I worked at Curtiss-Wright Controls

Pros

Great engineers
Opportunity to work on innovative designs that serve customers well

Cons

Toxic politics
Good engineering is backseat to sales. Projects are promised with inadequate time, planning, and money in a desperate attempt to show bids.
Nepotism Nepotism Nepotism. It exists everywhere but at CW it's a way of life
Open degradation and belittling of employees across the board, top to bottom, performing and non-performing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The one piece of advice for management, namely fire all of the managers and revamp the culture, is the one thing least likely to happen. The place is poison.

    Pros

    the people are great to work with (mid management and below). overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    for people on office hours there is not enough offered for work/life balancing. there used to be a 9-80 schedule worked, but it was stopped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to genuinely listen to the people--don't just go through the motions by taking surveys and doing nothing. really listen to what is going on day to day and react.

    Pros

    The products are Interesting and the worker try to overcome the management short coming by working harder and longer.

    Cons

    Management lacks accountability, which permeates to the lower management and employees. The company has many silos between departments and within departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be interested in doing what is in the best interest of both the company and employees not what is best for personal interests. Eliminate the department and inter-department silos. Provide an environment for open and honest communication.
