Losing my job to restructering which was not the companies fault it is just the nature of all businesses because the work ebbs and flows with the financial time.

    I worked at Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You certainly gain plenty of experience as an engineer, working on several projects at once. The core group of engineers who have stuck around long-term are mostly a very nice and intelligent group.

    Cons

    Everything is managed like a start-up. Pay is not competitive. Performance reviews are harsh across the board, seemingly to keep salaries down. The volume of work and level of pressure are unsustainable for most people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people for the level of work expected instead of giving it all to top management. The good engineers at the bottom learn pretty quickly that they're getting the raw end of the deal, and it destroys morale.

    I have been working at Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is relaxed to a point where people are mot monitored continuously and this leads to people taking ownership with a good work ethic. The hours are flexible once the weekly hours add up. There is good opportunity for promotion within the company.

    Cons

    There is a strong drive from the top with regard to making sure the margins are right for the shareholders which can be good but sometimes it can lead to people being over worked. There seems to be an uneven salary level where people are paid different rates for similar work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is room for improvement with giving feedback to workers.
