What started out as very promising, ended up being a complete disappointment!

Pros

Hangar is a state of the art facility. The comraderie of the lower level employees is outstanding. Oklahoma City is a great location.

Cons

Extremely limited opportunities for promotion. Promotions are not based on merit, they are based strictly off of popularity. Mid Level management aren't interested in their employees' ideas. Communication is almost unheard of. Very disorganized. No continuity throughought company, certain employees are given the benefit of the doubt when policies or procedures are broken where as others are repremanded for it. No notice of overtime even when it is planned by managers days in advance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the employees that are doing the majority of the technical work, as they are the ones that make your business. As a company that is trying to grow within the aviation defense contract industry; you need to grow out of the "small time" way of thinking. Get control of/get rid of your managers that are completely incompetent or risk losing your government contracts that makes up the majority of your annual revenue.

    Pros

    The people and the technology.

    Cons

    There aren't many women in leadership even though their is an organized group for woman in leadership. They recognize it and are working on it. It is positive and negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need some diversity on your team.

    I have been working at ARINC

    Pros

    Positive work environment. Frequent paid lunches for accomplishments. Many "lifers" with a commitment to the company. Mostly a good group of people who want to work together.

    Cons

    Poor salary and raises. Bad communication from top management about changes in the company. Almost all discussions from management focus around EBITDA. Career advancement is limited and depending on which department you end up, there is limited growth in your own knowledge and expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the EBITDA thing. Communication to the lower eschalons should focus on more than money. Many people are loyal only because they've been there so long, you need to be able to keep new blood.
