Pros

The work culture at SNC is one of professionalism, rapid response, quality, and exceeding the customer’s expectations. There is terrific variety. I worked three different programs during my first year. While that presents challenges, it also provides great breadth of experience in a short time. The company provides great training and career development opportunities. This is the best I have ever been treated by top management.

Cons

The exponential growth of the company presents real challenges. If you want to work one program for the long term this probably isn’t the place for you. The communication between programs is problematic so there is a tendency to reinvent the wheel instead of using engineering that has already been done in another program. This is driven by the massive amount of work to be done and short suspenses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No complaints. The single most important action by management at SNC is identifying those key individuals with the ability and expertise to communicate and lead within their groups and across programs. Exacerbated by exponential growth.

    Great "small" company to work for.

    Pros

    Still has a small company feel, even though the company is growing incredibly quickly.
    World class aerospace (and military) product manufacturer with a huge range of products and services to work on.
    Nice, caring co-workers.

    Cons

    Some "good old boy" attitudes about women in engineering, specifically aerospace, persist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actively work to discourage sexism in the workplace. You can't just take a passive role and hope it goes away.

    Pros

    I love working here! The owners are so generous and kind and truly appreciate their employees. They do expect 110% but I feel they also give you 110% as well. Great benefits, great pay and a great group of employees. I wish that I would have found this company years ago.

    Cons

    I would have to agree with the other reviewers about the growing pains. I hope that we can continue to grow but also to realize that we are now a large company and need more hands as we continue to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing and showing your employees appreciation and I'm sure you'll continue to get 110% in return but also keep in mind that a good work/life balance is also essential to happy/productive employees.
