    I worked at Curtiss-Wright

    Pros

    - Benefits
    - Pay was decent

    Cons

    Management of all levels:
     - They are clueless to what is going on
     - They don't know what each job entails therefore, there is a constant battle of who should be doing what
     - When they can't figure out an issue they fire individuals who took on the issue but weren't fully trained
     - Assign the work of 3-4 people and expect everything done timely even if that means working 80 hour a week
    - Micromanaging
    - Don't know how to talk to or treat employees
    No work life balance, you have to create your own if you want it
    Every business unit operates as a silos
    Lack of onboard training
    Monthly close process takes weeks to complete because there is not clear way of performing tasks
    No employee appreciation
    Too many politics
    No room for growth because even if promoted you're still doing your previous duties
    Not enough employees for the work
    High turnover
    Not a good work environment, profanity is constantly used, talking down to employees is a constant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up because when good employees understand their worth there will be an even higher turnover. Treat employees with respect because they are people too and not just a timecard!

    Pros

    interesting work, great tools, great people, comp time, flex time, relaxed atmosphere

    Cons

    engineers are expected to do too much, very poorly managed company, union strikes, no 401k match, furloughs, work force reductions, cut backs in training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop putting politics and greed above the greater good of the employees
