Pros

Very relaxed environment. People oriented. They will give you ample opportunities to grow and do better. Recognizes people continuously for good performance.

Cons

Communication is a challenge. Most of management does not know how to deal with conflict positively. Too many emotions and people taking things personally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to play to people's strengths and recognize when people are in the wrong roles. Need to flush out the folks that pull the company backwards.

    Pros

    One of the few companies that still offers a real pension. They don't feel like they own you like some other companies do. They would never dream of bothering you when you are at home unlike other companies who have no compunction in calling you at 4AM in the morning.

    Cons

    The health insurance they offer is only good for catastrophic conditions. There are instances where senior management has very little knowledge of what people that work for them do.

    Promotions are often given suddenly with no opportunity for peers to interview for the position and give rationale as to why they deserve the promotion.

    Seniority within the firm seems to be rewarded with promotions. Sometimes this is wise but other times it seems like it's used as an excuse for upper management to not have to think too hard about who actually deserves the promotion and who is the most competent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seniority does not necessarily impart competence. The Peter Principle is alive and well at Esterline.

    Pros

    Product base, industry reputation, possibilities for advancement. Business units cover broad range of aerospace products, so there is always interesting places to consider working for.

    Cons

    Limited intercompany communication, difficult Corporate support in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate business units a little better, facilitate inter-departmental gatherings more frequently, allow Group Vice Presidetns to particpate in inter-company efforts.
