    Pros

    Pay is Good. If you are over fifty five you may feel comfortable here. The work here will make you proud to be an America!

    Cons

    Peerless is a division of Curtiss-Wright that seems to be aloud to operate as a stand alone company. It seems that Curtiss-Wright has little or no knowledge of the day to day activities at Peerless. Management is very secretive about how they handle this operation and the way they treat their employees. Though there are some great people that work here. If you like working back in the 1980's this is the place for you! Don't even consider to suggest any improvements you will be cut off immediately. Their way or the highway. Most managers are good people though their is one in manufacturing that no one here likes and is an appalling human being with no class. The waste that goes on here is beyond belief. It is truly a shame. Working here makes you proud to be an American but embarrassing to be an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hello! Wake up! Clean up this division. Replace most of your management team! They seem to have been left behind in time. You are welcome to join us in the twenty first century! Get out of the 1980s already! Stop waste!

    Pros

    The Curtiss-Wright Facilities Department is a very friendly work environment. It allows for a great deal of communication between workers. They allow for advancement every year through performance reviews. You are usually considered for a percentage pay increase and once your pay has reached the top of a pay scale they consider a promotion. They generally are good about giving time off and being considerate of your home life and any issuse you may have to deal with there.

    Cons

    Sometimes ideas can be dismissed due to a resistance of change in the company. A union causes work to be slower than it should be due to a "the way it's been" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to eliminate down time in the union workers and start to phase out older workers who are resistant to change. Bring in new young workers who have new and fresh ideas.
