mid-management level.

    I worked at Circor Aerospace full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good incentives to improve knowledge base. Company genuinely "seeks" ways to improve all aspects of business practices, with a positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability at mid-management level, not pro-active (through 2013) at the senior level. Work standards are very poor at the least, and sometimes non-existent. Major effort is put into Kaisen events, only to ignore most of the suggested changes / corrections. Employee performance is evaluated on personal levels, disregarding any inefficiencies in the job procedures. The apparent "theme" when results expectations are not what they should be, is to point the finger at subordinates and say, "It's their fault", then wait for the next "downsizing" to kick them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your jobs. Collecting a salary while seeing how long you can "stay under the radar", is a cop-out, and should not be tolerated by upper management / shareholders.

    Poor Management

    Former Employee - Senior Accounts Receivable in Corona, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Accounts Receivable in Corona, CA

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

    Pros

    Found that most employees were great to work with

    Cons

    Management does not care about how much time employees have put into company, they only look at bottom line. If they lay you off, don't even look to see if you can be moved to another place in company. Know first had they just let you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more in tune with their employees. They just drop the ball when it comes to understanding what can help to improve.

    I worked at Circor Aerospace full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people (peers) are great to work with. They offer tuition reimbursement. The only other positive is the location. Not a lot of big aerospace companies in the IE.

    Cons

    Hire from outside, no promotion from within, poor review process, no raises, biased pro-management HR. People with the most experience in the department get the lowest pay. Management doesn't listen to the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time and effort to invest in your most valuable asset and develop your people so they can be promoted within. How can you create loyalty from your employees if you are not loyal to them? The employees have low morale because management keeps bailing out on them. No one sticks around long enough to make a positive difference. They are all out to beef up their LinkedIn profiles.

  8. Terrible place to work

    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.

  9. Dead end job. Slave labor, no benefits, pro-temp agency labor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people. Stop giving 15 cent raises! Pay fair labor wages!

    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 !
