    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 Management

    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

    Pros

    It is steady employment with little turnover unless you show up and literally do nothing. Even then...some people have coasted on that for far too long. A good place to get your career started but not long-term.

    Cons

    A culture laced with complacency and unwillingness to unload tenured employees who coast by based on relationships with senior management. Lack of forward thinking and false ideas as to what the market views as a viable product. Little to no room for advancement and growth within your position is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your antiquated sick time and vacation time allocations. The idea of having to work for two years until you receive two weeks vacation is asinine compared to the industry average. The sick time system essentially forces you to either use vacation time (if you're lucky enough to have it) or come to work and spread the germs. Show your employees that you truly value their contributions and make them feel appreciated.


  3. Run away from this company!!!

    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 Management

    Get rid of most of the familyt

    Pros

    Exciting products in an ever-changing simulation training industry
    Allowed to take on as much as you can handle
    Great people
    Can be a lifetime employee
    Loyal
    Compensation/Benefits

    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 Management

    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.
