    I worked at Esterline full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was good working in a smaller company, however, had the resources of a larger corporation. Could usually get a project in the works as long as one could prove return on investment.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of collaborative management at the time. Most things passed from the top down for direction and projects. Corporate office stuffy. Not very personable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the employees to have advancement options and career growth. Really seek the input of the staff and also help them to buy into the projects, not just setup what will be done and then implement.
