Pros

Good benefits. Nice people on the lower levels. The work is challenging & often interesting. It is cool to know that I helped build the airplane I am flying on when I go to the airport.

Cons

Tough work & management exists only to make your life more difficult. The levels of bureaucracy at this company are stunning. The amount of red tape required to get anything done makes me wonder how we accomplish anything at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eliminate the hierarchy & start moving faster. Otherwise your competitors are going to eat you for lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All managers should learn to be humble, listening actively and recognize potential employee regardless of different races. Improve in good motivation is needed. Do proper announcement for all new comers and promoted staffs instead of announce the one whom they favor. Treasure good and potential employees, without them, there is no support for the company.
