I enjoy the work I do, but the lack of upward career mobility is beginning to force me to look for other opportunities.

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

Pros

Enjoy the work. Above average benefits.

Cons

Diminished work/life balance. Fear of reprisal for the expression of any opinions contrary to the agenda set forth by management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It took years for Aviall to build the outstanding culture it once had. It has taken only months to tear it down. I'm not sure that the damage that has been done will ever completely be rebuilt.

    Pros

    There are some very talented individuals at Aviall.
    There is always opportunity to learn new lines of business.
    Company has decent benefits and is likely one of the few reasons it still can boast about some of its tenured resources.
    Parent company makes genuine efforts to grow leaders.

    Cons

    You can try to sit back and review every situation on merits of what's observed in an attempt to maintain an open mind. At Aviall, objectivity is relegated as an afterthought. You simply cannot flourish professionally if you observe and articulate deficiencies that need addressing, especially if the observations are contrary to " Ed Dolansky's projected reality".

    This is now a company that is purely driven by executive incentives. Priority is given to projects that have glam but no substance. A good example would be the "Aviation Wing". It's glitzy but leaves you wondering how it's justified to remote branches who operate on 5+ year old hardware.

    Over the last 4 years, Aviall has slipped away from being cognizant of Quality of Life and how those efforts reap tangible rewards - lower health issues, loyalty to stretch when called upon, and retained corporate knowledge. The level of attrition has increased drastically with the latest project in IT and it is becoming obvious that burnout and the aforementioned sentiment is starting to taint the productivity and morale within the organization.

    Boeing should make a serious effort to investigate the effectiveness of Aviall's HR representatives. From the bleachers it appears some serious fumbling has been the result of their efforts with RIF activities.

    In terms of the industry, Aviall is at the top of its niche and there are plenty of contributors still actively involved in the company. But that has been eroding quicker in the last three years and I'm sure Boeing knows something is amiss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You lost something in your pursuit to prove to Boeing that the current Sr. team is competent enough to be trusted with the reins, your vision, your ethical reputation and the trust of those you depend on to make lofty goals a reality.

     It seems that the appearance of impropriety are simply footnotes passed around during annual ethics recommitments. Interference and in some cases outright intimidation tactics are tools for cultural remediation. It's quite apparent at this point that Aviall leadership doesn't want to address its current malaise with honest reflection.

    It now becomes incumbent on Boeing to coarse correct this company before its investment goes luke-warm.

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

    Pros

    Trying to grow in their new business environment imposed by Boeing.
    Benefits are above average.
    Solid company history in aviation industry.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization of organizations. Most recently, several new VP position created. This reorganization is an attempt to deal with the changes in their core customers. They are being very reactive rather than proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After 80+ years as a company without laying off employees, you have managed to destroy the Aviall culture that you have but so much emphasis on trying to capture. The recent lay offs have put a great unease in the employees. Expect the cream to bail.
