I have been working at GKN Aerospace ChemTronics

Pros

New opportunities on good aerospace programs with a variety of customers

Cons

Resources to support new programs have been laid off or left to work for competitors, management only concerned with financial performance instead of customer service

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Obtain technical expertise to advise programs on how to perform instead.

    I have been working at GKN Aerospace ChemTronics

    Pros

    Very interesting products, processes and materials. Wide customer base with interesting work. The entire crew from the floor to just below management is very talented. They will let you work as many hours as you want (including Christmas day, all day) in most cases if you need money.

    Cons

    Absolutely no training provided at any level, you have to ask for help from your fellow worker on any subject and they'll help you, (that's how they learned). You will become technically less sharp here because of this. Management either does not value the employees or is drowning just like the rest of us are and doing the best they can. Many of the truly talented employees don't last long knowing that they can move to better places that they can benefit and be benefited by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The layoffs do not help (except in severe useless employee cases)! If there is an employee not doing anything, talk to them, give them a project that will better them and the company until things pick up. Be honest, you can afford to keep the good ones until things pick up. Keep the floor in the know, we are all in the dark. This company is not so small that one person can just pick up the job of a laid off worker, opportunities are falling off the table as both jobs get shoddlily completed.

    I have been working at GKN Aerospace ChemTronics

    Pros

    Good Health Benefits, Decent Pay, they do try to give bonuses. They recognize service anniversaries and try to host a yearly lunch event for employees.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work A LOT of hours, they are not staffed adequately and continually lay off and re-hire. Vacation requests are either denied and you are asked to pick a different week when “things are less busy” (it’s always busy) or when you are on vacation, be prepared to answer your phone and work from the beaches of Hawaii or your give up your golf game in Palm Springs to log on and work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time measuring tasks and activities and staff accordingly. When people aren’t cutting it, provide feedback and coaching versus letting them slide and pushing a bigger work load on to others.
