Poor leadership

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Melbourne, FL

ProsThis company is a leader in avionics. It has a wealth of knowledge as well as very capable engineers working here. The avionics are high quality and reliable.

ConsProjects are poorly managed and bid. It would seem that when every project slips schedule and runs over budget that the bidding process needs revision. Poor planning becomes the burden of the employee.

The review system is set up to be easy to rate employees down, not up. The common theme was a person's 'perception' rather than work output. You can see this radiating from upper management in the Melbourne location.

~3% raise is the norm.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on positive reinforcement of your employees rather than breathing down their neck asking daily when they will be done. A simple 'thank you,' or 'good job,' goes a long way toward not creating such a negative environment.

Create realistic project deadlines and quit allowing scope creep every time a customer bats an eye.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Do not like the fact… Advice to Senior Management: 1st line management will not tell upper management want really happens with getting product out the door. For one thing it has to go through… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
