Pros

- Flexible schedule
- People philosophy
- Benefits (at least while still it was Goodrich)
- Tuition reimbursement
- Lots of career advancement opportunity
- Great group of people
- Appreciation lunches and recognition dinners
- Product worked on, the smart probe was a great starting point in my career.
- Learned a lot about the Aerospace industry and seems like the way to go for me

- People willing to go above the call of duty to help out!!! (I miss them all already)

Cons

- Schedules not realistic
- A lot of late nights/weekends (expected)
- Raises are mediocre
- Office politics
- Too much focus on things that need improvement vs. successful accomplishments throughout the year on performance review
- Too much paperwork (not just here, everyone has to comply to FAA/EASA)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become involved in all projects, not just the one's that are behind. One of the reasons I left was because I felt left out, and the work I was doing as not important. Become more aware of people's accomplishments along with things they can improve on. Kinda feel that the negative outshines the positive accomplishments.

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

    Pros

    There were a lot of opportunities for professional growth.
    Fellow employees were friendly and willing to assist with questions or guidance.
    Benefits were good and competitive.

    Cons

    As with any large organization many in middle management positions seem to stay employed regardless of their effectiveness as a manager.
    Goodrich was purchased by United Technologies.
    UTC's initial layoffs seemed to be based on some calculation for cost cutting with little influence of how valuable and contributing of an employee is.
    Benefits are in process of being reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee loyalty and commitment is a valuable commodity and creates a highly productive and efficient organization.
