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

    Pros

    I made some good friends there work was okay when people like management who had no idea about aircraft would leave you alone to do your job

    Cons

    Working with people from management who would think they knew what they were talking about and they definitely did not it was who you knew to get a promotion in that company eg friends of McFaz and Morrison. The company would actively contact other company's to stop them hiring you i heard of this 4 times and in fact it happened to myself once. Pay was not the best usually just about min wage for a lot of the guys also company promised a pay rise when guys got their licences, none of that happened so guys had to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go find jobs in more suitable industries eg Walmart or Burger King and leave Aviation to people that know what they are doing and were also trained to do? Also listen to employees and don't fob them off as usual and never get back to them.

    I have been working at Diamond Aircraft

    Pros

    they manufacture interesting products, good location

    Cons

    Low morale. Underpaid. There are no opportunities for advancement, pay raises for hourly employees stopped years ago, and will not be coming back anytime soon. Wages are well below industry standard. Favoritism is rampant, and it's easy to sense the frustration and general dissatisfaction most coworkers have when you ask them about Diamond. You must produce (and pay for) a doctors note if you take a sick day. They will harass you about how many sick days you have taken even when it's below the number of sick days you're allotted each year. They won't keep employees informed and if you ask a direct question rarely will you get a direct answer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying your employees what they're worth.

    I have been working at Diamond Aircraft

    Pros

    I didn't have to move

    Cons

    lack of respect, underpaid, overworked, pay doesn't match responsibilities. no clear direction from senior management. There no opportunities to get a promotion but they will increase your responsibilities and work load until you break. If your solution / answer is not what senior management wants to hear then it will be ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide a detail organization chart. Stand by your decisions. Create accurate and realistic schedules that can be acheived.
