    I have been working at Environmental Tectonics as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    ETC had a great atmosphere and awesome people in the creative department. The overall feel of the creative office is completely different than the rest of the company and provides a nice welcoming contrast to the rest of the company.

    Cons

    its a hard place to reach, and many of the other departments lean on you without fully understanding what they are asking of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    certain workspaces need to be updated to feel more modern, and help impress future visitors. Also more perminate positions need to be added to the creative department, rather than student positions

    I worked at Environmental Tectonics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people were very nice. The Flight Training products included a human centrifuge. This was an amazing product line.

    Cons

    Very political with the family in all of the top slots and making all the decisions. Always seemed to be in litigation with companies and the US government.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of most of the familyt

    Cons

    Structure of sales agent accountability in other countries - oversight
    Talent development
    Succession planning
    Hire/keep employees who can lead up/down and across

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitive goals for each business unit and subsequently each employee (function) under said umbrella, adopt more of a shared services model to maximize opportunities.
    Mentors are needed - Great body of knowlege and expertise that can be shared.
    Let the business units that operate well separately have that latitude but still be connected to rest of the company.
    Talent development - Get to know employees (CEO does do this as much as he can) - their goals, career path and find mutual benefits
    Succession planning- good practice - Hire your replacement approach should be taken and seen more.
    Hire/keep employees who can lead up/down and across.
