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 ManagementAdvice

Listen 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.

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

    I worked at TMX Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    The monthly bonus helps offset the poor wage, benefits are decent. If you are part of the old crowd (have been there 4+ years) you can get away with a level of attendance, errors, and dereliction of duties that anybody else would be rapidly fired for.

    Cons

    I was appalled at the handling of resumes, applications, and interviewees, which were read aloud and/or joked about. Write ups were numerous, and the accuracy of them was not a concern. It was truly sad to see and hear about how wide spread this callous practice is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turnover is off the chart! If any company needs to learn what a healthy work place is and what it can do for productivity...this one does.

    I have been working at TMX Aerospace

    Pros

    The people with the factory are easy to talk to. The atmosphere fairly relaxed as long as you complete the projects required by you.

    Cons

    The salary is not competitive with other companies around the area. The company also is not shy about firing and hiring new people at will.
