I worked at Ducommun

Pros

good first job, good benefits, interesting projects, latitude to make proposals for new projects and follow own work if the project is funded, not overly taxing work,

Cons

not overly taxing work, poor feedback system from management (1x peryear), billable work meant that people work on a project but do not contribute much to the project's success, large desire for corporate growth by purchasing small to mid level companies, management plans timetables poorly and tends to micromanage as deadlines near

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I enjoyed working for this company but my goals and the companies began to separate. I would have liked more feedback on work performed and less micromanaging.

    Cons

    -micro-management for training can be somewhat counter-productive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very conservative company and office culture. Need more millennial to train up and invest for in the future.

    I have been working at Ducommun full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It all depends on your boss. I have a good boss.

    Cons

    Trying to merge 20 locations into one company (especially when the General Managers are used to be a lord) is challenging.
