I worked at Woodward as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great people, nice work space for a manufacturing company

Cons

Company seemed to be struggling, not the brightest coworkers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need smarter people who understand industrial engineering techniques to improves processes and create efficient lines. I watched mechanical and electrical engineers trying to figure out how to plan a new line. It was embarrassing for them, they had no idea what they were doing.

    Short-term thinking from bonus-obsessed executive management, with no focus on new business development

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Skokie, IL

    I worked at Woodward full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company has a solid medical plan and maintains high corporate integrity. The production workers are dedicated. Motors and Sensors business is sound.

    Cons

    Overemphasis on rules and procedures, at the expense of business efficiency and common sense.
    Claims of "Members matter", backed up with experienced managers run out on trumped up claims of performance issues. Sales and Marketing Dept is completely broken. New product pipeline and ability for innovation are a thing of the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the long term strategy for financial health rather than focusing on your bonus checks for current fiscal year performance.
