    in the area of engineering they need more trained and experienced to review it and give wings other areas support staff, security and internal theft

    Advice to Management

    They must comensar a replacement on the welding point, and the whole production team, and train young jente wings for replacement on people who are to retire

    Pros

    defined schedule and a lot of "guidance"
    benefits are decent even though they don't contribute to the HDHP.
    management is very firm on objectives and clear with the direction of where they are taking the company. This doesn't necessarily mean they will get there...

    Cons

    a lot of guidance. unrealistically long hours. inequity among expectations
    unfortunately the burden of compliance is an overarching and hinders making progress. The compliance managers appear inept and have no management experience. they are struggling to navigate through the troubled waters.

    Advice to Management

    get a clue about the real situation of your organization. don't believe what everyone is telling you and spend sometime back in the trenches to see what is really happening.

    Pros

    Small company with many projects going on, allowing you to have a variety of work experiences as you move from project to project. Easy-going environment, with plenty of opportunity to make friends.

    Cons

    Surrounded by rural areas, urban areas are a ways away. Still working to define a career growth path that doesn't involve management (which is limited as far as the number of positions available).

    Pros

    The people are great and are awesome to work with. Esterline truly finds a way to hire good people at our site.

    Cons

    The workload can be heavy, so someone really has to be ready for the challenge of dealing with a heavy workload.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. The company is great to work for.

    Pros

    Employees are nice. Good cross-training practice. Employees really immerse to the new job.

    Cons

    Very old building that we have to wear winter coat and gloves while working on our desk because thermostat was really broken or really old. Maintenance have tried several times to fix it but no change.
