I worked at Barnes Aerospace

Pros

* Opportunities to make things happen
* Talented workforce
* Big company that feels like a family operation
* Good benefits including tuiton reimbursement

Cons

It doesn’t take long to learn that this division has one goal and one goal only—meeting sales forecast. Chaos abounds with this singularly focused goal; scrap rates are high; on-time delivery suffers; and the end of the month is always a production marathon.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Meeting sales forecast is of course important but to be first-class the company needs to truly adopt and adhere to a triple-bottom-line mission maximizing value for three distinct stakeholders—people (customers and employees), profit, and planet (environmental consciousness).
