Never again

Order Specialist (Former Employee)
Kent, WA

I worked at TMX Aerospace

Pros*Their insurance options were good--medical, dental and vision.
*Maternity leave benefits were good (by word of mouth)
*A lot of really great co-workers (i.e. the minions)

Cons*Work is mind numbing
*Mid and upper level management does not practice open or honest communication with underlings despite an "open door policy"
*Attendance policy is strict and leaves no room for flexibility for whatever reason. (A policy better suited for a maufacturing/manual labor type of environment, NOT a skilled work force)
*Management is not interested in leveraging their employee's strengths. It is a "fall in line" culture.
*Questions and critical thinking/suggestions are not looked kindly upon: management labels those who ask challenging questions as uncooperative.
*Company's adherance to largest contract (with a huge, international aerospace company) is questionable.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who do the work. Take a step back, away from your own ego, and look at the job that needs to be done. Read books and take classes on effective management. Executive management: hire qualified middle managers (company experience alone does not make for a qualified middle manager). Consider this: while other large, pacific northwest companies are increasing employee flexibility (and realizing increased profits, employee morale and loyalty as a result), TMX Aerospace is not. Morale, turnover and employee satisfaction are suffering. Your company will suffer.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It was a nightmare that I'm still trying to get past.
